When a manufacturer creates a product, they are liable for any damage that their product causes. Legally, this is referred to as product liability. Consumers who experience injuries and other complications from medication, vehicles, and other products have the right to file a product liability lawsuit to recover compensation for the damages they incurred. Unfortunately, sometimes these products even cause death.

In the past couple of years, product liability lawsuits have been on the rise in the United States. If a product has caused you harm that wasn’t disclosed on the packaging or didn’t warn you about beforehand, then you could have a claim against the manufacturer. A product liability lawyer from Thomas Law Offices in Louisville can support you through the legal process.

On July 26, 2019, 17-year-old Tryston Zohfeld’s previously healthy lungs suddenly failed. He says he woke up vomiting, and his heart was beating rapidly. The Texas teen was rushed to the Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas. Doctors put him in a medically induced coma while they ran tests to figure out the cause. Tests for diseases like pneumonia all came back negative even though chest X-rays showed his lungs were completely blocked.

His condition kept getting worse and doctors didn’t know the cause. That’s when a family member revealed that Tryston had vaped since he was in the eighth grade. His parents were shocked because they hadn’t known about his secret habit. His father, Matt Zohfeld said to ABC, “The lightbulb started coming on. It started making sense why we weren’t finding anything else.”
