You may think that filing for a product liability claim with a tobacco manufacturer is pointless.
However, rest assured, if you work with the right team of professionals, your endeavors will be favorable.
If you developed a disease as a consequence of smoking tobacco, you may be eligible for filing a liability claim since smoking causes diseases affecting nearly all body parts.
While it may seem unfair that only these individuals are eligible for recovering compensation, it is important to know that there is a good reason behind this criterion.
Only smokers with certain diseases qualify for filing a tobacco product liability claim, as there must be a strong causal relationship between tobacco use and the disease you are struggling with.
Consequently, only if you have one of the following diseases you can seek compensation from tobacco manufacturers:
It is important to know that chronic obstructive pulmonary disease refers to emphysema and chronic bronchitis, whereas throat cancer includes esophageal cancer, laryngeal cancer, and pharyngeal cancer.?
In addition to suffering from a disease that makes you eligible for filing a tobacco product liability claim, you must fall under a certain category of smokers to qualify for seeking financial compensation for your diagnosis.
Accordingly, only people who began smoking before 1964 as a minor can file a tobacco product liability claim with one or multiple companies, depending on the brands of cigarettes they have been smoking.
Because diseases caused by tobacco smoking take several years or even decades to develop, only people who began smoking before 1964 qualify for filing a product liability claim.
Similarly, because smoking affects minors to a significantly greater extent than adults, people who intend to file a claim must have been underage when they first engaged in this unhealthy habit.
