Army veteran files first vaping-related lawsuit in Washington

Army veteran files first vaping-related lawsuit in Washington

September 23, 2019 | and

A new Washington lawsuit alleges that defective vape products led to lung illness. It’s the first suit of its kind filed in the state.

The suit filed by Herrmann Law Group with offices in Seattle and Tacoma on behalf of 44-year-old Charles Wilcoxen claims he suffered from lipoid pneumonia that was caused by vape products and Everett-based distributor Canna Brand Solutions, which sold the Chinese-made vaporizer he used.

Wilcoxen, an Army veteran and Puyallup Tribal Police officer, began using a vaporizer with THC vape pods in 2018 to help with pain relief and stress. Earlier this month, he started suffering from severe wheezing and had to be hospitalized for three days.
