Now a leading injury law firm in Massachusetts and the largest plaintiff law firm in New England, the firm has 21 attorneys representing thousands of clients in a wide variety of plaintiff-side work. Experience in complex litigation over the last four decades has led to the firm’s involvement in cases of local and national importance and recognition as one of the exceptional Massachusetts personal injury law firms.
Congratulations to the International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Asbestos Workers Local 6, Boston, MA on the occasion of their 25th annual retirees’ luncheon held at The Lantana, Randolph, MA on August 21, 2019. Thornton Law Firm was honored to be on hand to celebrate and reminisce with retirees and their loved ones.
The jury found that it was more likely than not that Johnson & Johnson’s Shower to Shower and Colgate’s Cashmere Bouquet talc powders contained the carcinogen asbestos, and that the asbestos in those powders caused Schmitz’s cancer.
The jury rejected J&J claims that there was no asbestos in its powders. Instead, the jury found the company had been aware of the presence of asbestos in talcum powder for decades, yet had failed to warn consumers.
