LRANY Video Series: Ridiculous Lawsuit of the Month – November 2013

Epidemiological research predicted that cases of asbestos related diseases would peak years ago and begin to decline – yet the lawsuits have only increased, and in recent years, there has been shocking evidence of fraud.  To date, approximately 100 companies have been bankrupted by asbestos related liability, and the number of trusts has grown from 16 to 60 in the past 11 years.
