Can I sue for burns from an e-cigarette?
Kansas City personal injury law firms help people who are injured as a result of someone else’s negligent, reckless or intentional actions – – or their failure to act— recover monetary compensation for the damages they suffered in an effort to ease the financial burden their physical and/or psychological injuries have caused.
Depending on the extent of their injuries, victims often need compensation for current and future medical expenses and/or rehabilitation, current and future lost income or diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more. It takes an expert attorney to be able to evaluate future damages, so most victims should seek legal counsel right away and definitely before accepting any settlement offer from an insurance company. Often such offers are a fraction of what the claim is worth and may not include enough compensation for long-term or life-long financial and other losses.
Defective products often cause personal injuries. As a result, federal and state regulations– known as product liability law– exist to help those who have been personally harmed or whose property has been damaged due to a poorly designed or manufactured product, or a dangerous and defective one that fails to have sufficient safety instructions or warnings.
Product liability cases are complex and require skilled attorneys able to prove the direct link between the product defect and the injuries sustained.
Recently, a New York man claims he became the latest victim of an allegedly defective e-cigarette that reportedly ignited in his pants pocket. He allegedly suffered first and second degree burns to his leg and may need future skin grafts. In addition to causing at least one fatality, “experts say 62% of e-cigarettes that explode do so while they are in use or carried in a pocket’’.
