It is not easy to visit a personal injury lawyer, bring paperwork, and explain the health issue or injury caused by e-cigarette usage. However, it is your best first step is to protect your legal rights. These cases are far too complicated for you to handle on your own, given the amount of scientific data and research studies out there.  It would be difficult for a lay person to know what to do, where to start, and how to evaluate the status of his or her injury. An attorney can explain the pros and cons of your case and then you can make a decision as you see fit.

You will not want to delay as you may lose your right to pursue compensation for the injuries as a result of state-imposed time limits for filing an e-cigarette lawsuit.  Each state has a time limit (typically 2 years) within which people can file certain types of lawsuits. Failure to file within your state’s time period effectively bans your lawsuit.
