New Mexico Tobacco Injury Cases
Companies throughout the industry have concealed the truth about nicotine addiction, marketing their products to children to get them addicted for life despite the well-known risks. Data shows that, in 2021 alone, healthcare costs related to smoking in New Mexico totaled more than $980 million. This has led to many tobacco-related injuries and illnesses in the state.
In addition to the physical harm caused by tobacco use, financial and emotional costs are associated with these injuries and illnesses. Many people who suffer from tobacco-related injuries and illnesses face significant medical expenses, lost wages, and other financial burdens. They may also experience emotional distress and a diminished quality of life.
