You bought an e-cigarette because it was a healthier alternative to smoking chemical-packed cigarettes. So the last thing you expected was to be injured by a faulty e-cigarette. E-cigs are still a fairly new product, and there have been cases where people have suffered minor or serious injuries due to faulty e-cigarettes or battery packs. Why not find out if you could make a claim for exploding e-cigarette compensation with Accident Advice Helpline? The e-cigarette manufacturer could be held liable for your injuries and you could receive compensation on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
What injuries have you sustained?
An exploding e-cigarette has the potential to cause serious injuries. You’re smoking it, so it is close to your mouth and face, which could mean if it explodes it could cause facial and hand injuries such as serious burns, or lacerations from the broken glass. E-cigarettes use battery power to heat an inner coil, which then heat the e-liquid that is turned into vapour. So if your e-cigarette is faulty and overheats, the result could be an explosion which could shatter the e-liquid compartment. E-liquid itself is highly toxic and could cause an allergic reaction on your skin or illness if accidentally consumed.
It might be that it’s the battery of your e-cigarette that has exploded whilst charging, causing burns to your hands and fingers. Whatever has happened, you deserve to use your e-cigarette without worrying about it being faulty, so you could make a claim for exploding e-cigarette compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. We’ve been helping people claim compensation since 2000 and our team of experienced advisors are on hand offering confidential, no-obligation advice.
