Man Injured by an E-Cigarette ‘Pipe Bomb’ Wins $2.3M

A jury here has awarded a Dardenne Prairie man $2.3 million after an electronic cigarette battery exploded in his mouth, broke his teeth, fractured his jaw and burned his hand.

Attorneys for Bryan Durham argued during a four-day trial last week that e-cigarette distributor Lightfire Holdings LLC handed customers a “tiny pipe bomb” with a powerful, unprotected lithium-ion battery and did not warn them of the potential dangers.

“It’s like they hand you a brick of C-4 and they tell you it’s Play-Doh,” said Sara Craig, an attorney for Durham. “You have no comprehension that what you’re handling is that volatile and has that much potential energy stored inside it.”
