    Faulty product claims in Tunbridge Wells

    If you’re trying to stop smoking, it will be more than likely that you will have at least considered giving the old electronic cigarettes a bash. If you currently are, it will be worth bearing in mind that some experts say that e-cigarettes themselves may be carcinogenic. The fact that electronic cigarettes have not been around for all that long means that there is very little data on their potential long-term effects.

    Even if it does turn out that electronic cigarettes are not 100% safe, one thing you can be pretty sure of is that using them will likely do you less harm than puffing away on the real thing. However, there are other ways electronic cigarettes can do you harm, over and above the nasty stuff you inhale when having a cheeky vape.

    As the popularity of e-cigs has risen, as have fires that are associated with their use. So much so that fire chiefs have advised that e-cigs should have fire warnings displayed prominently on their packaging. If you were to be injured in a fire that started due to a dodgy e-cigarette, there will be a chance that you might find yourself in a position where you might be able to make faulty product claims in Tunbridge Wells.

    E-cig fires and faulty product claims in Tunbridge Wells

    You may be able to make faulty product claims after being injured in a fire that was started by a defective electronic cigarette, but you will need to have used the item as per its manufacturer’s instructions to do so. It might jeopardise your claim if you had used the e-cig in question with a charger that it was no designed to work with.

    This will be true of most electronic devices. Using them with accessories they are not designed specifically to work with will often invalidate their warranty and make any faulty product claims in Tunbridge Wells after an injury more difficult.
