Tobacco Cases Attorney
As more and more tobacco companies have been held liable for the harmful effects of smoking and other tobacco uses, it has become more difficult to maneuver the procedures of tobacco litigation in the courts and to keep abreast of verdicts and settlements in tobacco cases.
The tobacco industry is becoming more heavily regulated, and excise taxes are being heavily imposed to cut down on tobacco consumption. In addition, states and insurance companies are filing class action lawsuits against the tobacco companies which are seeking medical cost reimbursement.
Recent tobacco litigation has produced large verdicts against tobacco companies, and the latest Brooke and Liggett Group settlement is a landmark settlement.
If you or someone you know has regularly consumed tobacco products and have incurred injury by doing so, the Law Offices of John S. Kalil can help you obtain your fair share of any class action settlement or pursue litigation against the offending tobacco company to ensure you or your beneficiaries receive compensation for the tobacco companies’ deceptive behavior.
