JUUL Health Risks

Juul SmokeIn a recent warning, the U.S. Surgeon General reported that between 2011 and 2015, e-cigarette use in high school students rose 900 percent and in 2018, 20.8% of high school students used e-cigarettes. Of all e-cigarettes on the market JUUL is the most popular, seeing a 600% increase in sales during 2016-2017 and making up nearly 60% of the market thanks in part to its sleek design and flavored liquid cartridges. The cartridges contain a nicotine e-liquid formula that comes in various flavors appealing to young people.

How the JUUL works - When a user inhales on the device a heating mechanism is triggered. The formula in the cartridge is heated until vaporized and the vapors are then inhaled by the user. Unfortunately, the vapors in JUUL devices also contain nicotine at levels higher than any other e-cigarette on the market.

High levels of nicotine - At 5% nicotine by volume, a JUUL cartridge, or pod, can have over twice as much nicotine as other competitors’ cartridges. The amount of nicotine in one JUUL cartridge is equivalent to a pack of cigarettes and with young people often using multiple cartridges in one sitting, the nicotine levels entering the body are extreme.

Resembling a USB drive, a JUUL can be easily hidden by students from teachers and administrators. The odorless vapor can be inhaled and exhaled in a matter of seconds with no trace. “JUULing” has become extremely popular in schools across the country. While cigarette smoking in young people has been in steady decline, vaping and particularly JUUL usage is on the rise exposing young people to dangerous levels of nicotine.

Side effects of vaporized nicotine - Nicotine is associated with increased heart rate and elevated blood pressure. Long-term exposure has been linked with stroke and heart disease. There are also studies that link nicotine use to cancers. Specific to young people, nicotine can have serious effects on a developing brain which continues to develop until around age 25. Medical professionals believe that the highly addictive nature of nicotine has an even greater impact on adolescents and young adults than on adults. Recent reports show that nicotine can make the brain more susceptible to other addictions by elevating dopamine levels which can increase appetite for other reward-seeking behaviors like drinking, drug use and gambling.

Financial Help

Financial Consequences of Personal Injury

  • The financial burdens resulting from personal injury can be substantial and include the costs of hospitalization, surgery, doctors, rehabilitation, physical and occupational therapy, travel, prescription medications and other items. In addition, there is likely pain and suffering and oftentimes a loss of current and future income, of family and spousal consortium, and of the enjoyment of pre-injury activities and mobility. In cases of severe and/or permanent injury, the future costs of care, treatment, maintenance and support can be overwhelming.
  • Insurance may only go so far in covering these costs and losses. Legal action may be the only way to protect yourself and your family to obtain adequate moneys to address your needs and secure your and your family's future.
Protect your Rights

Protect Your Rights

  • Personal injury claims, including those for product liability and negligence, are subject to various statutes of limitation. These laws limit the amount of time within which a claim for monetary damages may be brought against the company or person responsible for the injuries. Consequently, acting promptly to protect your, or a loved one's, legal claims and rights is imperative.
  • Statutes of limitation vary from state to state. Generally, they can begin to run from either the date of your injury or the date you first discovered that the injury may have been caused by a defective product. These are important distinctions that may impact your legal rights.
  • If you or a loved one suffered a drug or medical device injury or a type of personal injury claim that we are investigating, we welcome the opportunity to talk with you.
