With the rapidly increasing rise in the popularity of e-cigarettes, there has come with it a need for a good e-cigarette law firm Virginia residents can rely on.
E-cigarettes are also known as vapes and cigarette pens. “Smoking” an e-cigarette is often referred to as vaping because what is inhaled and exhaled is a vapor. This vapor is created by a small battery in the cigarette that heats up a vial of nicotine solution until it turns into a gas, otherwise known as a vapor.

People are getting injured while using e-cigarettes and people have been getting ill because of them even though e-cigarettes have been touted as a healthier alternative to traditional cigarette smoking. Many smokers have made conscious decisions to use e-cigarettes even though they prefer their good old fashioned smokes, because they have been led to believe that they will incur little to no harm to themselves when using e-cigarettes. Because of this, many people have sought compensation for their injuries or illnesses through product liability lawsuits. There have even been class action lawsuits against e-cigarette companies.

There are many rules and regulations that protect consumers in the United States from faulty and defective products. Sometimes though, when a new technology is introduced it does not fall under the same scrutiny as more known products. E-cigarettes seem to fall into this category because there were no rules or regulations that prohibited minors from purchasing and consuming e-cigarettes until 2016. As well, e-cigarettes are not required to come with child safety features, instructions for safe use, or warnings of dangers- even though most products that are licensed to be sold in the United States have to have these things when the product has a potential to harm or endanger a consumer.
If you think that you or someone close to you may be in need of an e-cigarette law firm Virginia product liability victims and their families can recommend, contact the compassionate team at Cohen & Cohen, today.
