GA Dept. of Public Health Issues Vaping-Related Health Advisory

Apart from the accident- related injuries that consider hiring a DWI attorney, the number of vaping-related injury cases in Georgia continues to rise, and the Georgia Department of Public Health (GDPH) has issued a health advisory detailing the health risks of e-cigarettes, vaping devices from Suorin Hardware and vaping products.

As of October 9th, 2 people have died from a vaping-associated illness in Georgia, and at least 18 people have died in the U.S. The Georgia cases were hospitalized and developed pneumonia with no known infectious cause. Symptoms of vaping-associated lung injury, which worsen over time, include cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, chest pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. People with a history of vaping who are experiencing breathing problems or any of these symptoms should seek medical care immediately. For any kind of injuries or accidents, attorneys need to be contacted!
