Many different trades are critical to the successful completion of a construction project. Skilled workers often work on multiple projects and multiple sites in Massachusetts throughout their careers. Unfortunately, many of these construction workers were exposed to asbestos during their work, especially on projects completed before 1980. Because asbestos-related diseases can take decades to surface, many construction workers may just now be experiencing symptoms of mesothelioma. Our mission is to get these affected workers the compensation they deserve by holding the responsible parties accountable.

Our clients include: Plumbers, pipefitters, insulators, electricians, boilermakers, carpenters, welders, flooring installers, roofers, sheet metal workers, and plaster, drywall, and ceiling installers, as well as the laborers and maintenance workers who carried bags of asbestos and asbestos insulation products and swept up the asbestos-containing dust.

These clients have worked at a wide variety of asbestos-containing job sites around Massachusetts, including General Electric, MeadWestvaco, Boston Edison facilities, the Prudential Center, the John Hancock Building, the State Street Building, Wyman Gorman, American Optical, and many other commercial, industrial and health care facilities erected in the 1950s-1970s.
