Following decades of rapid industrialization and economic expansion, businesses and their insurers found that many of the business decisions and practices of the past created unanticipated legal risks and costs in the present and the future. Some of the most problematic were environmental and toxic tort risks that might not reveal themselves for years or decades, including asbestos, lead, pollution, mold and more. These kinds of cases present additional difficulties related to loss of evidence due to the amount of time that often passes between a business decision and alleged ensuing damage.
