Morgan & Morgan is fighting to hold e-cigarette brand Juul accountable for not warning consumers about the nicotine and other potentially dangerous ingredients contained in its vaporizer oils. Juul and other e-cig brands have been steadily rising in popularity with kids and teens for years, and millions of middle- and high-school-age children have used these products at least once.
Juul contains more nicotine than most other e-cigarettes. Consuming this chemical can quickly cause a lifelong addiction and has been shown to have a variety of negative health effects, including:
- Negatively affecting blood pressure and blood sugar levels
- Promoting plaque buildup on artery walls, a potential cause of heart disease
- Causing ulcers
- Inducing psychological symptoms
- Affecting mood
Nicotine addiction in and of itself is both harmful and costly. It creates a compulsion to keep purchasing and consuming expensive products that are dangerous to health, and it causes physical and mental pain whenever a user tries to break the addiction.
Children and teenagers are a lot more susceptible to forming an addiction because of their still-developing brains and are therefore a lot more likely to succumb to a nicotine addiction after even a short period of e-cigarette use. Juul may have not done enough to prevent non-adults from using its products and may have knowingly advertised to children and teens.
ARE YOU ELIGIBLE FOR THIS LAWSUIT?
If you or a loved one used Juul prior to November 2018 and before turning 18 years of age, you may be eligible for compensation. Millions of non-adults may have formed a lifelong addiction and suffered other ill health effects due to their use of Juul, and if you or someone you know is one of them, we want to represent you.
