Compensation for Vaping Injuries
If you know that your innocent teenage child has been vaping, it is a good idea to seek the advice of licensed physicians and a licensed vaping injury lawyer in DC, MD, or VA. Even if your child is not experiencing any negative side effects of vaping, the sooner you seek help the sooner you may be able to protect your child’s health and rights.
Your child and your family may be entitled to compensation for expenses related to your child’s injury. Whether your child needs medical care now or may just need it in the future if problems that are caused by vaping should arise, this is not something that your child and/or your family should not suffer financial hardships for. If your child is addicted to vaping and unable to quit on their own, there are programs and therapies that may be able to help them. The party or parties that caused this addiction by providing a dangerous product to your minor child should be financially responsible for any health, addiction, or psychological, problems their product caused.

It is bad enough that one or more party sold or provided vaping products to your underage child but many have alleged that vaping companies deliberately targeted marketing towards minors. Things such as the candy-like flavors for vapes, attractive packaging and aggressive social media campaigns, are now being pointed to as a key reason why so many children and teens are now addicted to vaping.
