used, or stored in a user’s pocket, resulting in serious

What Is a Vaporizer, and How Can They Explode?
E-cigarettes and vaporizers are small, battery-powered nicotine delivery
systems that produce a heated vapor from a flavored solution which mimics
the sensation of traditional tobacco smoking. The energy used to produce
this heat is obtained from a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that is
housed within the devices. In the event that these batteries should overheat,
they can combust during use.
Overheating can be caused by any of the following:
- Overcharging of the battery
- Punctured batteries
- External heat sources
- Internal short circuiting
- Internal cell fault
- Mismatched batteries and chargers
Despite their popularity, electronic smoking devices are currently not
regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. This means that unsafe
products may be being released to the public without their knowledge.
If you have been seriously burned by your vaporizer or e-cigarette, you
may be able to file a legal claim against the device’s manufacturer
in pursuit of compensation for your resulting medical bills, pain and
suffering, lost wages, reduced quality of life, and emotional distress.
Our firm’s attorneys can review the exact cause of your injuries
and determine the most appropriate course of action to pursue.
