As a full-service law firm, Hill Ward Henderson caters to the needs of clients
spanning a broad range of industries and professions. With over 100 attorneys, the
scope of practice areas we provide is vast, with much depth and “bench strength”
among both transactional and litigation disciplines.
Our Tobacco Team defends cigarette manufacturers against personal injury claims brought by individual smokers, as well as wrongful death claims brought by the estates of deceased smokers. These claims involve a wide range of legal theories and allegations including: negligence, strict liability, breach of express and implied warranty, fraudulent concealment and conspiracy to fraudulently conceal material health information over the past 50 plus years.
The defense of these claims involves complex legal issues, as well as detailed scientific knowledge regarding product design and the manufacturing process. Our attorneys routinely work with medical and scientific experts throughout the country in defending against these claims. Our Tobacco Team has successfully defended against these claims across the state of Florida, in both state and federal court, and is well equipped to defend these cases through discovery, trial, and appeal.
