E-Cigarette Nicotine Poisoning Lawsuit Help

Today, many smokers and non-smokers are turning to E-cigarettes, commonly known as “vapes”, as an alternative to cigarettes. These nicotine devices are gaining popularity so quickly that many users are not properly informed of the risks of this product, including the deadly risks the liquid nicotine refills (“e-juice”) pose to the health of children.

E-cigarette Nicotine Poisoning in Young Children Are On the Rise, Study Says

According to a study of calls to the National Poison Data System published in the journal Pediatrics, the number of children under 6 who suffered nicotine poisoning from drinking or exposure to e-juice for e-cigarettes rose by nearly 1,500% between 2013 and 2015. This count includes one death of a 1-year-old child, who died from liquid nicotine poisoning in December 2014.

Children Are Easily Attracted To The Colorful Bottles and Flavors of E-juice

As CDC Director Tom Frieden, M.D., M.P.H. explains, the use “of these products is skyrocketing and these poisonings will continue. E-cigarette liquids [e-juice] as currently sold are a threat to small children because they are not required to be childproof, and they come in candy and fruit flavors that are appealing to children.”
