Dangerous and Defective Products Exploding E-Cigarettes

The explosion of an e-cigarette opens new discussions on defective products, manufacturers’ liability, injuries, etc.

Author: Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP

Back in the day, an exploding cigar in a comedian’s mouth would have the audience rolling in the aisles.  However, when an electronic cigarette blew up in a Florida man’s face  recently, it was no laughing matter.  The e-cigarette explosion left the victim with severe burns, two missing front teeth, and part of his tongue missing.  The explosion occurred at the victim’s home office and not only injured him but also burned carpets, chair cushions, pictures, and office equipment.

Despite oversight, defective products get into the marketplace

Despite the fact that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) exists to protect the public from risks of serious injury or death from consumer products, thousands of people are injured every year.  And dangerous and defective products still find their way into the marketplace.  Examples of defective products may include:

•    Dangerous toys
•    Laptop batteries
•    Electric blankets
•    Defective auto parts/automobiles
•    Defective cribs
•    Industrial machinery
•    Improperly designed consumer products
•    Prescription drugs
•    Defective medical devices
•    Birth control patches or devices

If you have suffered a serious injury because of a dangerous or defective product, you may be entitled to pursue compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and rehabilitation.

Consult with a NY personal injury attorney about your case

Thousands of people are injured or even killed every year by dangerous and defective products.  And the sad fact is that many of these incidents could have been avoided if steps had been taken to ensure the safety of those products.  If you or a member of your family has been injured or died because of a defective product you should consult with an experienced NY personal injury attorney right away.  Acting immediately is important because you only have a certain amount of time to make a legal claim.  To discuss your injury with a qualified attorney contact us online or call our Suffolk County law firm at 631-451-7900 to schedule a free consultation today.
