    Tobacco Industry Law Suit
    My wife's father died of lung cancer at the early age of 55 back in the 1970's. He was a heavy smoker for years.
    My own father recently died at that age of 88 and was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer due to smoking. He also was a heavy smoker for several years.

    I remember that several years ago the Tobacco industry was sued by the Federal government and I believe the tobacco industry was ordered to set aside millions of dollars to cover lawsuits by victims and families of victims.

    I am wondering if there was any kind of statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit against the tobacco industry and also how to go about filing a lawsuit.

    I have done research on line about this but cannot seem to locate any real information concerning my questions.

    I'm wondering if there are any attorneys out there that see this site that can advise me regarding this issue.

    Thank you.

    SOL laws vary from state to state but finding an actual attorney who specializes in tobacco litigation, or product liability in your town/state would have the answers you need. Google those lawyers and see if a call/text/email or chat can guide you to answers.
