Missouri E-Cigarette Lung Damage Claims Lawyers

E-Cigarette Lung Damage Claims Lawyer in Missouri. E-Cigarettes were released in 2007 as a trendy and “healthy” way for smokers to quit; “e-liquid” or “vape juice” contains varying levels of extracted nicotine, rather than the high levels of nicotine that can be found in traditional cigarettes. Recently, hundreds of reports of lung damage from vaping have surfaced, prompting the FDA to investigate e-cigarettes and lung damage. If you have been diagnosed with lung disease, seizures, or heart disease linked to e-cigarettes, you could be entitled to compensation.

E-Cigarette Lung Damage Claims Lawyers in Missouri

The link between e-cigarettes and lung damage has become such a concern, that several states have considered banning e-cigarette use, while others, such as Boulder, CO, have banned the sale of flavored e-cigarettes specifically. Currently, the only state that has successfully banned e-cigarette sales completely is San Francisco, California. The push to ban the sale of e-cigarettes and flavored e-liquid is linked to the nearly 200 reports of lung damage caused by vaping in the U.S.

E-cigarette use can lead to chronic bronchitis (COPD), “popcorn lung,” acute respiratory disease, and other lung conditions.

Symptoms of Lung Damage from E-Cigarettes | Missouri E-Cigarette Lung Damage Claims Lawyers

The recent surge of e-cigarette lung damage reports have mostly involved teenagers and young adults under the age of 25. According to a study by the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, while there isn’t long-term evidence of the effects of vaping in adults, there’s substantial evidence that vaping causes irreversible lung damage in youth. The symptoms of e-cigarette lung damage include:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Severe nausea and vomitting
  • Loss of conciousness
  • Blurred vision
  • Chest or heart pain
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Severe, chronic coughing fits

Earlier this month, a 20-year-old had to be airlifted to a Utah hospital after suffering severe nausea, chest pains and trouble breathing out of nowhere. The victim was diagnosed with acute respiratory failure and had to be placed on advanced life support to heal damage on his lungs. In another case, recently, an Illinois resident died after being hospitalized with a severe respiratory illness linked to vaping; this is the first reported incident of fatal lung damage caused by e-cigarettes.

E-Cigarette Lung Damage Claims in Missouri

With e-cigarette lung damage lawsuits surfacing across the U.S., it’s no surprise that the issue is also a concern in St. Louis. Earlier this month, a mother in Kansas City, Missouri, filed a class-action lawsuit against vape manufacturer, Juul, after her 14-year-old daughter suddenly became more and more sick. The lawsuit claims that Juul’s marketing strategy is targeted at teenagers to get them hooked on nicotine, and more likely to become a smoker. According to the lawsuit, the teen has been suffering from severe anxiety, irritability, and frequent headaches caused by vaping, and tried to quit vaping for months, but has been unsuccessful.

If you have suffered lung damage from e-liquid chemicals, you need to document symptoms, such as trouble breathing, coughing, wheezing, nausea, and vomiting, and get immediate medical treatment. Medical reports can confirm that lung damage is linked to vaping, and is compelling evidence for your e-cigarette lung damage claim in Missouri.

Along with gathering evidence, it’s vital to consult a Missouri E-Cigarette Lung Damage Claims Lawyer and discuss your case’s potential for recovering compensation. Compensation for product liability and injury claims, such as e-cigarette lung damage claims in Missouri, include medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of income, loss of consortium, and other damages caused by a hazardous product.
