JUUL Lawsuit in West Virginia and Additional Injury

While smoking is seriously injurious to health, there are many teenagers and adults who love vaping e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes or e-cigs are vaping products. They look like cigarettes, pens, USB drives, and so on. These devices carry nicotine in a liquid with some added flavors. This liquid is heated with the use of a battery and heating coil. This liquid turns into a vapor that can be inhaled. That is why these are called vaping products.

JUUL is the most common form of e-cigarette that is often used by many. This looks like a cigarette, pen, USB flash drive, and so on. This device contains a dangerously high level of nicotine. A single JUUL contains the nicotine of the entire packet of a traditional cigarette. Also, these JUUL pods come with a much higher concentrated amount of nicotine than a cigarette. This type of nicotine is absorbed by the body more.

The JUUL lawsuits claim that the manufacturing company JUUL knew about the fact about concentrated nicotine and how harmful it can be and yet they marketed the product deceptively among teenagers and young adults leading them to the exposure of more risks from concentrated nicotine.

If you or your loved ones have been using JUUL products and now dealing with addiction, then come to us at Logue Law Group. Our West Virginia JUUL lawyer is here to help you with your claim.

Things to Know About JUUL Lawsuit

Many government agencies as well as many lawsuits have accused JUUL of deceptive marketing and targeting teenagers and young adults while exposing them to serious nicotine addiction. In 2017 and 2018, when JUUL first started its marketing campaign, they released advertisements where young adult people were shown smoking and enjoying JUUL products in various settings. They have also used social media for creating the market buzz with the introduction of the flavors like mint, crème, and fruit.

The lawsuit claims that the JUUL products are designed in a portable manner so that they can be carried easily in the palm. As the vapor doesn’t create any odor, people can keep vaping anywhere. The device delivers nicotine in an expedited manner, causing more problems for the one who is using. The deceptive marketing was targeted so that teenagers find JUUL products as safe alternatives to the cigarette.

The JUUL marketing was very successful resulting in 3.6 million middle and high school kids were using e-cigarettes in 2018 while the smoking rate dropped 3.6% in the same year. More and more young people found this to be their preferred choice.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"I had hired Mr Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before i had met her for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her. My mistake to hire him for her but her blessing. I know she didn’t thank you enough so allow me to for her. Very highly recommend Mr. Logue.” A.C.
★★★★★
I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped for. Sean and his team worked hard for me. They're the best! Anonymous
★★★★★
After the salesmen told me my gun application "wouldn't be a problem," I was charged with an illegal attempt to posses a firearm. Sean Logue has a good relationship with the DA, but still pushed them to have a trial and I was found not guilty of the felony charge. Sean is a tough and smart lawyer who knows his way around the courtrooms. Anonymous
