Insurance Industry Weighs in on the Future of Asbestos Liabilities

On November 19th, Innovative Science Solutions and two partner organizations – Assured Research and the LSP Group – delivered a webinar sponsored by SNL Knowledge Center, titled: New Science and Law in Asbestos Litigation

In this webinar, we explored recent developments affecting asbestos liabilities drawing from our New Science and Law in Asbestos Litigation report released this past summer. Bringing together views from the legal, scientific/medical, and actuarial professions our team painted a sobering picture of this legacy liability that won’t go away.

After the webinar, we polled the group — a combination of insurance company executives, accountants and regulators — on a number of topics that will be of interest to anyone litigating asbestos cases.

We provide the results of that poll below.

Science Will Have a Major Impact on Asbestos Litigation Trends

Asbestos Liabilities Will Continue to Rise at Existing or an Accelerated Pace

 

“Other Cancer” Claims Will Be of Most Concern to Insurers
