JUUL e-Cigarette Lawsuit Signed Cases
JUUL is the biggest selling e-cigarette in the US. It’s a high technology nicotine delivery device blamed for deaths and injuries across the country. While cigarette use may take many years to result in serious health problems for smokers, some e-cigarette users are dying and suffering serious injuries after only months of use. This has sparked a rising tide of litigation against JUUL and other companies.

At least 12 deaths in the US have been blamed on JUUL use so far, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Hundreds of illnesses have also been tied to e-cigarette use. Lawsuits by consumers have been filed against e-cigarette maker JUUL Labs Inc., and others makers. Their numbers are expected to increase as scrutiny increases and more cases of injuries and deaths are reported.
JUUL lawsuits claim harm, fraud and the need to fund treatment for users who want to stop
Adult JUUL users and parents of teenagers who used it have filed dozens of lawsuits over vaping-related injuries in courts around the country. These legal claims cover individuals and some are purported class action cases. JUUL is being sued in part because it controls about 75% of the e-cigarette market, up from about 40% in 2017, making it the most popular e-cigarette brand in the US. Its annual sales totaled $1.7 billion in 2018, with a market valuation of $38 billion as of early 2019, according to Technavio.
Others listed as defendants include Marlboro maker Altria Group Inc., which has a minority stake in JUUL. One plaintiffs’ attorney told Bloomberg, “This is a massive litigation that is massively complex…”
Plaintiffs claim they became addicted to using JUUL and at least two lawsuits go further. A Connecticut man, in a lawsuit filed in California state court, alleges he suffered a debilitating stroke due to JUUL use, while the parents of a teenage Florida girl, in a proposed class action in Florida federal court, allege their daughter suffered seizures after ingesting liquid used by the device.
Allegations include fraudulent marketing in which the company claimed its product is meant to help adults stop smoking cigarettes, while marketing them to minors and young adults who have never smoked. Plaintiffs allege JUUL claimed its products are a safe alternative to cigarettes, while they actually deliver higher doses of nicotine. Other claims focus on product liability, stating JUUL’s products are defectively designed because they’re inherently dangerous, and that JUUL failed to warn about their hazards or both.
Those not directly impacted by JUUL are filing lawsuits as well.
- Olathe Public Schools in Kansas is suing the company Juul, claiming misleading advertisements are targeted to middle and high school students, reports KCTV.
- The Public Health Advocacy Institute at Northeastern University in Boston has filed a purported class action lawsuit against JUUL, demanding it fund a treatment program in Massachusetts for teenagers who started using the company’s product before reaching age 18 and who want to quit, according to the Boston Globe.
- The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office in Illinois is suing JUUL for using deceptive marketing and targeting teenagers, reports the Insurance Journal. The state of North Carolina is doing the same, according to CNBC.
JUUL defends itself by stating its products are meant as a less dangerous alternative for adults who smoke. They claim never to have marketed to youth and do not want any non-nicotine users to try their products.
