Abstract

Following the recent decision in the case of Heneghan v Manchester Dry Docks Ltd that a claimant succeeds in an asbestos related lung cancer claim where they can show defendants materially increased the risk of lung cancer occurring, this article considers the current state of the law and availability of compensation through statutory schemes, and looks at the different approach taken by Australian courts in developing the law in this area.
