JUUL E-Cigarette Lawsuits – Understanding the Problem
JUUL Labs has been selling liquid nicotine products to the general public since 2015. Over the years, it has grown to become the most popular e-cigarette brand in the United States – making up more than 70 percent of the market.
So, why are so many law firms and governmental agencies queuing up to file lawsuits against this highly successful company? Though every suit is unique, the vast majority are being filed for one of the following reasons:
Claims of Being Safer Than Tobacco Products
Over the years, big tobacco has spent billions of dollars attempting to convince the American public that their products are not harmful. Their efforts have been relatively unsuccessful. Just about everyone understands the health risks associated with traditional cigarettes.
Of course, by the time people learn about the dangers of smoking, they are often already addicted to nicotine. So, instead of trying to kick the habit entirely, they sometimes search for safer methods of getting their nicotine hit. JUUL Labs promised them exactly that.
In their marketing materials, the makers of the JUUL pod regularly claimed that their products were much less harmful than those on offer from traditional cigarette companies. These claims were not true.
During the years the JUUL vape pen has been on the market, the Food and Drug Administration has received countless reports of users suffering from issues like:
- Joint pain
- Blood clots
- Lung disease
- Strokes, and
It is because of these side effects and health concerns that many people are filing suit against JUUL Labs.
Targeting Products at High School Students
When a traditional tobacco company wants to market its products, it has to adhere to strict rules and regulations that govern:
- Where it can advertise
- Who it can advertise to
- What information it can include in its ads
- What claims its ads can make, and
- How its ads can portray its products.
When JUUL first entered the market, the guidelines for marketing its products were quite a bit less clear. As such, the company regularly chose to portray young people using its pods while spending time with friends in its ads. This decision caused many parents to believe that JUUL was targeting its liquid nicotine products at teenagers.
Its advertisements are not the only evidence that people cite when alleging that JUUL was trying to convince minors to use its devices. The fact that the company pushed candy-like flavors such as mint and creme is also frequently mentioned in lawsuits.
Do you believe you may have a valid legal claim against JUUL Labs? Then please reach out to the experienced attorneys here at Lattof & Lattof, PC, in Mobile. We would be more than happy to review your case and assist you with the process of fighting for compensation.
Who Can File a Lawsuit Against JUUL Labs?

A significant number of people who developed a nicotine addiction after using JUUL vape pens are fighting for compensation from the company. They hope to recover enough compensation to cover their addiction treatment.

Compensation Available in JUUL Vape Pen Lawsuits
At the moment, hundreds of JUUL vape pen lawsuits are continuing to work their way through the legal system in jurisdictions across the United States. Lawyers are paying particularly close attention to the Northern District of California, where more than 300 suits have been consolidated into a multi-district litigation (MDL).
The outcomes of the cases being processed in California and across the nation are almost certain to have a huge impact on the amount of financial restitution that is available to victims when they file suit. If the judges in those cases award sizable compensation checks to the plaintiffs, other courts are likely to follow suit when presented with similar lawsuits.
At the law firm of Lattof & Lattof, PC, we expect that most people who are negatively impacted by JUUL Labs products will be able to claim compensation for their:
- Medical bills
- Addiction treatment
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity, and more.
Some may even be eligible to recover punitive damages from JUUL.
