e-cig explosionsLawsuits are being filed across the country over exploding e-cigarettes claiming that the manufacturers made and sold defective products that are a danger to e-cigarette smokers.

Plaintiffs claim the batteries that power e-cigarettes are unregulated, poorly manufactured and not adequately labeled to warn consumers of the danger they may pose.

In California, a woman was awarded $1.9 million by a jury after she suffered severe burns from her e-cigarette exploding in her car. In one recently filed case a teenager suffered partial blindness and in another, a woman suffered third-degree burns from an e-cigarette exploding in her pocket.

Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found 134 reports of explosions, fires, and overheating from e-cigarettes between 2009 and early 2016, e-cigarette manufacturers are trying to blame users for their injuries.
