In a unique case, a truck driver was injured in a crash caused by an exploding
e-cigarette. The driver, Christian S., was driving on I-65 in Indiana
when the e-cigarette he was using exploded in his hand. While the details
of the accident are still hazy, it seems likely that the sudden explosion
caused Christian to lose control and drive into a guardrail.

The Cause of the Injuries
According to local law enforcement, Christian’s injuries appear to
be primarily related to the explosion, not the
truck crash itself. Thankfully no other vehicles were involved in the accident, as
the large truck Christian was driving could have caused serious injuries
or fatalities to other drivers.
Are There Grounds For an Injury Suit?
Since the injuries were mostly caused by the e-cigarette explosion, Christian
may have recourse to hold the manufacturer, distributor, and retailer
of the products responsible. However, this may be more challenging than
you might think. In a lawsuit, defense attorneys would likely question
- Was the device used in accordance with instructions?
- Was the device charged correctly?
- Was it poorly maintained?
