Types of Cases Our Tobacco Lawsuit Attorneys Represent

The use of tobacco and other nicotine products, whether regular or flavored, is a long-standing cause of lung cancer. Yet, tobacco companies and manufacturers continue to sell these products to consumers using hazardous materials, false advertising, and violations of consumer protection statutes. Tobacco companies have historically marketed to young and impressionable consumers, and have manipulated the amount of nicotine in cigarettes to achieve the greatest chance of initiating and sustaining addiction in smokers.

At Shepard O’Donnell, our tobacco lawsuit attorneys will hold them accountable for their negligent actions if you or your family member lives in Massachusetts and is suffering from or has died of lung cancer from smoking.

The increased risk of developing health problems is exponential because cigarette smoking is hazardous to your health, and nicotine is a highly-addictive drug often used over decades. If you were diagnosed with lung cancer related to cigarette smoking, you deserve compensation for your health care expenses, lost wages, and more when a tobacco or cigarette company violates your rights.

Depending on the facts and circumstances, an experienced tobacco attorney can help you get compensation under the following areas of Massachusetts personal injury laws:

  • Negligence
  • Product Liability
  • Failure to Warn
  • Wrongful Death
  • Fraud
  • Deceptive Practices

A Massachusetts tobacco lawyer will help you determine which laws apply to your case and how. Shepard O’Donnell will also fully investigate your injuries and help you preserve all admissible, related evidence. You do not have to settle for an amount that is less than what you deserve.

Compensation Is Available for Victims in Massachusetts

The costs of treating tobacco-related injuries or suffering from a family member’s death are insurmountable for many people. State and federal laws protect consumers and survivors in your situation by allowing you to file a financial claim equivalent to the losses or damages you experienced.

While every legal situation is unique, the tobacco lawsuit attorneys at Shepard O’Donnell have successfully recovered millions in civil awards that have helped our clients pay for:

  • Current and future healthcare expenses
  • Current and future lost earnings and benefits
  • Physical pain and suffering and mental anguish
  • Wrongful death awards for surviving family members
  • Lost enjoyment of life
  • Punitive damages for gross acts of negligence
  • And other awards as recoverable

Allow an experienced and compassionate tobacco lawsuit attorney on our legal team to evaluate your specific situation to provide you with clarity and direction regarding your options. Cigarette and tobacco companies willfully choose to place profits over people. Shepard O’Donnell will stand by your side throughout the entire claims or civil court process while holding these companies accountable for their careless and reckless actions.


There is a statute of limitations for most injury matters that affects the timeline by which you have to file a tobacco lawsuit in Massachusetts. If you miss this civil deadline, you forfeit your right to an insurance settlement or civil litigation award. The general statute of limitations for Massachusetts is up to three (3) years from the date your injuries were discovered or from your family member’s death.


If you missed this civil deadline, you typically forfeit your right to an insurance settlement or civil litigation award. Even if you think you missed Massachusetts’ statute of limitations, it is still worth speaking with a tobacco lawsuit attorney. We can review the facts of your case to establish which deadline applies to your case and if you still have time or fall under certain statutory exceptions. Rely on Shepard O’Donnell to consider every legal opportunity available to you.
