Can I File an Injury Claim for an Exploding E-Cigarette?
E-cigarette devices have maintained popularity ever since they were first placed on the market a few years ago. Today, people across the country are using “Juul” devices, which are essentially small, simplified e-cigarettes. What is most interesting about the continued popularity of e-cigarettes is that it has maintained even after news broke out about them exploding unexpectedly.
Throughout the years, there have been many stories of exploding e-cigarettes causing serious harm. Some people get injured by the explosion while the e-cigarette is placed in their mouth, causing oral and dental injuries. Others are hurt by flames that spark out of the device during the explosion. If they are inside their home, the sparks could cause a house fire and catastrophic damages.
For the most part, faulty batteries inside e-cigarettes have been linked to the dangerous defects and explosions. Similar to hoverboards that have caused house fires, it was found that overcharging an e-cigarette battery may cause it to explode. The problem is worsened by the fact that it might not explode right away, but instead at any unpredictable time.
