Exploding E-Cigarette Lawsuits Allege Users Suffer Severe Burns From Exploding Ion Lithium Batteries In Electronic Cigarettes.
E-cigarette explosion cases are coming in so “fast and furious” that doctors at the Arizona Burn Center are now documenting them in a medical journal, according to a report in AZCentral.com. At one point, the burn center in Phoenix recorded 12 e-cigarettes-related explosion cases in 12 weeks. Also mounting are the number of exploding e-cigarette lawsuits being filed nationwide on behalf of electronic cigarette users who have suffered chemical burns to their eyes, mouth, neck, and other body parts. The e-cigarette burn lawsuits name the makers and distributors of e-cigarette products as defendants, as well as the retailers that sell them.
“The burn injuries from e-cigarette or e-cigarette battery explosions are not only painful but they are permanent,” says Dr. François Blaudeau, a practicing attorney and physician who founded Southern Med Law because of his strong advocacy for people harmed by defective medical devices, harmful prescription drugs and unsafe consumer products.

e-cigarette lawsuits involve injuries suffered from lithium battery exploding while smoking
Court documents indicate that e-cigarette lawsuits involve injuries plaintiffs suffered from the lithium battery exploding or while smoking the e-cigarette. NBC News reported that an exploding e-cigarette lawsuits was filed on behalf of a 26-year-old Southern California man who suffered second- and third-degree burns allegedly from his e-cigarette battery exploding in his pocket. The largest jury award given to date for an e-cigarette lawsuit was $1.9 million to a California woman in October 2015. The Riverside County plaintiff said she suffered second-degree burns on her legs, buttocks and hand in March 2013 after the e-cigarette battery she was charging in her vehicle’s charger exploded.
cigarette explosions are so severe that patients need multiple skin grafts
Dr. Kevin Foster, chief of burn services at the Arizona Burn Center, said some explosions are so severe that patients need multiple skin grafts. Some e-cigarette explosions occur when people are igniting the device while other explosions occur when the e-cigarette battery explodes in a user’s pant pocket. In one instance, a 17-year-old said she spent three weeks at the burn center and underwent three surgeries and skin grafts after her e-cigarette exploded when she ignited the device.
Electronic cigarettes, powered by lithium-ion batteries, produce a heated vapor of liquid nicotine which the smoker inhales. E-cigarette products are popular among people who want to quit smoking and teenagers. A survey by the U.S. Centers and Disease Control and Prevention found that 2.4 million high school students used e-cigarettes in 2014.
