Over the past decade, countless people have turned to e-cigarettes as a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes. In 2015, JUUL was brought to the market in the United States and marketed as a safe alternative for users. Marketing tactics led people to believe that e-cigarettes, like JUUL, were safe and came without risk. However, users quickly found out that this claim was far from true. After the widespread use of JUUL, we saw a drastic increase in the number of users being hospitalized with lung problems and various other health consequences related to its use. Furthermore, countless teens developed an addiction to nicotine and had serious problems with stopping the use of the product.
If you have suffered adverse health consequences following the use of a JUUL product, you may have legal options available for you. The mass tort lawyers at Rebein Brothers are currently evaluating claims for victims who suffered lung damage and other health consequences following the use of a JUUL vaporizer before November 2018 and developed an addiction to nicotine prior to their 18th birthday. If you feel you meet the criteria, contact our law firm at your earliest convenience to discuss the potential legal options available for you.
The Irresponsible Behaviors of JUUL Labs
E-cigarettes known as JUUL have continued to dominate the market across the country. The company quickly rose to the top of the industry with an estimated value of $38 billion. However, there is mounting evidence that shows that the success of the company is a direct result of its rise in popularity among younger users. JUUL Labs took a proactive move toward marking their products to younger consumers.
Allegations against JUUL Labs state that the company engaged in various activities that primarily and pointedly advertised their products to young teens and children. In some instances, JUUL Labs even went to schools across the country to introduce their products to children. If you have suffered adverse health consequences and developed an addiction to nicotine, prior to your 18th birthday, you need to take quick legal action to ensure your rights and best interests are protected. A JUUL lawsuit may provide you the relief you need moving forward.
Information about the JUUL Addiction Lawsuit
JUUL Labs, which offers both JUUL e-cigarettes and vapor pods for use, is currently facing several lawsuits surrounding the link between their products and the potential development of addictions among users. The current lawsuit alleges that JUUL Labs failed to properly warn users of the potential risks of developing an addiction to nicotine following the use of their products as well as other potential health consequences.
Further studies have found that JUUL products contain amounts of nicotine that are significantly more than the levels contained in products offered by some of their leading competitors.
Nicotine is known to be harmful to users of any age. However, users who are under the age of 18 are at a significantly higher risk of suffering additional health complications. Juveniles, in general, are at a higher risk of developing an addiction to the product as well. JUUL Labs did not adequately warn users of the potential risks associated with their products and, for this reason, they should be held accountable for their actions. Additionally, it is believed that JUUL Labs took action to directly market the product to children and teens.
JUUL is not always viewed as an alternative to teens and children smoking cigarettes, but it is being viewed as a new hobby that is “cool” because of the variety of flavors offered to users.
Teens and children who develop additions to nicotine as a result of using JUUL products ended up experiencing adverse health consequences at an alarming rate across the country.
