Proving Liability in a Vaping Injury Claim

If you or a loved one has suffered serious lung damage from e-cigarette use, you may have questions about proving liability in a vaping injury claim.


How do I know if I have a vaping injury case?


We recently spoke to a woman from North Augusta who believed that she had been injured as a result of vaping for a number of years. She wanted to know how, in South Carolina, does one go about actually proving that. The answer to that sounds straightforward, even though it’s really not. Basically, what you have to do in South Carolina is show that the vaping itself was the approximate cause of the injury you sustained. Proving Liability in a Vaping Injury ClaimApproximate cause doesn’t mean that it was the only cause. If you sustain lung damage, you don’t have to show that the lung damage was only caused by the vaping, only that the vaping was an approximate cause, and that it contributed to your lung damage or made prior lung damage worse. This is fact-specific and will require medical expert testimony, as it can be sometimes difficult to make that connection.

That’s why early on in any process – if you do believe you’ve been victimized as a result of vaping – you need to contact and hire an experienced trial attorney who has experience in handling similar cases. You need an attorney who had experience in handling products liability cases and who has a network of experts that they can reach out to help guide them through the process, and that they can guide you through the process of a vaping case.

If anyone out there has been the victim of vaping, please give us a call. We’d be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
