Asbestos diagnosis made 37 years after death

The 1966 death certificate of an insulation worker attributes his death to stomach cancer, but 37 years later experts associated with the Manville Trust posthumously diagnosed him as having been suffering from mesothelioma, the asbestos-linked cancer. The trust awarded him compensation and his survivors then sued other defendants. [Kirk Hartley at Global Tort, which has just been rehosted as a LexBlog site]
