As the cigarette industry devises new tactics to keep users hooked, Vape pens, E-Cigs, and JUULs are the newest wave of cleverly marketed tobacco products. While many use these products under the belief that they are somehow safer than traditional tobacco products, their effects can be just as harmful to their bodies. It often surprises E-Cig users when they develop life-altering illnesses because they have been sold on the idea that e-cig products don't have the same devastating consequences as other products. Adding to the issue is the disparity in marketing tactics toward young people instead of older users, which can create other problems. If you believe your child has been suffering from the dangerous effects of e-cigarettes, we're here to help. Here are a few ways we can help you fight against tobacco companies and help get you the compensation you deserve.
Issues E-Cigarettes Cause in Children
The effects that tobacco products have on young people are well known. However, tobacco products can also emotionally and psychologically impact young people. For instance, young people who consistently vape show higher instances of anxiety and depression and, if left unchecked, may lead to thoughts of suicide.
What You Can Do
Identifying the signs of e-cigarette use in your children is crucial so you can make an intervention plan. Some of the signs your child may be vaping can include:
- Changes in behavior
- Unusual smells in your home
- Sleep disturbances
The marketing tactics of cigarette companies rely heavily on flavoring their products to attract young users and hook them for life. Adding to the issue is the fact that many of these products have little to no testing procedures in place, and they often contain unregulated chemicals. The combination of deceptive marketing and poor safety regulations is a recipe for disaster. If your child has suffered a debilitating injury or illness as a result of e-cigarette use, it's essential for you to have someone in your corner fighting for you.
