Los Angeles Juul Charger Explosions Injury Attorney
There has been a rash of e-cigarette injuries due to charger fires and explosions. E-cigarette devices are charged with a typical USB charger, but Juul and other vape devices are only designed to be used with compatible chargers. If an e-cigarette explodes while charging or being used due to a defective charger, serious burn injuries can occur. If you or a loved one has been injured by Juul charger explosions, consult an experienced Juul lawsuit attorney.

How do electronic cigarettes work?
Electronic cigarettes are handheld, battery-powered devices that provide users with a similar sensation to smoking tobacco products without the harmful health risks, or so vape manufacturers like Juul claim. Instead of burning tobacco leaves, e-cigarettes heat a liquid consisting of nicotine, propylene glycol, and flavoring. The liquid forms a vapor which the user inhales. Most electronic cigarettes are powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, and the chargers are similar to USB devices. However, defects in the charger, using an incompatible charging, or leaving a charging e-cigarette unattended can result in fires, explosions, property damage, and serious personal injuries.
Why are electronic cigarettes dangerous?
Juul and other vape devices are susceptible to explosions due to short circuits, defective chargers, overcharged batteries, and the use of improper chargers. Electronic cigarettes can explode while the device is being charged or when the user is vaping. A charger that explodes during use can cause catastrophic injuries to the face, mouth, jaw, eyes, and hands. Injury victims typically require ongoing medical care, reconstructive surgery, and often sustain permanent scarring and disfigurement.
The lingering pain and suffering and mounting medical expenses can become an overwhelming burden not only for the victim, but for loved ones as well. The legal team at J&Y is here to help lift that burden with a powerful combination of legal knowledge and trial experience. While we have the ability to reach negotiated settlements in Juul injury claims, we are fully prepared to litigate your case. Above all, we are committed to obtaining the maximum compensation you deserve.
How to Avoid an E-Cigarette Explosion or Charger Explosions
While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finally began regulating electronic cigarettes in 2016, these devices continue to pose a risk of fires and explosions caused by defective chargers. It is worth noting that manufacturers have always had an obligation to provide users with warnings about the proper use and potential dangers of vape devices. A manufacturer that fails to do so or that provides a defective e-cigarette to the public that causes personal injuries can be held liable in a product liability suit.
That being said, users can minimize the risk of injury from e-cigarette explosions. Obviously, an e-cigarette should only be charged with a compatible charger and should not be left unattended while charging. Electronic cigarettes should not be plugged into a computer or similar electronic device because the charger may overheat.
If your e-cigarette charger has exploded, immediately seek medical attention. Once you have begun recovering, contact the personal injury attorneys at J&Y Law. We will conduct a thorough investigation to understand the cause of the explosion, determine whether you have a valid claim, and explore all your options for obtaining compensation.
