This Fort Lauderdale, Florida Tobacco Litigation Lawyer can help if you or a loved one has developed a medical condition as a result of tobacco. It is now commonly understood that smoking is hazardous to your health. However, this was not always understood by the general public. There was a time that the general public did not realize that smoking was bad for your health. In fact, many people began smoking before warnings were placed on cigarette packages. Many of these people were already addicted and unable to quit once the warnings came out.
While the general public was not always aware that smoking could be hazardous to your health, the tobacco industry was aware of it long before. In spite of this, the tobacco industry continued to market and sell their products for profit. It is this intentional disregard for the safety of the public that makes tobacco and cigarette manufacturers susceptible to lawsuits.
In addition to marketing and selling their dangerous products, tobacco manufacturers also engaged in deceptive practices for years. For example, tobacco manufacturers intentionally manufactured cigarettes with nicotine levels higher than in natural tobacco. Nicotine is a highly addictive drug which makes people want to continue smoking cigarettes, even though they know smoking is hazardous to their health.

Tobacco manufacturers also placed “filters” on the tips of cigarettes in an effort to make smoking seem safe (i.e., to make it seem as if filters “filtered” out dangerous contaminants). Nevertheless, it is now known that filters do nothing to remove contaminants, instead only giving the smoker the false security that smoking is safe.
Tobacco manufacturers have also marketed their products to certain groups of people, including children. Characters such as “Joe Camel” were specifically designed to appeal to children. Tobacco manufacturers knew that, if people got hooked on cigarettes as kids, they were more likely to remain smokers for the rest of their lives – and this is exactly what happened. This South Florida Tobacco/Cigarette Litigation Lawyer represents people who started smoking cigarettes at all ages.
Due to all of this intentional and highly reckless behavior, you may be able to pursue punitive damages against the tobacco manufacturers if you’ve developed a medical condition as a result of tobacco usage. Punitive damages are designed to actually punish the tobacco manufacturers, rather than compensate you (which compensatory damages are designed to do).Protect Your Rights with This South Florida Tobacco/Cigarette Litigation Attorney
