Hawaii Tobacco Litigation Lawyer

Compensation for Illness Caused by Tobacco

The tobacco industry has conducted a long-term public relations campaign to downplay the harmful effects of smoking and other forms of tobacco use, as well as aggressive advertising campaigns to maximize their profits. Countless people have been harmed by this deception, and you may have rights against the tobacco industry if you suffer from a disease known to be caused by tobacco. After years of legal battles, in the mid-nineties class action lawsuits against the large tobacco companies began winning huge settlements for smokers and others who became ill as a result of second-hand smoke. A Hawaii personal injury attorney can discuss your case with you to determine whether you can bring a suit to recover damages.

Smokers aren't the only ones who suffer adverse health effects from tobacco. Thousands of people develop lung cancer and respiratory difficulties every year from prolonged exposure to cigarette smoke and other forms of tobacco use, including children who live with smokers. Waiters, flight attendants and bartenders are among the most numerous victims of tobacco, thorough what is known as "environmental tobacco smoke" (ETS). There is recourse for individuals who have been harmed through environmental tobacco smoke. For example, a class action lawsuit resulted in damages being awarded to flight attendants who could prove that they were non-smokers, worked during the period when smoking was permitted on commercial passenger jets, and now have a disease that is known to be caused by ETS.
