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 they 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 they continue to profit from selling a highly addictive product that has led to millions of wrongful deaths and an immeasurable amount of suffering.Big tobacco kills more than 400,000 Americans each year – let our Fort Lauderdale tobacco litigation lawyers help you seek justice for your injuries or loss!
