Mesothelioma is a disease of the industrialized world that has struck Americans in every state, including in Massachusetts. The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos, a material used in many manufactured products and work environments since the late 1800s. Since the 1930s, medical researchers have been spreading the news that asbestos exposure has resulted in development of mesothelioma for many unfortunate sufferers of the disease.
The Difficult Road Ahead After Developing Mesothelioma
If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you and your family are probably already acutely aware of the expenses and losses that you face. You will need to pay for medical treatment. You will most likely be unable to work for long periods of time. Your future will feel uncertain for a long time, since there is no known cure for mesothelioma.
At Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, we believe that you deserve a fighting chance at a decent quality of life for as long as possible. This is what mesothelioma litigation aims to accomplish: to provide people who have been exposed to asbestos and later developed this terrible disease with the resources needed to cope with this challenging outcome.

We are prepared to work hard to determine when and where you were likely exposed to asbestos while living or working in Massachusetts. This information can pave the way to a successful claim for compensation for you and your family in Boston, Worcester, Springfield, Lowell, Cambridge or anywhere in the state.
Determination Of When And Where You Were Exposed To Asbestos
If we represent you, we will examine your work history and compare it to documentation of job sites known to have posed hazards of asbestos exposure over your lifetime. You may have exposed to asbestos in a building that was constructed using tiles or pipes contaminated with this dangerous substance. Or you may have worked directly with asbestos-riddled materials in a manufacturing or industrial environment.
Mesothelioma cases in Massachusetts run the gamut of a great variety of circumstances by which people have been exposed to asbestos. You may have been working in a hospital, university, financial institution, research facility, commercial fishing facility, food processing plant, tobacco product manufacturing facility, shoe factory, textile factory, pharmaceutical manufacturing facility, or a printing or publishing establishment. You may have been exposed to asbestos while overseas in the military after being deployed from a base in Massachusetts or elsewhere in the U.S. You may have experienced secondhand exposure by way of a family member who worked in a hazardous work environment, bringing home asbestos fibers in his or her hair or embedded in clothing.
