What Is EVALI?

E-cigarettes are marketed as an alternative to traditional tobacco smoking. However, while they may be advertised as a healthier alternative, there is another threat unique to e-cigarettes: E-cigarette, or Vaping Product, Use Associated Lung Injury (EVALI)

In the summer of 2019, the U.S. Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began to investigate a spike of e-cigarette user hospitalizations, with symptoms including shortness of breath, coughing, and chest pain. 

Eventually, the CDC formally identified the collection of symptoms as EVALI. This condition would go on to affect 2800 people and kill 68 patients. Researchers eventually identified the most likely culprit as vitamin E acetate. According to the CDC, 15% of EVALI victims were under the age of 18.

EVALI is one more example of the dangers that e-cigarettes pose to consumers. Many consumers have begun to file multidistrict litigation (MDL) lawsuits alleging that e-cigarettes were not properly tested before being released to the public.

If you or a loved one have suffered from EVALI because of e-cigarette usage, you may be eligible to recover compensation for your medical expenses. In order to join an e-cigarette MDL, you will need a mass torts attorney. 

An experienced mass torts attorney can help you join mass actions and advocate for your needs. Additionally, a mass torts attorney can not only advocate for your case but also withdraw you from a settlement if it doesn’t serve your needs. 

The best place to find a mass torts attorney is Attorney at Law.

At AAL, our nationwide network of attorneys and law firms can match you with a local mass torts attorney in your area. Our partners have the resources, legal expertise, and experience to fight against the largest corporations in the nation and emerge victorious. 

In addition to a distinguished case record, our partners also excel in client care. The biggest source of stress for many clients is the concern of costs. Lawsuits can be financially draining. However, to take the stress away, AAL exclusively partners with law firms that work on contingency.

Under a contingency system, clients will not have to pay anything upfront and, if the lawsuit doesn’t succeed, clients never pay anything.
