Mr. Morton is an attorney whose work focuses on the representation of individuals who have suffered injuries as a result of exposure to asbestos and other toxic substances. His practice is focused in asbestos and mesothelioma litigation, FELA cases, personal injury, and automobile accidents.
In January 2010, Matt Morton and John Comerford were counsel for a trial in Buffalo, New York, and obtained a $900,000 settlement award on behalf of our client, a local electrician, for injuries resulting from exposure to asbestos on the job.
In July 2010, Mr. Morton was involved in the preparation and settlement of a case for $325,000, in which the plaintiff, age 76, was involved in a motor vehicle accident with a tractor trailer.
