Vape Explosion Victim Awarded $1.9 Million
The New York Daily News reports that a jury in California awarded $1.9 million to Jennifer Ries, a woman who suffered 2nd-degree burns on her legs and hands after her vape exploded on a car charger.
Nearly all vapes are powered by lithium-ion batteries that contain a highly-flammable liquid encased in a metal cylinder. When vapes are overheated, the liquid boils and increases pressure inside the cylinder. This can cause an explosion that looks like a firework or small rocket. It can also shoot metal shrapnel.
Since 2009, the news media has reported around 200 vape explosions, according to a comprehensive list compiled by eCigOne. About half of those reports involve burn injuries, 44% occurred during charging, and 25% occurred during use.
Injuries Caused by Vape Explosions
- Broken teeth
- Finger amputation
- Jaw wired shut
- Drivers losing control of vehicles
- House fires
- Luggage exploding on planes
- And more
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our lawyers are not filing a class action lawsuit for victims of vape explosions. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits.
About Class Actions
Class actions are designed to help a lot of people resolve similar legal claims as efficiently as possible. Everyone joins together, consolidates their claim into one lawsuit, chooses a representative, and uses that person’s case to fight for compensation. If compensation is awarded, everyone shares equally.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
For people with severe injuries from defective products, class actions can have disadvantages. They are not designed to maximize compensation. Members may also have to accept “low-ball” settlements or higher attorneys’ fees that leave little payout remaining.
Our lawyers specialize in helping victims of defective products file lawsuits against manufacturers. If you were injured by an exploding vape or e-cigarette, you could be entitled to compensation for your injury, medical expenses, permanent disfigurement, and more.
