JUUL Lawsuit Attorneys

If your child has become addicted to JUUL, an electronic nicotine delivery system, PW is here to help.

With marketing targeted specifically at children and teens, packaging meant to be easily concealed, and an extremely addictive composition, JUUL has become a dangerous health concern for our youth. The hazard presented by JUUL smoking is so concerning that the U.S. General Surgeon has labeled e-cigarettes a "national epidemic" among teens.

JUUL is a brand of e-cigarette, an electronic nicotine delivery system that vaporizes a liquid for inhalation. This process is also known as vaping. The liquid used is contained in replaceable cartridges called pods, which come in a variety of flavors. JUUL is known for its USB (flash drive) shape, which makes it easy to conceal and use in public places like schools.

The liquid used in JUUL pods contain nicotine salts from tobacco leaves. Just one pod contains as much nicotine as an entire pack of cigarettes. When the vapor from the JUUL is inhaled, nicotine is then absorbed at the same rate as a regular cigarette.

With JUUL, the vapor can be smoother than the harsh irritants associated with regular cigarettes, leading the smoker to think it's a healthier alternative. This is not the case at all and with nearly double the amount of nicotine concentrate of other e-cigarettes on the market, JUUL presents a significantly increased risk of addiction.

Although it's marketed as a safer option than smoking, JUUL usage is dangerous and addicting. The long-term effects of JUUL use aren't known. Studies are beginning to show short-term effects such as rapid deterioration of vascular function, increased heart rate, and elevated blood pressure. JUUL has also been linked to seizures and strokes, prompting the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to issue a warning.

The nicotine JUUL contains is a known carcinogen and can affect the organs, as well as harm brain development in children and teens. Given its high nicotine content, the addictive nature of JUUL combined with its adverse health effects makes it extremely dangerous.
