MIAMI, June 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reports today that tobacco lawsuits are ongoing, with plaintiffs winning this time around. Lawsuits against the tobacco industry and tobacco companies first began in the 1950's, however, tobacco companies successfully defended most of the lawsuits. In the 80's, another wave of lawsuits came, but again were fought off by the tobacco industry. However, in 2006, the Florida Supreme Court found that the tobacco industry was liable for injuries and deaths related to smoking, and the ruling allowed smokers, and their family members, to file individual suits. The tobacco industry sought to overturn the ruling, but the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the series of appeals, bringing good news for plaintiffs and their family members who hope to file suit against tobacco companies.
While the plaintiffs' side is finally winning this time around, pending cases can take years to be resolved. Due to that, Legal-Bay is announcing their readiness to aid victims, and their family members, with lawsuit funding while they await their ultimate settlements.
Patty Kirby, COO and Head of Client Relations, commented on the company's focus of pre-settlement funding on tobacco cases, "We have secured large institutional funding dollars to aggressively fund tobacco cases, even though payments can be drawn out or even reversed by a court later. Our non-recourse tobacco lawsuit pre-settlement funding enables plaintiffs to receive cash at no risk, meaning they do not have to repay the funds if their settlement goes away."
Legal-Bay, a lawsuit money firm, is committed to aiding victims involved in such cases, as well as funding many tobacco verdicts that are on appeal by the defendants.
