Findlay, OH asked in Medical Malpractice and Products Liability for Ohio

Q: My father was a smoker. He smoked cigarettes, cigars and a pipe, which caused my premature birth.

I am convinced that my father's smoking also caused the deaths of my unborn siblings. My mother had twins and two other siblings who died stillborn.

Because of my prematurity, I have had vision problems due to too much oxygen used in the incubator.

Could I pursue this in a lawsuit against tobacco companies and against the hospital?
