Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Yes you can sue the tobacco companies for your disease and you would need your doctors to testify that your COPD was caused by the smoking. IF the doctors do say that your COPD was caused by the smoking, then there is a huge chance of settlement, because the tobacco companies do not want to go back to court on these costly litigation cases.
