Tobacco Litigation Cases
In 2006, a ruling by the Florida Supreme Court paved the way for more than 8,000 smokers and their families to individually pursue lawsuits against tobacco companies. This occurred after the court dismissed a class action lawsuit of more than 700,000 smokers. Since then, a wrongful death lawsuit against RJ Reynolds resulted in more than $23 billion in punitive damages awarded to the widow of a smoker. The verdict was appealed and the court lessened the award to below $17 million.
As tobacco litigation continues, smokers and their loved ones have the opportunity to hold companies accountable for the devastating effects of their addictive products.
