E-Cigarette Injuries

Have you or a loved one been seriously injured or killed due to the use of e-cigarettes/vaping?

Despite originally being introduced as a healthier alternative for smokers, electronic cigarettes and vaping products have increasingly shown that they may not be healthier at all.

And even worse, the marketing campaigns for these e-cigarettes, which come in fun flavors, are appealing to younger and younger audiences. In fact, an investigation conducted by both Illinois and Wisconsin state health departments found that the victims – mostly young men – had a median age of only 19.

As more e-cigarette users find themselves in the hospital suffering from serious lung diseases – despite being previously healthy – the harmful impact of the $1.96 billion vaping market only appears to increase. Evidence is now showing that e-cigarettes are much more harmful (and addictive) than previously held out to be.

Symptoms

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), patients have generally experienced chest pain, coughing, and shortness of breath prior to being hospitalized. Other symptoms include:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Weight Loss

Many of these individuals have ended up with acute respiratory distress syndrome, a life-threatening condition that can prevent the necessary oxygen from circulating in the bloodstream.

  • Juul
  • Suorin Drop
  • Naked
