California E-Cig Explosion Lawyers
Standing Up for Consumers throughout California
The e-cigarette industry has expanded rapidly in recent years. Many people have switched from traditional cigarettes to e-cigarettes – also known as vaporizers – in their pursuit of a healthier alternative. “Vaping” has become increasingly common but does not come without risks. With the increase in e-cigarette usage, we have also seen an increase in e-cig explosion claims.
If you have sustained injuries from a defective e-cig, you may be eligible to seek financial recovery through a personal injury claim. At Marcereau & Nazif, our California e-cig explosion lawyers can investigate the circumstances of the incident and determine your legal options. Our firm will work vigorously on your behalf to help you recover the financial damages to which you may be entitled.
E-Cigarette Explosions & Injuries
E-cigarettes turn a mixture of chemicals into a vapor that can be inhaled. Most e-cigs use rechargeable lithium-ion batteries as a power source to turn the chemicals into a gas through a heated coil. The majority of e-cig explosions have been caused by the battery exploding either while recharging or while in the pocket or hands of consumers.
These explosions can then cause:
- Serious injuries, such as burns
- Fires that can spread beyond the area where the e-cig is located
- The battery to eject and cause physical injuries
Even non-rechargeable e-cigs, called “cig-alikes” have been reported to explode while in consumers’ hands.
