KCIC, a Washington, DC-based consultancy, today announced the release of its fourth annual Asbestos Litigation Year in Review report, which provides an in depth analysis of asbestos-related personal injury through year end 2018.
This is the fourth year that KCIC has published this report and it is the most comprehensive to date. The 2018 analysis gives a detailed look at how asbestos litigation has changed over the years and provides insights into the trends currently driving this litigation. The report analyzes statistics based on disease, jurisdiction, and plaintiff firm, while also diving into alternative exposure types and looking at filings by gender, resident state, etc. KCIC has also included a detailed look at the effects of personal jurisdiction rulings and bankruptcy trust transparency legislation, while also diving into talc litigation, alternative exposures, and other trends to forecast the future of this litigation.
Megan Shockley, Senior Manager at KCIC, said, “We are constantly mining our complaint data for trends and it’s always exciting to share this information. We hope that by keeping abreast of these trends, we can help our clients make more informed strategic decisions to better manage their liabilities.”
The report, which was previewed at this year’s Perrin Cutting-Edge Issues in Asbestos Litigation Conference in March, is now available for download. This year, the company will also be presenting the information via webinar for a more in-depth dive into the data.
