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.
