PRODUCT LIABILITY IN E-CIGARETTE EXPLOSION ACCIDENTS

Generally speaking, companies that manufacture products have a responsibility to create goods that are reasonably safe. A manufacturer may be negligent in a product’s (1) design, (2) manufacturing and (3) marketing. With respect to e-cigarettes, the low quality batteries that are used to power vaporizers can be prone to become dangerously over or undercharged. Moreover, the manufacturers and stores that are distributing e-cigarettes are not doing an adequate job of making consumers aware of all of the risks of smoking from these devices. Any person that is injured by an e-cigarette may have the ability to file a claim for damages.
