Massachusetts Attorneys Champion Workers Injured by Solvents

Focusing on benzene and other toxic substance occupational diseases

Workers across the country are exposed every day to toxic substances that pose severe health risks.  Many times, workers are unaware of their peril until it is too late.

Thornton Law Firm’ toxic tort practice represents workers with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL) who were exposed to benzene contained in petroleum-based solvents.  We have successfully resolved a number of these cases in Massachusetts and other jurisdictions. These cases have involved offset printers, mechanics and other workers exposed to benzene.

The firm has also litigated cases involving exposure to other toxic substances found primarily in solvents used in a variety of industries, from aircraft engine and automobile manufacturing to oil refineries and precision parts manufacturing. These toxic tort cases involve exposure to such substances as—

  • Arsenic
  • Beryllium
  • Glycol ethers
  • Methylene chloride
  • Perchloroethylene
  • Radiation
  • Trichloroethylene
  • Toluene
  • Xylene

Our successful litigation in the toxic tort arena has included products liability and negligence claims on behalf of:

  • Defense industry workers suffering from beryllium disease
  • Workers with liver failure from exposure to brake cleaning solvents
  • Brain cancer victims who were exposed to radiation at a nuclear power plant.
