    How to claim e-cigarette injury compensation


    E-cigarettes, or electronic cigarettes, are a popular alternative to traditional cigarettes that are much healthier than inhaling all the harmful chemicals cigarettes contain. E-cigarettes release vapour, and smoking them is sometimes referred to as ‘vaping’ and although they contain nicotine, they don’t contain other harmful chemicals and are considered to be a healthier way to smoke, whilst satisfying nicotine cravings. However, a faulty e-cigarette could leave you injured, and Accident Advice Helpline is here to make sure you get the e-cigarette injury compensation you deserve if something has gone wrong.

    What’s happened to your e-cigarette?

    E-cigarettes are made up of several different components including a battery, coil (which heats the e-liquid to release vapours), liquid compartment and the mouthpiece. A fault with an e-cigarette battery could cause it to explode whilst charging, whilst a damaged charging cable could spark, causing an electric shock. A faulty battery could even cause burns whilst using your e-cigarette, to your face and mouth. The e-liquids which are used in e-cigarettes are highly toxic if consumed, even though they release harmless vapours when burned. So if your e-cigarette leaks, it could poison you or a member of your family – there have been cases of animals and children being poisoned by toxic e-liquids.

    The e-cigarette manufacturer has a responsibility to ensure the products they sell are safe, and if you feel that a faulty product has caused your injuries, you could be eligible to claim e-cigarette injury compensation on a 100% no win, no fee** basis with Accident Advice Helpline. Since we were established in 2000, we have helped a number of customers claim compensation for injuries caused by faulty e-cigarettes, and we could help you too.

    Why should you make a claim?

    You deserve to be compensated if a faulty product has left you injured, so make sure you get the compensation you deserve by choosing a reputable personal injury lawyer. There’s a three-year time limit in place to make a personal injury claim, so we recommend contacting us as soon as possible after you have been injured, to find out if you are eligible to make a claim. Accident Advice Helpline is proud to have been endorsed by Dame Esther Rantzen, our patron and well-known TV personality, for our excellent customer service.
