The issue that causes vape pens and e-cigs to explode is these devices’ use of lithium-ion batteries.
These batteries – which are often cheaply made by Chinese manufacturers – have been known to overheat and then explode, often causing severe burns and sending shrapnel flying through the air. In a report assessing the dangers of e-cig and vape pen explosions, the U.S. Fire Administration noted that the shape of e-cigs and vape pens means that battery explosions essentially turn them into “flaming rockets” with the potential to cause severe injuries to vapers and others in the vicinity.
But, e-cigs are not just exploding while users are vaping. There have also been numerous reports of e-cigs and vape pens exploding in people’s pockets and, in some cases, exploding immediately upon activation after installing a new lithium-ion battery. In other words, there is no single activity that links these explosions together. Instead, it appears that explosions can happen at virtually any time – whenever their lithium-ion batteries happen to fail. Since such explosions cannot be predicted, they can cause a range of injuries, from minor to serious. Our experienced Atlanta vape pen explosion attorneys can help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
What Are the Most Common Vape Pen and E-Cig Explosion Injuries?
Due to the extreme force and heat behind many of these explosions, victims have been known to suffer a wide range of serious injuries. One of the most common – and most serious – risks linked to e-cig and vape pen explosions is the risk for severe burns. In many cases, victims have been treated for third-degree burns on their faces and other parts of their bodies, resulting in multiple skin grafts and weeks, if not months, of inpatient treatment at the hospital.
Among the types of injuries linked to e-cig and vape pen explosions are:
- Cracked teeth
- Jaw fractures
- Severe lacerations
- Soft tissue injuries
If you have been injured, you already know the devastating effects that these types of injuries can cause. Medical bills, missed time from work, disfigurement, enduring pain – these are just the beginning. As the victim of an e-cig or vape pen explosion, you could be facing a lifetime of physical pain and emotional harm.
What Should I Do if I Have Been Injured in an E-Cig or Vape Pen Explosion?
If you have suffered third-degree burns or other injuries in an e-cig or vape pen explosion, what should you do? How can you hold the responsible parties accountable? How can you make sure that you have the money you need to move on with your life?
After any type of accident, there are several steps involved in pursuing a claim for financial compensation. You need to take action promptly, and the best way to protect your rights and avoid all-too-common mistakes is to speak with an experienced injury attorney as soon as possible. Such cases require extensive experience in product liability and negligence-based personal injury claims. To make sure that you secure maximum compensation, you need an injury attorney who is fully prepared to take your case to trial. While most claims settle, insurance companies and defense lawyers know when an injury victim’s lawyer isn’t prepared to go to court, and they will use this as leverage to negotiate a reduced settlement.
