Asbestos Exposure and the Law in the United States
This chapter discusses the historical development of asbestos litigation and the current state of relevant legal affairs in the United States. Depending on one's vantage point, the history of asbestos-related lawsuits reveals either a series of unwitting failures to understand the gravity of the problem, or a knowing disregard and avoidance of the health concerns faced by workers and their families. Whether it is lack of knowledge or reckless disregard, responsibility for fault has become the paramount issue for assigning blame during American trials involving asbestos exposure and disease.
