Family of Deceased is Awarded $150 Million in Smoking Lawsuit

There is a long history of personal injury and wrongful death litigation, in New Jersey and across the country, against cigarette manufacturers and marketers in regards to deaths caused by lung cancer and similar diseases, in which the deceased was a long-time smoker. More often than not, these lawsuits are not successful. However, after allegations that a cigarette manufacturer provided free cigarettes to young children during the 1950s and 1960s, starting a now-deceased woman's lifelong smoking habit, a Massachusetts jury found the cigarette company liable for her illness and death, awarding over $150 million to her son.
