    E-Cigarette and Vape Lawsuit Overview

    Uplift Legal Funding now offers lawsuit loans on e-cigarette explosion cases.

    A vape, also known as an e-cigarette, offers nicotine or various marijuana products through an electronic device and produces heated vapor resembling smoke. The primary difference between e-cigarettes and regular cigarettes is vaporization vs. combustion.

    On the market since 2007, vapes and e-cigarettes have risen in popularity. Over 2.5 million people in the United States are using them. However, these devices can be dangerous. If you were seriously burned due to an exploding e-cigarette or vape, you can be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer. This compensation can cover any damages, which include the following:

    Uplift Legal Funding provides legal funding on filed e-cigarette or vaporizer lawsuits where at least one defendant has accepted liability, or an expert report supports liability.

    Vape and E-Cigarette Explosion Causes

    Vapes and e-cigarettes incorporate a heating component that vaporizes its liquid or “juice.” Most of these devices have a timing feature in order to prevent overheating. They typically use a cylindrical lithium-ion battery to generate heat. These batteries hold a flammable or combustible liquid electrolyte. Overheating (due to the following) can cause the electrolyte to explode.

    • overcharged battery
    • puncture of the device
    • external heat
    • a short circuit
    • deficient cell

    Vape and E-Cigarette Lawsuits

    According to the U.S. Fire Administration, there were 25 reported explosions and fire-related incidents from e-cigarettes between 2009 and 2014.

    Plaintiffs can often seek compensation from defendant manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and retailers.

    Here are just a few later incidents of the explosive devices:

    • January 2016 in Jackson County, Indiana – A truck driver lost control of his vehicle when his e-cigarette caught on fire. He suffered facial injuries.
    • November 2015 in Colorado Springs, CO – A vape exploded in a man’s face, causing a broken neck, facial fractures, burns to his mouth, and shattered teeth.
    • October 2015 in Naples, Florida – A vape exploded, causing a man’s face and neck to be burned, placing him in a medically induced coma.
    • October 2015 in Bakersfield, California – After an e-cigarette blew up in a man’s face, damaging his face and hands.
    • September 2015 in Cobb County, Georgia – An e-cigarette explosion in a man’s face resulted in burns to his hand and a fractured neck and finger, and burns to his cornea. He also suffered first-degree burns on his chest and face.
    • February 2015 in Ramona, California – A man suffered facial burns and lacerations on his face after a vape exploded.
    • July 2013 in Corona, California – The e-cigarette charging in the car resulted in a “blow torch” fire. The victim suffered 2nd-degree burns on the upper thighs and lower buttocks.
    • June 2013 in Sherman, Texas – A man charged his e-cigarette for 2 hours, causing it to explode. He suffered 2nd and 3rd-degree burns on his hand and smoke inhalation.
    • March 2013 in Corona, California – Jennifer Ries and her husband were on their way to the airport when the e-cigarette charger shot out hot metal, igniting her dress. Even though her husband put out the flames, she suffered second-degree burns on her buttocks, thighs, and hand. Following a six-day trial, the jury awarded her $1.9 million in a lawsuit against VapCigs, the distributor of the e-cigarette and charger.
    • February 2012 in Niceville, Florida – An e-cigarette explosion in the mouth caused severe burns and lost teeth.
    • November 2011 in Greely, Colorado – After an e-cigarette exploded in his face, a man had to be hospitalized for 8 days.

    This string of explosive and flammable incidents led the U.S. Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration to ban passengers and crewmembers from carrying battery-powered portable electronic smoking devices (e.g. e-cigarettes, e-cigs, e-cigars, e-pipes, personal vaporizers, electronic nicotine delivery systems) aboard aircraft.
