Pennsylvania JUUL Lawsuit Attorneys
Fighting for the Health of Our Nation’s Young People
Tobacco cigarette use has waned drastically in recent decades, largely due to the fact that the public is aware of the dangers of smoking. Use of e-cigarettes, also called vaping, has surged in popularity since vaping companies, like JUUL, burst on the scene. Since the company launched in 2015, JUUL, like other e-cigarette companies, has aggressively marketed toward young people, with eye-catching social media posts and JUUL-sponsored parties geared to a young crowd.
It has been reported that public health officials have expressed alarm that JUUL Labs, the creators or JUUL e-cigarettes, has downplayed or outright denied the dangers associated with vaping nicotine. Although a high concentration of nicotine is undoubtedly harmful, particularly for the developing brain.
Filing a JUUL Lawsuit
At Metzger Wickersham, our attorneys intend to hold JUUL and other e-cigarette companies accountable for their deceptive, illegal marketing practices, and the harm these vapes have caused to young people.
You may be eligible for compensation if the following applies to your JUUL-related addiction or JUUL-related injury:
- You became addicted to nicotine before turning 26 years old and were not previously using nicotine at any time before JUUL use, or
- You were younger than 35 years old at the time of a JUUL-related injury (injuries include but are not limited to: nicotine poisoning, seizures, strokes, heart attacks or other heart problems, lung/respiratory problems, mental health/behavioral problems, suicidal thoughts/attempt, complications during pregnancy, or birth defects)
- You did not use cannabis daily or weekly before use of JUUL
- You did not use illegal drugs, except cannabis, at any time before use of JUUL
About JUUL E-Cigarettes
JUUL Labs creates and sell vapes, which are small and shaped like a USB thumb drive. While they were marketed as a safer alternative to smoking, this claim has come under fire. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent a harsh warning to JUUL Labs in August 2019, demanding that they substantiate or recant their claim that their vapes are a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes. The FDA has stated that JUUL executives cynically courted the nation’s youth and falsely advertised their products were effective for smoking cessation, a claim they have never substantiated. In September 2019, public health professionals from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced they launched a full-scale investigation to determine whether e-cigarettes are indeed causing physical and/or psychological harm to users.
