Electronic cigarettes expert witnesses have considerable knowledge on “E-cigarettes”, battery-operated smoking products that convert nicotine and other chemicals into a vapor, which is inhaled by the user. E-cigarettes function like tobacco smoking by producing flavored aerosol that is much like tobacco smoke. E-cigarettes deliver nicotine but with fewer of the toxic chemicals produced by burning tobacco leaves.
Vapor products are often manufactured to look like conventional cigarettes, cigars, and pipes, with over 250 varieties of E-cigarette brands currently on the market. Even though E-cigarettes are frequently promoted as safer alternatives to traditional cigarettes, there is currently very little known about the health risks of using these devices, such as the long-term health effects and whether they are truly safer than conventional cigarettes. These types of questions lead to litigation such as negligence, tort and products liability, as well as intellectual property claims, and regulation of vapor retail businesses, E-cigarette manufacturing, distribution, and sales.
ForensisGroup expert witnesses consult on all aspects of the growing E-cigarette industry and partner with attorneys, law firms, insurance companies, and government agencies in legal matters. This area is continuing to evolve, and because E-cigarettes are not currently marketed either as tobacco products or as devices having a therapeutic purpose, there is no FDA approval process or regulations. Our experts monitor this for changes.
