E-Cigarette Injury Claims 

When we think of injuries being caused by, or associated with e-cigarettes or e-cigs, many of us might think of long-term injuries and illnesses, such as lung injuries. While the UK authorities are yet to officially note a link between vaping and long-term injury, it should be noted that the United States government’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has actually noted a correlation between vaping and e-cigarettes and lung injuries. 
However, when e-cigarettes are defective or faulty, there is a risk of users being seriously injured when things go wrong. Here at MG Legal, our injury solicitors specialise in faulty E-cigarette injury claims just like yours, and accept all of our claims on a NO WIN NO FEE basis.

The major risk with faulty E-Cigarettes is that the product can explode while consumers are using it, or when it is in their pockets. When this happens, it can cause a number of extremely painful injuries that lead to long-term damage and injury. 
Some of the most common faulty E-Cigarette injuries that our E-Cigarette injury solicitors see, include: 

What can go wrong with an E-Cigarette? 

So, you might be wondering, with so much talk of the dangers of E-Cigarettes ‘What causes E-Cigarettes to explode?’. Generally speaking, E-Cigarettes are usually very safe, but they can go wronged explode when the lithium battery in the E-Cigarette explodes. When these lithium batteries overheat, they experience something known as ‘thermal runaway’, which causes a flammable gas to be released, which when set alight can cause the E-Cigarette to explode. This can come out of no where for many consumers, causing serious injury to many. 
Another common problem found with E-Cigarettes, is when consumers use the wrong chargers for the E-Cigarette, that did not come with the product and is not compatible with it. When this happens, and a charger that is too strong or has too much power is used, this can also cause the E-Cigarette to overheat. This can also cause the E-Cigarette to explode, or can even lead to jet flames shooting from the product causing serious risk of injury. 

How common are E-Cigarette explosion injuries? 

With regards to the injuries caused by E-Cigarette explosions, or faulty E-Cigarettes, there are no studies or figures that have been produced yet to track the regularity of the injuries. However, when it comes to explosions from faults E-Cigarettes, and the incorrect charging of E-Cigarettes, The London Fire Brigade, in 2020, said they attend an average of 24 fires per week caused by these batteries
