There are currently 33 tobacco manufacturers in the United States that are responsible for many terrible diseases a large number of smokers struggle with today.

However, there are certain notorious tobacco companies that have the largest revenue today as a result of their products being the most popular on the market.

Manufacturers add many other chemicals to their cigarettes just to improve quality and taste.

The following are the most renowned tobacco manufacturers in the country, which continue to endanger the health of over 34 million people who are smokers at the moment:

  • Altria Group Inc.
  • British American Tobacco PLC
  • Imperial Tobacco Group PLC
  • Vector Group Ltd.
  • Reynolds American
  • American Tobacco Company
  • Ligget Group
  • Phillip Morris USA
  • ITG Brands
  • Republic Tobacco
  • General Tobacco
  • Universal Corporation

Smokers with a lung cancer diagnosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or throat cancer may be eligible for compensation from liable tobacco manufacturers. Nevertheless, they must have begun smoking before 1964 as a minor in order to qualify for filing a tobacco claim.

Similarly, if you have a family member in this situation, you should advise them to reach out to us. With the money they recover from the responsible tobacco manufacturers, they can use it for superior healthcare and treatment for their disease.
