    Round Three: California Appellate Courts Home in on Duty of Care in Household Asbestos Exposure

    Duty of Care in Second-hand Asbestos Exposure

    July 1, 2014

    A recent decision by the California Court of Appeal for the Second District holds that a landowner owes no duty of care to a third party who was exposed to asbestos through a person who worked on the landowner's premises, where the only cause of action is for premises liability. This decision came just over two weeks after the First District held that an employer owed a duty of care to a third party for exposure to asbestos through contact with its employee where the foreseeability of harm was substantial, based on negligence and products liability.

    Duty of Care to Third Party for Exposure to Asbestos

    June 3, 2014

    In weighing the foreseeability of harm as a significant factor, the California Court of Appeal found that there is a high degree of foreseeability of harm from take-home asbestos exposure to those whose contact with an employer's workers is not merely incidental, such as members of their household or long-term occupants of the residence.”
