If you noticed a television commercial about a series of e-cigarette explosion lawsuits, you’re not alone. American media has been inundated with attorney advertisements centered on the issue, ads that tell viewers who have been injured by exploding e-cigs may be entitled to financial compensation. Most of these commercials say the explosions are being caused by defective lithium-ion batteries, products that may not be outfitted with the appropriate safety mechanisms to reduce the risk of overcharging or short-circuit.
