Illinois News Network recently cited KCIC's midyear asbestos litigation update in a story about Illinois' legal landscape and how the state's lawsuit-friendly policies cost billions of dollars and more than 80,000 jobs every year:
"Liability consulting firm KCIC said in a September report that the number of asbestos and mesothelioma cases in Illinois – big money in the tort litigation world where Illinois is seen as a national leader in those cases – dropped significantly in recent months in the state and the rest of the nation."
KCIC's midyear asbestos litigation update provides a summary of filings through June 30 this year (received as of July 31, 2018). Overall, KCIC saw a downward trend in asbestos filings so far in 2018. KCIC will share full-year findings in its 2018 Asbestos Litigation Report, due to be published in the first quarter of 2019.
