Once a rarity, take-home asbestos claims are now commonplace, resulting in an increase in the number of multimillion-dollar awards. Take-home claims are those asserted on behalf of claimants that have never set foot on the premises or used the product at issue, but allegedly were exposed to asbestos through their spouses or others who brought it home on their work clothing. Such claims are brought against premises owners, product manufacturers and suppliers. In this sixth annual jurisdictional update, Carter Strang, Karen Ross, and Madeline Dennis address premises, products liability, and contractor claims state by state as of October 15, 2015.
