Every generation, a new trend comes along that leaves people scratching their heads and many parents concerned. While there is this stereotype that more recent generations simply don’t know how to “adapt” to the new times, there are cases when people are right to worry.
Juul is one such trend that leaves many users wishing someone stopped them sooner. This particular fad is more dangerous than many people imagined. If you or someone you love used Juul, you may qualify for compensation.
What is Juul?
Juul is the brand name for a type of e-cigarette often compared to vaping. They have a sleek design that makes the product discrete and “cool.” It’s not just the design that screams out at curious kids, though.
One of the main criticisms comes from the many liquid flavors that make Juul selections feel like more of a trip to the candy store than another nicotine device. Flavors like cotton candy and blue raspberry appealed to a younger audience.
Because of this design, countless kids and teens decided to try it out, and many argue that the brand purposely targeted minors (despite denials from the company). Critics also argue that they significantly contributed to the e-cigarette epidemic of today, which has severe health implications.
Is Juul safe?
Although some argue that e-cigarettes are a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes and cigars, Juul products severely impact health. The high concentration of nicotine in the juice makes it highly addictive, and many critics argue that the company failed to warn users about its implications adequately.
Additionally, product use has connections with lung issues, and many people who used them as teens and tweens now notice problems with their health. Lawsuits claim that the company’s products are irresponsible, dangerous, and defective.
What should I do if my child uses Juul?
If your child uses Juul, encourage them to stop. Try your best to explain how using the product today has serious health problems later on in life. Also, please encourage them to seek any possible medical treatment they may require due to the use (especially in terms of addiction treatment).
If you or a loved one used Juul and now experience adverse health problems, as a result, reach out to a lawyer today. They can help you get in touch with the experts you need to find a solution and get the compensation you deserve.
