Juul Lawsuits

The market for vaping and e-cigarette products has exploded in recent years, and the impact on consumers is becoming more and more troubling with each passing day. Through deceptive marketing tactics and the spread of misinformation, major vaping companies like Juul have been able to convince smokers that e-cigarettes and other vaping devices are a safe alternative to traditional cigarettes and tobacco products. Younger consumers, especially teenagers, have been specifically targeted by these companies to lure them into using e-cigarette products. 

The Law Office of Brian Holland P.A. is proud to work with individuals and families that have been victimized by the predatory nature of major e-cigarette companies like Juul. If you or someone you know has become addicted to a Juul product, you deserve to have an experienced legal advocate working to help you hold these e-cigarette manufacturers responsible.

Through reliable legal counsel and exceptional litigation tactics, Attorney Brian Holland can help you pursue compensation that can cover medical expenses, lost wages, and any pain and suffering caused by the use of harmful Juul products. 

The Truth About Juul E-Cigarettes

Juul Labs has been creating and selling e-cigarettes that resemble a small USB thumb drive. They are often marketed as a flavorful and healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes and tobacco products, leading many consumers to believe that Juul products are less harmful. The reality is that e-cigarettes are just as harmful as traditional cigarettes, and in some cases, a single Juul pod can carry as much nicotine as an entire pack of cigarettes, according to a citation from Juul Labs. 

As of September of 2018, Juul Labs owned 72% of the market share for e-cigarettes in the U.S. Its widespread use by teens across the country has triggered significant public concern and multiple investigations by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

A Growing Issue Among Teens

Juul products have become increasingly popular among teens and adolescents. A study on over 13,000 Americans was performed in October of 2018 to understand the prevalence of Juul use and identify demographic correlations among youth and young adults in the U.S. Some of the startling statistics that were found include:

  • 9.5% of teenagers aged 15-17 currently use Juul products
  • 11% of young adults aged 18-21 currently use Juul products
  • Teenagers aged 15-17 are 16 times more likely to use Juul products that adults aged 25-34
  • Juul use in middle schools continues to rise, with one in five students between the ages of 12 and 17 reporting the use of a Juul product in school. 

The perception and fundamental understanding of the health risks involved with vaping and e-cigarette use appear to be misguided as well. A 2015 Stanford University study analyzing the adolescent perception of risks and benefits of conventional cigarettes versus e-cigarettes found that many teens believe that e-cigarettes do not contain nicotine, only water vapor. Additionally, a 2017 Truth Initiative survey found that 63% of teens and young adults did not understand that the Juul products they were using always contained nicotine. 

Health Risks Associated With E-Cigarette Use

Despite the misconception that vaping and e-cigarette use is a safe alternative to traditional smoking, the data remains clear: regular vaping and e-cigarette use is extremely harmful to your health. Every Juul pod contains highly-addictive concentrations of nicotine. Juul Labs does not manufacture any nicotine-free pods for consumer consumption. 

These pods often come with a wide selection of sweet flavors intended to mask the nicotine and other toxic chemicals that have been linked to a variety of health complications and lung conditions. Some of the most common harmful effects that can be caused by Juul products include:

  • Lung conditions and complications with breathing
  • Enlargement of the aorta
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Increased risk of blood clots
  • Increased risk of stroke
  • Blood restriction to the brain
  • Increased risk of pneumonia and diabetes
  • Gastrointestinal issues and peptic ulcers
