An older man smoking a cigarette.

For decades, tobacco companies have marketed their products to millions of Americans without adequately warning about the risks associated with smoking. It wasn’t until the latter half of the 20th century that the health implications of tobacco use, including various types of cancer and COPD, became widely acknowledged, thanks in part to relentless efforts by health advocates and legal professionals. Despite this, many individuals had already become addicted, leading to life-altering diagnoses. The history of tobacco litigation is a testament to the fight for transparency, accountability, and reparations for affected individuals.

Attorney Jim Glaser and his team of product liability attorneys at Jim Glaser Law are dedicated to supporting individuals in Massachusetts facing dire health outcomes due to tobacco usage. If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and believe it’s a result of smoking for decades, you may be entitled to compensation with a Boston tobacco cancer lawsuit or COPD lawsuit. Our firm can help you in the fight for justice.

Are You Eligible To File a Tobacco Cancer Lawsuit in Boston?

Eligibility for filing a tobacco cancer lawsuit hinges on several critical factors. At Jim Glaser Law, we consider each aspect of your situation to determine the best course of action. We offer free case reviews in which a Boston tobacco lawyer gives you a better understanding of your situation before you decide what next steps to take. Here are some of the factors we examine:

Tobacco use is linked to a wide array of cancers, including but not limited to:

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer and have a history of tobacco use, you may be eligible to pursue legal action against tobacco companies.

Those seeking to file a lawsuit must have started smoking before 1985. This time frame is significant because it is the period before more stringent regulations and warnings were applied to tobacco products.

During this time, tobacco companies engaged in highly controversial marketing tactics, including the distribution of free cigarette samples to minors, aiming to cultivate a new generation of smokers without fully disclosing the health risks associated with smoking.

In these legal cases, it is also helpful to have a documented history of attempts to quit smoking, preferably with a doctor’s assistance. This documentation can significantly strengthen a case by illustrating the individual’s ongoing struggle with nicotine addiction and the subsequent health consequences directly linked to smoking.

In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations for filing a tobacco lawsuit mandates action within 3 years of the cancer or COPD diagnosis. Timeliness is necessary to ensure your case is heard and appropriately compensated.
