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. A problematic aspect of asbestos exposure is that you may not have any symptoms from the exposure for years, all the while that potentially cancerous diseases may already be in your body. 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. Former Massachusetts insulator Timothy Ross passed away due to mesothelioma, an asbestos-related cancer, on Aug. 19, 2013. His widow, Amy Ross, pursued this case individually and on behalf of his estate.
This is the second multi-million-dollar verdict in two weeks for the Thornton Law Firm and co-counsel Waters & Kraus against New England Insulation. A week earlier, on Sept. 21, 2017, another Boston jury returned a verdict of $7.55 million for Gerald Sylvestre, a former New Hampshire power plant worker currently undergoing treatment for mesothelioma.
