Tobacco & Cigarette Lawsuits in Florida

Helping You Fight Big Tobacco in Fort Lauderdale

Kelley/Uustal is committed to helping victims and their families seek justice against Big Tobacco. No corporation is too big or too powerful to be held accountable for its conduct. For nearly half a century, the tobacco industry has known, and falsely denied, that smoking causes diseases like lung cancer, emphysema, and COPD, and have denied that nicotine is a highly addictive drug which is manipulated in cigarettes to sustain addiction.

Despite this knowledge, they have consistently and repeatedly denied these facts to the public, the Government, and the public health community. The tobacco industry has profited for so many years on this strategy of denial, and continues to profit from selling a highly addictive product that has led to millions of deaths and an immeasurable amount of suffering. Let our Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyers help you seek justice!


Big tobacco kills more than 400,000 Americans each year. Contact Kelley/Uustal today to find out how we can help you seek justice and fair compensation for your losses.


Health Problems Caused By Use of Tobacco Products

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that smoking contributes to nearly 20% of all deaths in the United States. It kills more people than car accidents, HIV, alcohol addiction, suicide, murder, and substance abuse combined.

The use of tobacco products contributes to countless illnesses, including:

  • Lung cancer
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Heart attack and stroke
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High-risk pregnancy
  • Vision loss / blindness
  • Emphysema

Seek Maximum Compensation for Your Losses

If you have suffered substantial injuries as a result of smoking cigarettes, or you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of the tobacco industry, you may be entitled to financial compensation. At Kelley/Uustal, we welcome the chance to help you seek justice.
