Join KCIC’s Elizabeth Hanke and Megan Shockley as they pinpoint actionable insights with an in-depth look at the current state of asbestos litigation nationwide and a deep dive into how epidemiological data and models like Nicholson are predicting not only mesothelioma, but lung cancer diagnoses and subsequent lawsuits.

Plaintiff exposure attributes that will affect the future of this litigation:
Date of first exposure trends, secondary vs. primary exposure trends, male vs. female

Epidemiological data and models used for predicting future asbestos cases:
Mesothelioma and lung cancer incidence rates from SEER and CDC data
Nicholson model projections
How asbestos filings compare to incidence rates over time

External factors that can affect a defendant’s experience:
Publicity
Bad Verdicts
