Product Liability Lawsuit
If a vape pen explodes, the injured individual may file a civil lawsuit or what is known as a products liability lawsuit. A products liability lawsuit is a suit which is filed against the manufacturer of a product that typically alleges either a failure to warn or some type of inherent defect in the product. Obviously, if a vape pen is exploding and causing severe injuries or even death, there is an inherent defect within the product. This type of case would not typically include a failure to warn aspect because a failure to warn claim usually alleges that a company failed to warn of a potential hazard that a consumer may be willing to accept. The explosion of a device is not a hazard which can simply be warned of. An explosion which can cause severe injury or death makes the product not fit for any type of use and therefore must be remedied or the product must no longer be sold to the public.
If the person who is injured by the vape is able to establish that the vape was a dangerous product, the plaintiff will be entitled to damages for his or her injuries. Damages include compensation for pain and suffering as well as any economic losses that the injured person may have suffered. For example, pain and suffering damages will include compensation for the pain and harm that burn injuries cause. Economic damages will include money for time lost from work and or medical bills.
