There has long been an accepted correlation between tobacco use or exposure and chronic health conditions, including lung cancer, anemia, throat cancer, mouth cancer, emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD). Many of these conditions have been linked to cigarette smoke and cigars, pipe use and chewing tobacco. But just because this correlation exists does not mean that every tobacco claim is valid. These cases require individual evaluation by an experienced toxic tort attorney to create a cost-effective approach to resolution or defense.
