Since the 1960s it has been widely known that inhaling asbestos dust can cause debilitating and terminal illnesses such as asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.
Despite this, many employers continued to use asbestos in the workplace. Asbestos products were used in building and other industries without any warning being given, or steps being taken to protect employees or members of the public from the dangers of inhaling asbestos dust. This can give rise to a claim in negligence against the party responsible for the exposure.
