E-cigarettes have been growing among the youth, mainly because vaping is considered a “safer alternative” to smoking. However, various studies show that vaping poses the same health risk as traditional cigarettes. Mostly, brain, lungs, and heart issues from e-cigarettes are common.
Vaping has gained popularity due to its manipulative marketing tactics. Initially, e-cigarettes were launched, saying it is a better and safer option for people suffering from cigarette addictions. Soon, it was revealed that JUUL targeted a young audience to market their products and put them at a higher risk.
Additionally, the rise in death from e-cigarettes has been rising over the years. Similarly, it has landed hundreds of people in the hospital due to severe health problems. People who are already using e-cigarettes have been complaining about excessive addiction. This is primarily due to a lack of information from the marketing companies and manipulative marketing.
If your child is below 18 or you have been a victim of health issues from Juul or similar vaping devices, you can file a lawsuit against them.

Common health complications include:
- Lung cancer

The research is still going on the adverse effects of e-cigarettes. However, vaping poses a similar risk to cigarettes.

When can you file for the Juul lawsuit?
Anyone who became a victim of Juul’s targeted marketing campaign and suffered from health complications can file a lawsuit against Juul. You are entitled to get compensation for the damages you incurred due to the company’s negligence and warn consumers about the severe health complications.
The first step to filing a lawsuit would be to stop using the device. If you are suffering from severe addiction, quitting by following the cold turkey method can make you suffer from withdrawal symptoms, resulting in severe injuries and health complications. You can follow an appropriate method and work gradually to quit.
Another crucial step is to contact an attorney who can guide you on all the legal steps involved, such as gathering evidence, signing necessary documents, presenting your case and more.
