Seeking Justice: E-Cigarette Vape Pen Fires Cause Injuries

You might be familiar with e-cigarettes, also known as electronic cigarettes or vapes, that people use to inhale flavored smoke and tobacco. There have been a growing number of cases where vape pen fires have caused harm to people. These so-called “exploding vapes” injuries can be devastating and painful, particularly if the vape pen catches fire in a pocket. We want to make sure you’re aware of what to do if you or someone you know experiences such an accident.

E-cigarettes are electronic devices, similar to smartphones or tablets. Inside them, there’s a battery that powers everything. But sometimes, these batteries can malfunction and lead to fires.

The most disturbing part of these incidents is that fires can occur without warning. Because of the nature of e-cigarettes, users typically have them on their person, in their purse, or otherwise nearby. The risk of injury is high.

If you or someone you know gets injured due to an e-cigarette fire, you might have the right to take legal action against the manufacturers or sellers of the e-cigarette.

Our OnderLaw personal injury team specializes in helping people who have been harmed in accidents, like those involving e-cigarette fires. We believe in holding companies accountable for producing and selling dangerous products. Our mission is to fight for justice and seek compensation for those who have suffered injuries, but that’s not all. We’re also here to hold corporations accountable. When they profit from products that harm people, we use the court system to force them to change the way they do business.

How Much is My Vape Pen Fire Worth?

Compensation is a form of financial assistance that can help cover expenses such as medical bills resulting from your injuries, or even emotional distress caused by the accident. It’s important to understand that the purpose of compensation is not to make up for what happened, but it can provide some relief during challenging times.

Every case is different, and it would be irresponsible and unethical of us to estimate how much you might receive in an e-cigarette lawsuit, but we can tell you that we will fight for every penny allowable by law.

How Does an E-Cigarette Lawsuit Work?

When you reach out to OnderLaw, we will listen to your story and ensure you understand your rights. Our experienced lawyers will guide you through the legal process, offering support every step of the way. Remember, you’re not alone in this fight!

These types of litigations can be tried one of three ways:

  1. As a personal injury lawsuit. This means that a civil lawsuit is filed in a local court for your vape pen fire injuries, and it is tried, either before a judge or before a jury. Because there are an increasing number of incidents in which e-cig fires cause injuries, this scenario is probably not likely.
  2. As a class action lawsuit. Class actions are a type of lawsuit in which one claim is filed and many plaintiffs with similar injuries or harm are added. Each plaintiff is part of what is called a class, and if they win, each person in the class is awarded similar damages.
  3. As a mass tort lawsuit. When many people are injured by the same product, they are often allowed to file individual lawsuits that are handled in the same court. This allows each plaintiff’s case to stand on its own, but also reduces the number of court procedures and the amount of court resources needed to take these cases to trial.
