If your child is under the age of 18, then your child cannot file a lawsuit no matter how badly he is hurt. The responsibility for filing a lawsuit to hold JUUL Labs accountable for your child’s injuries and to help your child make a legal recovery rests with you as your child’s parent and legal guardian.
Potential Damages in a JUUL Injury Lawsuit
Your child deserves to make a fair recovery for any JUUL-related injuries that your child suffered due to the company’s unfair marketing practices or negligence. Damages could include, but may not be limited to, all of your child’s past, current, and future:
- Healthcare costs
- Lost income
- Physical pain
- Emotional suffering
- Out-of-pocket costs
Punitive damages may also be possible.
Your attorney will make sure that all of your child’s damages are fairly assessed, that the right evidence is gathered, and that your child’s rights are protected by filing a lawsuit with the right court before the statute of limitations expires.
Protect Other Teens From Vaping Injuries
Your child is suffering from unique injuries that significantly impact your child’s life. However, your teen is not the only one who was allegedly hurt by JUUL products.
Stanford University researchers found that JUUL may have marketed its products to minors. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that JUUL marketed its products as safer than traditional cigarettes.
These marketing practices may have hurt your child. By taking a stand now, you could help protect other families from suffering the way that your family is suffering. You could encourage JUUL and other e-cigarette companies to change the way that they advertise to help slow or reverse the epidemic of e-cigarette use among middle and high school students in the United States.
