Can I file a vaping injury lawsuit on behalf of my child?
We were recently contacted by a woman from South Carolina whose son had sustained lung damage as a result of vaping. She wanted to know how she goes about bringing a case and if she can, in fact, bring a case on behalf of her son. The answer to that is yes, if her son is a minor. Until her son turns 18 years old, in fact, he can only bring a case through his mother and father.
The important thing to remember is that the parents are bringing it on behalf of their son or daughter, and they have to make sure that they have the interest of the child, first and foremost, when they’re bringing any type of personal injury case on behalf of a minor who cannot bring a case on their own. I would urge anyone out there who, if they have a child that has been the victim of vaping, to go ahead and contact an attorney as soon as possible and find a trial attorney who has experience in vaping cases and products liability cases. Go ahead and talk to that lawyer. That lawyer will be able to guide you through the process of making a claim against the vaping companies.
If you’ve been the victim or if your children have been the victim of vaping, please give us a call. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have.
