Miami JUUL Lawyer
JUUL, the popular electronic cigarette manufacturer, made billions on the lie that their e-cigarettes were a healthy alternative to conventional tobacco products. E-cigarettes heat a liquid into an aerosol, which the user inhales. While the idea that e-cigarettes are healthier because the user does not inhale smoke, or as many chemicals as a conventional cigarette user, the truth is that e-cigarettes, including JUUL products, can cause serious illnesses, including serious respiratory and cardiac damage. Even worse, JUUL specifically targets underage minors as consumers. According to the University of California San Francisco, 27.5 percent of high schoolers and 10.5 percent of eighth graders use e-cigarettes. Over half of these individuals prefer to use JUUL products, possibly because JUUL devices are often disguised to look like pens or thumb/flash drives. Research may have found one of the answers as to why these kids prefer JUUL to other e-cigarettes: according to the University of California San Francisco, JUUL delivers far more nicotine—the addictive substance in tobacco—than other cigarette products. If you or your child suffered a lung injury or other illness caused by a JUUL product, the Miami JUUL lawyers at Spencer Morgan Law can help you seek compensation by filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer.

Researchers found that rodents exposed to JUUL vape versus other tobacco products had five to eight times the nicotine concentrations in their blood.
