Casey, Devoti & Brockland, a St. Louis-based personal injury firm, has joined the fight against JUUL and other e-cigarette manufacturers. The firm is now helping young people who are addicted to nicotine due to vaping, as well as people who have serious lung injuries due to vaping.
JUUL, the largest manufacturer of e-cigarettes, deceptively sold their vape product as a 'safe alternative' to cigarettes. They preyed on young people by offering false claims and fun, fruity vape liquid flavors - like mango and apple pie. As a result, e-cigarette use by teens has increased 900% since 2015.
We are now facing an epidemic. A new generation of young people are addicted to nicotine and many people are suffering from permanent, irreversible lung damage.
The symptoms of EVALI (e-cigarette, or vaping, product use associated lung injury), include:
Coughing Shortness of Breath Chest Pain
Nausea Vomiting Diarrhea
Fatigue Fever Abdominal Pain
Asthma Collapsed Lung Bronchiolitis Obliterans (BO/Popcorn Lung)
Pneumonia Seizure Stroke

Are you or someone you love suffering from the symptoms of EVALI (e-cigarette, or vaping, product use associated lung injury)?
