For years, smokers and their families have been filing lawsuits against tobacco companies for producing addictive products and concealing such hazards from the public. Generally, tobacco lawsuits fall under product liability claims. As of now, there is no class for cigarette lawsuits, but if an individual plaintiff can prove that they have suffered nicotine addiction, which has led to a smoking-related illness or disease, he or she may be able to file a lawsuit against the responsible tobacco company

Has your loved one developed an illness due to a nicotine addiction after using cigarettes? If so, we urge you to call our Miami tobacco litigation lawyers at Freidin Brown, P.A. today. If we don’t recover compensation for you, you don’t pay a penny.

Common Smoking-Related Illnesses and Diseases

According to the American Lung Association, smoking cigarettes can lead an individual to develop and suffer from a wide range of illnesses and diseases, including:

  • Lung cancer
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Asthma
  • Reproductive effects in women
  • Premature / Low birth-weight babies
  • Diabetes
  • Blindness, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration
  • Other types of cancer (Colon, Cervix, Liver, Stomach and Pancreatic Cancer)

Common Reasons for Recent Tobacco-Related Lawsuits reports that while many of the first tobacco lawsuits, which emerged around the late 1950s, were unsuccessful, many lawsuits that have emerged since 1994 have found much success. Now, many lawsuits are filed against tobacco companies for the following reasons:

  • Fraudulent marketing
  • Marketing to underage persons
  • Conspiring to conceal the health effects of smoking cigarettes

The Engle Tobacco Case

In 1994, a class action lawsuit was filed against tobacco companies after the represented class, made up of Florida citizens, suffered from various smoking-related illnesses. The jury returned a verdict for the smokers, which included $145 billion in punitive damages. After tobacco companies appealed this original verdict, the case was taken to the Florida Supreme Court. The Court ruled to allow members of the original class to file cases individually, permitting issues already decided in the class action suit to hold true for the separate lawsuits. This included findings that tobacco products are addictive, dangerous, defective, and the cause of various diseases. Additionally, tobacco companies were held liable for fraud, conspiracy, and negligence. The results of Engle Tobacco Case may lead to continued successful lawsuits against tobacco companies.
