A man is alleging that he is missing seven teeth after his e-cigarette exploded inside of his mouth. He also sustained second-degree burns when the explosion happened. The victim posted this incident and pictures on his personal Facebook page, and he claims that he has been using e-cigarettes for almost a year and has followed the instructions. He wanted to share his experience with others to help warn them of the potential dangers of the product. The man has been released from the hospital, and he is trying to figure out how he can get back to work and also wonders how to get his teeth back.
Products can severely hurt consumers even if they follow instructions and use products properly. These injuries can be minor like cuts or bruises or more serious like the injuries suffered by the e-cigarette. Companies are responsible for the product they sell and should always be alerted of any issues or problems. Consumers are protected from faulty or defective products by product liability laws. It is also important to contact a product liability attorney if you have been injured. An attorney will investigate your case and determine if you have grounds to pursue legal action. If you were using a faulty or defective product and sustained injuries, the product company could be liable for your injuries.
