JUUL Mass Torts & Lawsuits
JUUL Accused of Downplaying Product Dangers
The Law Office of James E. Farmer, LLC is currently hearing from people across the country who are addicted to nicotine after using JUUL vaporizer products, which were advertised as a “safer” alternative to cigarettes. Research into the products has shown that most e-cigarettes and vape pens have more nicotine than many cigarette brands, making them more likely to cause an addiction. People are now suing JUUL for its misleading advertising. You should, too, if you or your child have become addicted to nicotine because of a JUUL.
About the JUUL Addiction Lawsuits
JUUL Labs has been accused of falsely advertising the safety or relative safety of its vaporizer products and e-cigarettes, including JUUL pods. The nicotine in JUUL products is often more than other comparable products, but the risks of nicotine addiction were greatly downplayed by the company in marketing and packaging materials.
To make matters worse, JUUL has been accused of intentionally trying to market to children and teens, the demographics most likely to become addicted to nicotine through semi-regular use. JUUL vape products have been sold in “fun” flavors and colors to allegedly attract children. The company also reportedly paid vendors considerable sums to place JUUL displays front-and-center at checkout stands and right next to other child-targeting products like gums, baseball cards, etc.
Parents across the country are now demanding that JUUL be held accountable for the countless nicotine addictions that have begun in the nation’s younger generations. You should explore your options to take legal action against JUUL, too, if your child is addicted to nicotine because of their products, or if you are addicted and used a JUUL before you turned 18.
Irresponsible Corporate Behavior
JUUL Labs has a multibillion-dollar value today. But parents argue that the company has made the majority of its money from teens who became addicted to their products due to false and misleading marketing strategies.
In the past, JUUL has conducted “educational” seminars at middle schools to warn students of the dangers of nicotine addiction. While such presentations might seem good on the surface, they have been criticized for exposing children to the concept of vaping and using nicotine products, something they might not have considered at all without the presentation. Essentially, the seminars have been described as a corporate ploy to advertise directly to youths.
It was only after the federal government threatened JUUL with fines that the company stopped its school presentations. Legislation was also necessary for JUUL to put prominent nicotine warnings on its products. Overall, JUUL Labs has been accused of irresponsible corporate behavior that amounts to egregious company negligence at best and intentional wrongdoing at worst, which both warrant lawsuits in pursuit of compensation.

JUUL Lawsuit FAQ
Can you sue for damage caused by JUUL products other than nicotine addiction?
Nicotine addiction is not the only danger posed by JUUL and other e-cigarette products. We can assist people who were using a vape pen when it exploded or caught fire, resulting in their severe injury. There might even be grounds to sue JUUL if you developed lung cancer or another respiratory disease due to using its vape products because the company’s ads led you to believe that they were safer than cigarettes.
Is there an age limit for a JUUL lawsuit?
JUUL addiction lawsuits are mostly limited to claimants who are under 18 or who used a JUUL before turning 18 and are now addicted to nicotine.
Can I file a claim on behalf of my child?
Minors cannot file lawsuits on their own. As the parent of a legal minor who has become addicted to the nicotine in JUUL products, you maintain the right to file a claim on their behalf.
