Leading the Fight For Children
With Serious Birth Defects
Thornton Law Firm represents children and families across the country
in cases where parental chemical exposure has led to a child’s birth
defect. The firm was one of the first to bring birth defect cases involving
exposure to toxic substances in the workplace or the home.
Advocating For Victims Of
Mesothelioma And Asbestos Disease
Thornton Law Firm is New England’s first, largest and most successful
mesothelioma law firm. Over the last 36 years, we have represented
thousands of victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related
diseases, and their families. We have regularly achieved settlements
and verdicts in excess of $1 million for our clients, and won the largest
verdict ever awarded in a Massachusetts asbestos trial. In 1982
Thornton Law Firm was assigned by the Massachusetts Federal Court to
be coordinating counsel for all plaintiffs; since 1992 the firm has served
the Massachusetts Superior Court as plaintiffs’ liaison for all asbestos
litigation in the Massachusetts state courts.
Innovating Solutions For
Health Care Coverage Providers
Thornton Law Firm is a pioneer in providing subrogation solutions for
major health care coverage providers. Leveraging our pharmaceutical,
medical device and personal injury experience, we support ongoing
efforts to achieve full recoveries for the injured and those
that provide their care.
Standing Up For Public And Private Pensions
And Victims Of Financial Fraud
Thornton Law Firm represents public and private pension funds, states,
employees and unions in several areas of financial fraud litigation. The firm’s
cases have already changed the way large financial companies do business,
improving transparency and lowering costs.
Helping Those Injured By
Defective Drugs And Medical Devices
Our drug and medical device team has decades of experience representing
those injured by the pharmaceutical and medical device industry. We
represent clients in a full range of cases covering nearly all active multidistrict
litigations in the United States.
In False Claims Act Cases
Federal and state False Claims Act laws are powerful tools against
corporate wrongdoing and fraud and they provide a substantial reward for
whistleblowers. Our experienced litigation team helps whistleblowers bring
fraud to light.
Recovering Insurance Overcharges For Employers
In addition to fighting insurance companies on behalf of individual plaintiffs,
Thornton Law Firm has brought groundbreaking cases against workers’
compensation insurers for overcharging employers. We filed class action
suits after exposing a scheme by insurers to overcharge employers for post-accident workers’ compensation premium increases when the insurer has
nonetheless recovered some or all of the money they paid out on the claim.
