Los Angeles Tobacco Personal Injury Lawyer
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) statistics, tobacco is the cause for almost 1 of every 5 deaths in the United States. In fact, more Americans die from tobacco-related medical problems than from car accidents, suicides, murders, HIV and alcohol consumption, combined.
If you or someone close to you has been injured or died as a result of years of tobacco use, you should immediately contact the legal team at the Nourmand Law Firm as you may be entitled to financial compensation. Our tobacco personal injury attorneys have the legal, knowledge and resources to hold the tobacco companies responsible for the harm they have caused you and your family.
What Are Your Rights If Tobacco Has Injured You?
If you were injured by the prolonged used of tobacco, you have certain rights. Your attorney will review your case to determine if you may be entitled to compensation. In reviewing your case, your attorney will look at various factors, including:
- Whether you and your loved ones will be entitled to compensation for medical treatment
- If you will be able to recover lost wages from your job
- If your injuries from smoking entitle you to recover funds for your pain and suffering
If we determine that you have a case, we will work hard to maximize your compensation. Whether we are representing you as a victim or representing you for the loss of your loved one as a result of long term inhalation of tobacco smoke, we will use our expertise to help you in your fight for justice.
What Are the Legal Considerations in Tobacco Personal Injury Suits?
Most personal injury lawsuits are fairly straightforward. However, cases involving tobacco companies are often more complex. There are many complicating factors that may play a big role in your ability to recover compensation. For example, smoking-related health problems usually develop over a long period. A tobacco company can argue in court that many other intervening factors led to your current health problems.
Moreover, your age and any attempts in quitting smoking can also play a factor in any potential recovery. If you have tried to quit smoking in the past, a jury may be more sympathetic to your case. This can be especially relevant if you and your attorney argue that you would have quit smoking if you had known of the dangers earlier. The bottom line is that tobacco-related personal injury claims are complicated. Without the help of a good personal injury attorney to fight for your rights, you may not recover the full compensation to which you are entitled.
