Woman Sues Vape Shop After Battery Explosion


Pretty nasty injuries

What do you feel about these types of situations involving exploding vaping devices?

Who is to blame whenever something like this happens?

A woman in Arlington, Texas is suing a local vape shop for $1 million after a faulty battery blew up burning her thigh and hand.

The woman is saying that the owners of Luxor Vapors, which is the shop that sold her the battery, knew that the battery was bad.

I don’t want to go into too much details; if you must know them, I suggest you read the original story here.

I’m not really sure how I feel about this. My initial opinion is that vapers have a responsibility to know how to properly use the products they purchase.

But if in this case the battery just blew up out of nowhere, and the owners knew it was no good and still sold it to her, I believe she’s entitled to compensation.

I don’t know though, a million dollars is a lot of money for something vape-related, although I find it unfortunate what happened to the lady in the story and believe she has the right to put a price on her personal injuries.

Luxor Vapor has 2 shops set up in Arlington. This tells me that this isn’t just some small start up. It takes a lot to operate a business, let alone two.

However, I’m not sure if Luxor Vapor has that type of money, or if it does, can they afford to lose something close to a million dollars if they do settle out of court.

Here’s a picture of Luxor Vapor shop below:

They even have a google street view thing going for them and the inside of the shop looks well decorated if you ask me. You can take a little virtual tour of Luxor Vapors here.

I’m not sure what made her come up with the figure of $1 million dollars for her compensation. She’s probably one of those people that believe vaping is owned by Big Tobacco probably?

Former smoker turned vaper since 2013. I blog about questions that I and others might have about vaping. All I can say is it's a better alternative to cigarettes, nicotine gum, patches or medication, no matter what the Big Tobacco backed media says!
