New York JUUL E-Cigarette Injury Attorneys
Fighting for Minors Who Suffer from Addiction, Lung, and Stroke Injury
The electronic cigarette or “vaping” industry has expanded at an alarming rate over the last few years, and the San Francisco-based company JUUL has been the uncontested leader, offering a social-media friendly nicotine vaping pod product. By creating childlike flavors and using aggressive marketing strategies towards minors, JUUL has caused many teenagers to develop e-cigarette addictions – and suffer painful chronic injuries in the process.
Because of this, many plaintiffs have come forward to claim that JUUL has engaged in fraud and deceptive advertising practices. The federal government has also launched several investigations into JUUL’s social media influencer campaigns and other advertising programs. Currently, our New York JUUL injury lawyers are investigating legal claims for minors harmed by this dangerous product. If you are a parent who feels your child has been injured by JUULing, we will investigate which parties can be held liable for the damages.

Side Effects from JUUL Vaping Pods
Although the makers of e-cigarettes often claim that they are “safer” than their conventional counterparts, the truth is that these products invite their own health risks and hazards. By delivering higher doses of nicotine disguised with fruit-flavored vapor, JUUL pods hit a user’s system much faster and harder than the standard combustion-based cigarette. Unfortunately, most users are completely unaware that JUUL e-cigarettes contain higher levels of nicotine than any other brand in the industry – and this makes users susceptible to overdose, nicotine poisoning, and other catastrophic injuries. Minors are also at a heightened risk of interrupted brain development when using JUUL products.
These serious health issues have been associated with JUUL e-cigarette use:
- Heart Attack or Myocardial Infarction
- Hospitalization with Pneumonia
- Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis
- Eosinophilic Pneumonia
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Advanced Asthma
- Nicotine Addiction
- Wrongful Death
