Hundreds of individuals across the nation are filing lawsuits against JUUL and sometimes other vaping companies for damages and losses. Two major types of lawsuits are being filed. One type of lawsuit involves parents of children and young adults who became addicted to JUUL and vaping devices when they were underage. The other type of lawsuit centers around vaping-related lung illnesses that have impacted hundreds across the nation, with new cases being reported. The Centers for Disease Control reports that there are currently 805 reported cases of vaping-related lung illnesses in the U.S. This illness is under investigation, but it still isn’t entirely clear why some people are getting sick from using vaping devices. The CDC has issued a recommendation that individuals refrain “from using e-cigarette, or vaping, products…” until it can learn more about the causes of this mysterious illness.

JUUL Labs, Inc. and Youth Nicotine Addiction in Houston, Texas
Blizzard Law, PLLC is a law firm in Houston, Texas, that represents the parents of children who may have become addicted to vaping devices, e-cigarettes, and JUUL products. If your children have used flavored vaping devices, e-cigarettes, or JUUL products, consider reaching out to Blizzard Law, PLLC, today. Our Houston, Texas, attorneys can review your case and provide you with a road map forward. As the CDC and FDA report on the risks that these products pose, more parents have expressed concern about their children’s use of vaping devices, JUUL products, and e-cigarettes.
Parents of teens who became addicted to JUUL and young adults across the nation have filed dozens of lawsuits against JUUL Labs, Inc. and other companies selling vaping devices and e-cigarettes. Blizzard Law, PLLC is a law firm in Houston, Texas, currently taking cases to assist youth and their parents who became addicted to JUUL when they were underage.
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration recently issued a warning to JUUL Labs, Inc. for potentially marketing JUUL products to youth and to children in schools. The FDA is requesting additional information from JUUL Labs, Inc. regarding its practices of marketing its products to children and youth. Furthermore, the FDA is asking JUUL Labs, Inc. to provide additional information about why it marketed its tobacco products as lower-risk than cigarettes. The FDA has expressed concern that JUUL claimed that its tobacco products were safer than traditional cigarettes, though the company has yet to provide scientific evidence to support this claim. The concern is that many children and youths may have tried JUUL vaping devices or e-cigarettes under the belief that these devices were “safe” or “safer than cigarettes.” The FDA is also investigating whether JUUL sold its products with flavors that would appeal to kids and a younger demographic.
Of particular concern, in the FDA’s warning letter, is a presentation that JUUL made in schools where youth were reportedly told that JUUL “was much safer than cigarettes,” “totally safe,” and “a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes.” This is concerning because JUUL appears to appeal to teens. According to Time Magazine, as many as 30% of teenagers admit to having vaped or having used a JUUL device in the past year. While JUUL products are not the only vaping product or e-cigarette on the market, JUUL accounts for a large percentage of the vaping market.
Has your child become addicted to JUUL products or vaping devices? Do you believe your child is addicted to e-cigarettes, JUUL products, or vaping devices? Did your child or teen ever use flavored e-cigarettes? Blizzard Law, PLLC is a law firm in Houston, Texas, who is taking cases where teens and children have become addicted to nicotine or products that contained nicotine, particularly JUUL products and flavored vaping devices or flavored e-cigarettes. Many parents across the country are concerned about their teen’s vaping or teen’s e-cigarette use. If you are concerned, consider speaking to Blizzard Law, PLLC. We can review your case and help you understand whether you can take further steps.
Are You Concerned About Your Teen’s Vaping?
The Centers for Disease Control notes that e-cigarettes are unsafe for teens, children, and young adults. Vaping devices like JUUL contain nicotine and, in some cases, high levels of nicotine, which is a highly addictive substance. While e-cigarettes or vaping devices were sometimes claimed to be safer alternatives to cigarette smoke, vaping smoke contains nicotine and other substances which can be potentially harmful or carcinogenic. The CDC further reports that nicotine use among adolescents can be particularly harmful because youth brains continue to develop until around age 25. The CDC notes that the use of nicotine can impact parts of the brain that controls “attention, learning, mood, and impulse control.” There is also an increased risk that children who use JUUL or vaping devices could be at an increased risk of becoming addicted to drugs or other substances and there is an increased risk that these children might become addicted to cigarettes in the future.
Vaping devices and e-cigarettes can pose health risks. The aerosol in vaping devices and e-cigarettes contains nicotine, fine particles, flavorings, cancer-causing chemicals, heavy metals, and other potentially volatile substances. Parents who are concerned about their teens vaping and e-cigarette use have reason to be concerned.
If you believe your teen is using vaping products or e-cigarettes and you are concerned about your teen’s nicotine addiction or habit, you are not alone. JUUL and other e-cigarette and vaping companies have come under fire for selling flavored vaping products and for potentially using tactics that might have targeted teens and youth. If your child is addicted to JUUL or became addicted to JUUL or other vaping products while still underage, you may have the right to seek damages under the law. Blizzard Law, PLLC is a law firm in Houston, Texas, who is taking cases where parents believe their children may have developed an addiction to JUUL or vaping products and cases where teens became addicted to nicotine due to using flavored vaping devices.
Vaping and Lung Disease
A mysterious lung disease has left 805 people sick across the nation and has even resulted in deaths. It isn’t yet clear why people are falling ill. Some believe that vaping products modified to contain THC may be partially to blame for the illnesses, though the CDC continues to investigate new cases. The symptoms of vaping-related lung illness include coughing, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, fever, and abdominal pain. If you or someone you love becomes ill after using a vaping device or JUUL, consider seeking medical attention.
