Missouri Vaping Lung Damage Attorneys

Recently, there have been nearly 100 reports of lung illnesses caused by teen vaping. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is currently investigating the link between vaping and lung damage, but a recent study found that vaping also causes damage to vital immune system cells, a rapid decrease in attention span, increased heart rate and blood pressure, and other serious side-effects. With 1 out of 5 high school students reporting having vaped in the past month, and nearly 10.8 million adults in the U.S. using e-cigarettes, lung damage caused by vaping has become a serious concern.

If you were recently diagnosed with lung damage from vaping, or your teenager has had trouble breathing, chest pain, a drastic decrease in attention span, or other harm from vaping, you could be eligible to bring a product liability suit against the manufacturer or distributor of the e-cigarette device.

Vaping Lung Damage | St. Louis Vaping Lung Damage Attorneys

The sleek design of e-cigarette devices, combined with the array of fruity flavors available on the market makes vapes such as Juul’s and Blu’s marketable towards young adults and teens. High schools have issued bans on e-cigarettes, but it remains an issue among teens under the age of 18. According to the Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin public health departments which are currently investigating reports of lung damage from vaping in teens, cases have ranged from mild (chest pain, breathing problems, nausea) to severe (elevated heart rate and severe lung damage requiring weeks of treatment in the ICU), and have mostly involved substances such as nicotine, marijuana, and other harmful substances.

The e-cigarette craze among teens and young adults has long been scrutinized, despite the recent surge of lung damage reports. According to the American Cancer Society, while vaporizers are less harmful than cigarettes, they are just as, if not more, addictive than traditional cigarettes, which can seriously harm teens and young adults whose bodies are still developing. During a person’s formative years, toxic chemicals such as those found in liquid nicotine and other vaping substances can permanently affect the following aspects of a teen or young adults health:

  • Respiratory issues – shortness of breath, lung damage, or chest pain
  • Heart problems – a persistent, sometimes chronically, elevated heart rate or blood pressure
  • Reduced brain functionality – decreased attention span, extreme fatigue
  • Gastrointestinal issues – extreme nausea or vomiting

While vape manufacturers such as Blu and Juul aren’t currently required to list all of the ingredients used in vape pods, known e-liquid flavoring chemicals, Acetoin, acetyl propionyl, and diacetyl, commonly referred to as Diketones, have been scrutinized by medical professionals for their use in e-liquids since e-cigarettes were put on the market in 2007. Acetoin reacts in e-liquids and forms diacetyl, which in large doses, can be toxic. According to a study on e-liquids, acetoin, and diacetyl, the toxic reaction of acetoin, diacetyl, and nicotine, can cause respiratory issues, such as the conditions listed above, when vaped.

Information on the toxic effects of e-cigarettes and vaping is continually unfurling in the healthcare industry, but every day, more and more victims of lung damage from vaping are pursuing claims to recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages caused as a result of vaporizers and e-cigarettes.

Vaping Lung Damage Claims in Missouri

Dozens of teens and young adults have reported serious health complications attributed to vaping over the past few weeks. Earlier this month, a 26-year-old in Wisconsin was hospitalized with severe pneumonia after he began experiencing intense coughing fits, trouble breathing, and a drastically increased heart rate. The victim, who has asthma, has been vaping for almost a year, and according to healthcare officials, needed to be put into an induced coma and attached to a ventilator during recovery after fluid rapidly built up in his lungs.

In addition to the vaping victim in Wisconsin, other reports of vaping lung damage include cases in Texas and Florida, both pertaining to teens under the age of 18 that suffered collapsed and perforated lungs as a result of vaporizer use.

If you or your child have suffered lung damage or other serious health complications from vaping, it’s crucial to seek immediate medical attention, gather documentation of your injuries (medical report), and consult with an experienced Vaping Lung Damage Lawyer in St. Louis about the possibility of recovering compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other expenses caused by vaping.
