E-cigarettes appeal to those cigarette smokers trying to quit smoking (although it has been proven not to help with this goal outside medical intervention), those individuals who want to smoke in traditionally smoke-free areas, or those that enjoy the technology of a reusable device.

While they may have less cancer-causing tobacco, e-cigarettes are highly addictive and dangerous in different ways. If you have been injured because of an e-cigarette, call the highly experienced Miami e-cigarette lawyers at The Alvarez Law Firm. We are ready to get started on a winning case for you today. It only takes one call and no money upfront to hire us. Call now!

E-cigarette Technology

The same technology that draws users into e-cigarette use is the one that injures them in serious, life-changing ways. E-cigarettes contain a battery-operated power source, an atomizer, and a refillable liquid cartridge. This design is highly sensitive and often poorly constructed and often causes burns or possible explosions. Cheap mass production, major design flaws, and temperature variability have all been attributed to causing major burns on users, many of whom have the device directly in their hand or pocket at the time of the explosion—a positioning that makes the injuries all the more severe. 

E-cigarette Injuries

E-cigarette injuries are varied but can have a lasting impact on the victim and their families.

While research is still ongoing to investigate the totality and scope of the adverse medical impact, here’s a look at some of the more common injuries we help clients receive compensation for in a winning e-cigarette lawsuit:

  • Major and minor burns
  • Abdominal pain
  • Blurry vision
  • Headaches
  • Throat and mouth irritation
  • Nausea 
  • Coughing
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Chest pain
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Obstructive lung disease
  • Myocardial infarctions
  • Developing fetus issues

While the marketing around e-cigarettes suggests they are a healthier alternative, they can also be a gateway to tobacco use and because of the huge appeal to youths, there is an additional layer of concerns and lasting health issues. Additionally, while e-cigarettes were originally designed for nicotine and other cigarette-mimicking mixtures, there have now been many other dangerous liquids found and consumed by unsuspecting users, including formaldehyde and metallic nanoparticles. Your injuries are unique to you, and the best thing you can do is see a doctor to heal and recover and then call the Alvarez Law Firm to discuss your legal options further.
