with all the funds going to people who have been made ill by large companies, why are there no funds for people like me and so many others that have COPD and those that have cancer from smoking. My life (if you want to call it that) is controlled by where I can get my oxygen tube to. Many of us started at a very young age when all the facts of smoking were kept hidden. I started at 13 years old . I am now 73 and have been refused operations that I need because of the COPD.

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

You can still sue the tobacco companies if you can prove that smoking caused your medical conditions. The state attorney general tobacco settlement funds are designated for use for paying for medical programs and for quit smoking programs, but those funds are not to compensate victims of smoking, for that the smokers have to sue the tobacco companies for their specific damages.

So you can get a local attorney to sue the companies for product liability and for costs of your care and pain and suffering.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Should I contact an attorney? I am a resident of Florida, a
I am a resident of Florida, a very youthful and active 77 year old independent widow who lives alone. I was at my kitchen sink preparing to feed my cat and when I turned to bend down to pick up her bowl, my Reef sandal picked up the area rug which came up and connected to the bottom of my sandal and I fell very hard on my backside on the kitchen floor. I have worn the flip flop sandals for 15 years and was going to go to the pool at my condo to swim following breakfast. The reef sandle has a bottle opener in the soles and as I turned it looped into a loop of the area rug (which was fairly new). I never thought the carpet would be a problem as I don't go barefoot and a toe wouldn't enter one of these loops. Both products however should be taken off the market and consequently I will be healing for many months at a minimum. I fractured my pelvis and my sacrum in the fall, resulting in extreme pain since the fall on March 4 and was transferred on March 7 from Palm Beach Gardens Med. Center to the Gardens Court and expected to be here for rehabilitation for several more weeks. Please tell me the action I should take for this setback in my life and how you suggest I proceed.
