Juul is a popular e-cigarette whose marketing tactics were clearly designed to draw in young people. Illegal marketing and false advertising have resulted in millions being paid in settlements across the United States. While it may seem odd that public schools are now involved in Juul lawsuits, the truth is they have quite a bit at stake. From the schools to administrators, everyone is concerned about the dangers of these e-cigarettes.
Schools Are at the Frontline of This Epidemic
Your children spend approximately 6 hours a day at school, so it’s no wonder schools are being impacted so severely by e-cigarettes or vaping. Illnesses and deaths due to vaping cost public schools time, money, and valuable resources.
Many public schools simply can’t handle the losses, which has swayed more to join a Juul lawsuit. More than that, it’s about keeping your children safe while they are away from home.
What Is the Main Focus of Juul Lawsuits?
The focus is largely on the flagrant flaws in their marketing. Issues like deceptive labeling, false advertising, and inadequate consumer warnings are all addressed. But the biggest issue is that they may have marketed to minors, which is illegal.
What Are the Harmful Effects of Vaping?
Intended as a replacement for cigarettes, Juul marketed their product as something less harmful than smoking and even as a way to stop smoking cigarettes. Studies have shown this simply is not the case.
In fact, the difference between smoking and vaping side effects really aren’t really that different. Short-term effects include coughing, breathing problems, headaches, and nausea. Long-term effects are heart problems, damage to the lungs, nicotine poisoning, and stroke.
How Can I Find Out If I Should Take Part in a Juul Lawsuit?
The best way to find out is to speak with legal counsel who handles these types of litigations. Be prepared to answer some questions. You should expect to be asked about the type of injury you or your child has suffered, the last time you or your child vaped, the brand of e-cigarette used, and the frequency of vaping.
