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.
