The March 11 issue of BNA, Inc.'s Toxics Law Reporter features an article on medical monitoring claims written by Boston partners Jonathan Handler and Bill Rogers, along with New Jersey associate Florice Engler. The authors focus on a recent landmark decision in which the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court held that claims for medical monitoring expense damages are valid under Massachusetts law where the plaintiff has sustained subcellular changes due to hazardous substance exposure that substantially increases an individual's risk of serious disease, illness, or injury.
