Attorney Awards


Bradley M. Henry is a trial lawyer specializing in wrongful death, catastrophic personal injury and commercial property loss cases. In 2013, Henry won a verdict of $63 million (with interest, $112.9M), together with his law partners Leo Boyle and Michael Bogdanow, against a global
pharmaceutical giant for devastating adverse drug reactions -- SJS and TEN -- suffered by a child.

Henry joined MBBB in 1989 as a law clerk to Peter Black in aviation defense matters. After graduating Suffolk Law in 1991, he primarily defended airlines, aircraft manufacturers and aviation interests in federal court, before transitioning exclusively to plaintiffs' work. Henry’s practice has included plane crashes, mid-air collisions, complex product and weapons cases, refinery explosions, mass shooting tragedies, hazing deaths, building / bridge / tunnel and other construction collapses, MBTA, railroad and other transportation disasters, electrocutions and gas explosions as well as nursing home and pharmaceutical cases. From 2006 to 2008, he served as Plaintiffs’ Liaison Counsel in Boston's “Big Dig” tunnel ceiling collapse case of DelValle v. Bechtel, a products- and construction-related wrongful death case that ultimately settled with fifteen defendants for $28.1 million. Henry speaks regularly at seminars and conferences around the country on media, the law and handling high-profile cases.
