E-Cigarette Explosion Attorneys

The e-cigarette industry took the world by storm. Many smokers, wishing for a safer alternative to their habit, quickly flocked to the new trend, with many manufacturers claiming that these smokers were making a healthy choice by switching from traditional tobacco to e-cigarettes. However, between loose FDA regulation and problems with the e-cigarette devices themselves, these products are much more dangerous than they seem. In fact, they might be more dangerous than cigarettes considering the risk of bodily injury the devices pose to the user.

E-cigarettes are essentially lithium-ion batteries that you keep in your pocket, but portability is often their downfall. In some cases, the device can short-circuit due to faulty design or because it’s left in extreme weather conditions, causing it to ignite and emit fire from the battery. Many users keep their e-cigarettes in their pockets as they traverse through their daily life, but if the device becomes too hot, it can potentially explode and cause serious burns to the user’s leg and torso. To make matters worse, some e-cigarettes are manufactured cheaply, which increases the risk of a short circuit and places an inferior product in the hands of consumers, all to bolster a profit margin.

E-cigarette explosions congested news headlines for years, yet they aren’t as publicized anymore despite more and more victims coming forward with stories of painful injuries. These “pro-health” smoking alternatives are harming consumers across the nation, and something needs to change before a greater number of people are harmed by these dangerous products. Morgan & Morgan stands with the victims of these traumatic accidents, and if you’ve been injured, we’re just a phone call away.

Purchasing an e-cigarette product is essentially a gamble, as you won’t know how responsible the manufacturer acted during the production process.

However, this isn’t your fault, and the numerous victims of this tragedy can find solace in their situation by filing a lawsuit against the negligent manufacturer and pursuing compensation.

At Morgan & Morgan, we understand that the price for your pain is infinite, which is why we’ll never settle for a penny less than you deserve. Your injuries aren’t something that the manufacturer can just shrug off; They need to be held accountable for putting dangerous products in the hands of consumers.

FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • What Vape Pen Brands Are Exploding?

    Once e-cigarettes gained popularity, companies around the world started to manufacture and sell their own devices to enter the scene and get their foot in the door. While some companies tried to produce solid products, others chose to place quantity over quality and sold millions of products containing inferior materials and faulty components to innocent consumers looking for an alternative to cigarettes. These faulty products have stayed on store shelves for years without FDA regulations despite their risk of harm, causing more avoidable injuries multiple times per year.

    Here are a few brands that have injured their customers:

    • SMOK X Priv
    • Smok Alien
    • Wismec Reuleaux
    • Wismec
    • Vuse
    • VGod
    • Vaporesso
    • VaporDNA
    • Trulieve
    • SMOK
    • Sigelei KAOS
    • Jaybo
    • INNOKIN
    • GeekVape

    Although the aforementioned devices have injured their users, many more have gone unreported. New companies enter the industry every day and sell their faulty products to innocent consumers who are unaware they have a dangerous device sitting in their pocket. It’s best to avoid e-cigarettes entirely until safety measures are put at the forefront of the manufacturing process.

  • Can Disposable Vape Pens Explode?

    There have been no reported cases of disposable vape pens exploding and injuring users, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. As the name suggests, disposable vape pens are designed to be used and thrown away by their user over a short period of time. Users commonly hold onto these devices for a few days, then purchase a new one once the device is out of e-liquid. Unlike other e-cigarettes, most vape pens aren’t rechargeable, which decreases the likelihood of a problem forming within the battery. 

  • Can a Vape Explode?

    In short, yes, a vape can explode and cause injury to the user. E-cigarettes, otherwise known as vapes, contain powerful lithium-ion batteries within their plastic construction. If the battery becomes damaged or is exposed to extreme temperatures, it can cause the device to malfunction and burst into flames. Unfortunately, many of these devices are manufactured poorly, with the companies behind them putting little to no thought into protecting the component of the device that has the greatest potential of harm. Most e-cigarettes are made of plastic, and if the user drops or bumps into something with the device in their pocket, it can compromise the battery without the user’s knowledge. If they’re wearing thick clothing while they have it in their pocket, they might not notice that their device is overheating and about to explode, which has resulted in numerous cases of second and third-degree burns.

  • What Causes a Vape to Explode?

    Lithium-ion batteries contain two key components: an anode and a cathode. A plastic separator piece separates the two, but if the separator shifts, it can cause the battery to rapidly produce energy and overheat, otherwise known as a short-circuit. Many vape pens are manufactured with cheap components, with many companies failing to properly secure the battery within the device prior to sale. Once a user has the e-cigarette in their hands, one small bump could compromise the battery and result in serious injury. 

  • What Injuries Are Caused by Vaping?

    Vaping injuries stray from the traditional injuries associated with cigarettes due to the potential for the device itself to cause physical harm. However, any injury that you can sustain from smoking traditional tobacco, such as throat and mouth damage, is also consistent with e-cigarette use. Here are a few injuries that are caused by vapes and e-cigarettes:

    • Cracked/damaged teeth
    • Lacerations
    • Soft tissue injuries
    • Lost extremities, such as a finger
    • Scarring
    • Burns
    • Vision damage/blindness

    A malfunctioning lithium-ion battery transforms from something harmless to a spectacle of fire and heat in mere moments, forcing users to move quickly and remove the device from their clothing or get to a safe distance. In more severe cases, consumers have had these products explode in their faces during use. These individuals often require reconstructive surgery to repair the damage to their face and upper torso, and without compensation, they’re forced to pick up the pieces on their own. 

    Unfortunately, two individuals have already lost their lives from a malfunctioning e-cigarette device, and there could be many more unless the manufacturers emphasize safety in their production process. If you or a loved one was injured by a malfunctioning e-cigarette device, our attorneys can help you file a lawsuit and pursue the compensation you’re entitled to.
