Lieff Cabraser represents a young man who suffered a stroke as a result of his addiction to Juul vaped tobacco. Widespread media attention has focused on new studies and reports serious dangers and heightened risks associated with Juul products, particularly for users under the age of 26. The wide-ranging reports of injuries among young Juul users include strokes and heart attacks as well as other deadly reactions like pneumonia and inhalation disorders. Juul e-cigarettes are especially popular among young adults due to their teen-targeted sleek and discreet design and liquid-filled cartridges (“Juul pods”) that come in a variety of candy-like and other flavors, and that popularity is leading to serious adverse health consequences for younger Americans.
Our firm is investigating harrowing reports of strokes, heart and other coronary diseases, and seizures alleged to be related to vape use, as well as inhalation injury, inhalation pneumonitis and toxic inhalation pneumonitis, and pneumonia.
The plaintiff in the Juul injury lawsuit alleges that Juul manufactures and markets products that are inherently defective and do not perform safely as per user expectations, expectations created by Juul’s pervasive marketing. The lawsuit states claims that the Juul products deliver high doses of nicotine that far outweigh any claimed benefits. Juul is accused of a failure to adequately and properly warn potential users about the dangers in Juul as well as negligence in the manufacture, labeling, and promotion of its highly addictive products. Further, the company will not recall the devices despite the high risk of stroke in the young users it targets; the complaint notes that the Juul devices and pods are unsafe for anyone under 26, delivering as they do the equivalent of two full packs of old-style cigarettes with each single Juul pod.
