Although safety protocols have increased dramatically over the last few decades with regards to the handling and insulation of asbestos related materials, for many victims exposure to the deadly mineral occurred well before then.

Time may be a factor so it is important for victims to turn to an experienced asbestos personal injury attorney expert here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates who have decades of experience fighting for the rights of our Massachusetts based clients.

A Superior Court jury in Boston, Massachusetts recently returned a verdict of $6.8 million dollars against New England Insulation, a Canton, Massachusetts company that distributed and installed asbestos insulation material until the early 1970s.

His widow, Amy Ross, pursued this case individually and on behalf of his estate.

Justice, a retail chain for girls, announced that it has stopped selling a highlighter powder after it was reported that the product contained the toxic substance asbestos, among others. The powder allegedly contains asbestos and toxic heavy metals such as asbarium, chromium, selenium, and lead. The FDA prohibits the sale of contaminated makeup products, including makeup that contains asbestos, which have been linked to cancer and tumors. After the report was released, Justice pulled the product from its shelves and began conducting its own investigation into the matter. It has since continuously been denying these allegations. The retailer claims a third-party ISO-certified testing lab tested the product and determined that there is no asbestos in the Just Shine Shimmer Powder.
