Vaping & e-cigarette injuries may vary from nicotine addiction, seizure, stroke, heart attack, lung damage, and death. If you currently or have previously vaped and/or have smoked e-cigarettes and have experienced any or all of these symptoms, it is important to take action.
Anyone can be a victim of this dangerous trend, but the most significant indications of vaping/e-cigarette injury have occurred in persons between the ages of 14 and 26 years of age. While there have been 30 total cases of vaping-related lung injuries confirmed by doctors in Louisiana alone, state officials continue to work with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control to investigate the severity of these cases. Out of over 2,000 reports of lung injuries suspected to be caused by vaping in 2019 in the U.S., at least 40 have been fatal.
