E-cigarettes are widely marketed as a safe alternative to traditional cigarette smoking, but studies have found that some products actually contain toxic cancer-causing chemicals like formaldehyde.

E-Cigarette Class Action Lawsuit Information
In February 2014, Courthouse News reported that an e-cigarette class action lawsuit was filed in California against NJOY. The plaintiff, Eric McGovern, claims that NJOY uses deceptive advertising practices to persuade people that e-cigarettes are harmless.
Studies have found that some e-cigarettes include carcinogenic chemicals like formaldehyde. Furthermore, McGovern alleges that NJOY avoids federal regulation by stating that it is not a smoking-cessation device, while still implying that it can help smokers quit.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our Product Liability Litigation Group is filing individual lawsuits instead of an e-cigarette class action.

About Class Actions
Although class actions have already been filed, they are not intended to provide compensation for people who were injured by e-cigarettes — they are seeking compensation on behalf of tens of thousands of people who purchased e-cigarettes.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Class actions are useful when a large number of people purchase a defective product, because it wouldn’t make financial sense for everyone to file a lawsuit alone. However, for individual plaintiffs with severe injuries, class actions can have disadvantages. Members of class actions often must accept higher attorneys’ fees or a “low-ball” settlement.
Instead of a class action, our lawyers are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of people who were seriously injured by e-cigarettes. We specialize in helping victims of defective products seek justice and maximize compensation from negligent manufacturers. If you decide to file a lawsuit, you could receive compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income, and more.
