The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently reported that as of the first of October, more than 1,000 lung injury cases had been filed. There have been eighteen deaths in fifteen states – and two of those deaths happened in California. As a result, health officials have issued strong advisements not to vape until the reason for the deaths is better known – even if the product you are vaping does not contain nicotine or THC.

Your Rights if You Have Been Harmed by Vaping Products or E-Cigarettes
There have been several deaths and many injuries caused by exploding vaping devices. There have been product liability and product defect claims filed in these cases. The hardest part of winning these cases is generally proving who was at fault. The good news is that with more research by unbiased government agencies and others within the health care world, answers are being uncovered.
If you have been injured in a vaping injury, your next step should be to contact a personal injury attorney who can help you better understand your case and your legal rights. If the manufacturer or another party was at fault for your injury to understand your rights to compensation for damages better then they should be held financially responsible for their actions.
In order to win this type of case, we will need to prove that the vaping product or device actually caused the injury or illness. We must also show that the party that caused the unsafe product had a duty of care to you and that they breached said duty of care. You can count on the vaping industry to have attorneys work hard to disprove your claim – but we will be there To.
You May Be Able to Recover Compensation for a Variety of Damages Due to Vaping
It is true that if you have suffered an illness or injury from vaping, a civil lawsuit is not going to get rid of how terrible you feel. However, you can receive compensation for your damages, which can help you recover and get any additional help you need.
Depending on your case, you may be able to recover damages for past and future medical costs, rehab and therapy costs, lost income, permanent disability, pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life. These are just some of the types of damages you may have suffered and for which you may be owed compensation. Contact The Law Offices of Larry H.
