Ehrlich & Naparstek, Personal Injury Lawyers are reviewing claims on behalf of Americans who used a JUUL vaporizer prior to November of 2018 and before turning 18 years of age, and who subsequently developed a nicotine addiction.
About the JUUL Addiction Lawsuit
JUUL Labs, the makers of JUUL e-cigarettes and vapor pods, are facing lawsuits alleging that they didn’t adequately warn users of the risks associated with using their products. JUUL markets its products as a safer alternative to regular cigarettes, but they still contain nicotine. In fact, JUUL products contain significantly more nicotine than their leading competitors—and nicotine is an addictive and potentially seriously harmful substance.
Nicotine can be harmful to anyone at any age, but it has been shown to be significantly more harmful to children and teens, who are also much more likely to become addicted to it. JUUL didn’t do enough to warn users of these risks, and it may have even directly marketed to children and teens.
Regularly smoking cigarettes has never been less popular among teens and children, so for them, JUUL usually isn’t a replacement for a dangerous habit. Rather, it’s a brand new hobby that they take up because it seems “cool” and because it comes in flavors that appeal to them.
Minors who became addicted to nicotine after using a JUUL vape have suffered serious harm. Ehrlich & Naparstek wants to hold JUUL accountable, and get compensation for those victims. If you or a loved one became addicted to nicotine after using a JUUL vape while still a minor, you may be eligible for compensation.
Irresponsible Corporate Behavior
So far, JUUL has been the most recognized name in the race to dominate the exploding e-cigarette market. A recent valuation pegged the company as worth more than $38 billion, and it has received a major round of investment from a tobacco products conglomerate.
But there is evidence that much of this success can be attributed to its popularity among young people, including children and teens. The company certainly thought so, as significant attention was paid in the early days to making JUUL appear young, hip, and appealing to younger consumers. The company allegedly directly and intentionally advertised to children and teens, even going so far as to do presentations in schools under the guise of mental health and anti-addiction seminars.
JUUL didn’t quit this behavior until federal and state governments started investigations and threatening the company with fines and legislation. And they only started putting sufficient nicotine warnings on their products when forced to by law. But millions of people have already used JUUL products without knowing the dangers, including an untold number of teens. Many of whom now have a nicotine addiction.
Fighting for Justice
JUUL is busy trying to clean up its act now, but the damage has been done. If you’re one of the tens of thousands of people who used JUUL products as a minor and then acquired a nicotine addiction, you may be facing health damage from nicotine in the future, as well the pain, discomfort, and cost of trying to quit. We think you should be compensated for that and JUUL should be held accountable for that harm.
