Nicotine Poisoning in Children


Poison control has received more than 2,700 reports of nicotine poisoning so far this year. Over half of those reports have been for children under the age of six. This sharp increase in nicotine poisoning in children is directly related to the liquid nicotine used in e-cigarettes.
As more smokers have switched to vaporized nicotine, liquid nicotine has found its way into thousands of homes with children. Sadly, because liquid nicotine can be absorbed through the skin, this places children in these homes at increased risk for serious and potentially fatal poisoning.
Certainly, the responsibility to keep dangerous products away from small children falls to parents. However, the warnings on many liquid nicotine bottles is weak at best, and heavily overshadowed by the claims touting the benefits of e-cigarettes.
When a dangerous product is not properly labeled or deceptively marketed, victims of injury may be entitled to seek compensation through legal action. The best way to learn if you have cause to file suit is through a one-on-one consultation with a product liability attorney at The Cochran Firm.
