E-Cigarette Fire and Explosion Injury Lawsuits
E-cigarettes (or e-cigs) use battery coils that turn nicotine-filled cartridges into inhalable vapor. More than 2.5 million Americans use e-cigs, and the devices are marketed to adults, teens, and children in malls, gas stations, convenience stores, and online.
The rechargeable lithium ion batteries that power e-cigs are more than 20 times more powerful than a standard AA battery and have been linked to explosions and fires causing severe injuries and disfigurement.
If you or someone you love were burned, blinded, or disfigured by an exploding e-cigarette, Crumley Roberts wants to help. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, but you have to act fast to protect your rights.

E-Cigarette Battery Explosion Risks
The e-cigarette business is unregulated, and product manufacturers and distributors are not required to put health warnings on packaging or childproof their products. Furthermore, e-cigs are not required to meet any safety standards before reaching consumers.
Lithium ion polymer batteries—like those used in e-cigs—are prone to failure by design. The weakest point of the battery’s cylindrical structure is at the ends. When batteries rupture, pressure can build within, shooting the end of the battery out like a bullet. Explosions are sudden and extremely dangerous to e-cigarette smokers and anyone nearby, even while the device is unattended or charging.
E-cig explosions have caused a variety of serious injuries and permanent disfigurement, including:
- Severe burns and scarring
- Loss of vision
- Finger amputations
- Facial and limb disfigurement
Hundreds of e-cigarette brands are profiting off of an industry worth billions without warning consumers of potential explosion risks or safety testing their devices. At Crumley Roberts, our injury lawyers don’t think this is right, and we’re here to help you hold negligent e-cig manufacturers and distributors accountable.
