E-Cigarette Lawsuit Attorney Kristensen Files Suit in San Diego Superior Court
You’ve heard the expression “liar, liar, pants on fire”? When it comes to e-cigarettes, the liar is anyone who tells you they’re safe to put in your pocket and the one with their pants on fire is, well, this guy.
And he’s not the only one.
This poor guy looks like NASA just decided to conduct their next space shuttle launch from his front pocket.
And then there’s David Glass, whose “vape pen” exploded in his pocket on Easter Sunday 2016.
Kristensen is now representing Mr. Glass in a lawsuit against SKY CITY VAPOR, the San Diego retail shop that sold him the device.
Also named in the suit is importer PERFECTION PEN, LLC, the California company that distributed the batteries in the States.
That’s right, at Kristensen LLP we’re holding them all accountable and we’re doing everything in our power to make sure victims get the compensation they deserve.
According to the Wall Street Journal the FDA received 135 reports of exploding e-cigs between 2009 and the beginning of 2016.
This includes not only those who have e-cigs erupt in their pockets, but those even less fortunate victims who have had the devices explode in their mouths. Needless to say, the injuries in these cases can be truly horrific.
Joseph Cavins of Orange County, California lost and eye and now faces multiple surgeries to reconstruct bones in his face.
This woman faces an uphill battle as she recovers from another episode in which hot sparks shot into and out of her mouth, eventually causing her car to become engulfed in flames.
Our own client, Mr. Glass, was hospitalized after suffering severe burns and permanent scarring of his right upper leg.
These are serious injuries, folks. Innocent people just trying to enjoy their day and then suddenly having their lives disrupted or in some cases even shattered by the carelessness of the e-cigarette industry.
Needless to say, the lawsuits are pouring in. As well they should.
One e-cig victim received $1.9 million from a jury in Riverside, California. Many others have been successful and still more are pending as we speak.
As the $7 billion e-cig industry continues to
explode expand, we can be sure that more and more incidents will occur. We stand ready to defend the rights of any and all victims of this emerging public health menace.
If you have suffered an incident with an exploding, burning, or malfunctioning e-cigarette, don’t get left alone to pick up the pieces like this young lady.
