It was known to be an excellent fire retardant, to have high electrical resistance, and was inexpensive and easy to use.

Because of the size of the fibers, the lungs cannot expel them.These fibers are also sharp and penetrate internal tissues. Health problems attributed to asbestos include: 1. Asbestosis - A lung disease first found in textile workers,asbestosis is a scarring of the lung tissue resulting from the production of growth factors that stimulate fibroblasts (the scar-producing lung cells) to proliferate and synthesize the scar tissue in response to injury by the inhaled fibers. The scarring may eventually become so severe that the lungs can no longer function. The latency period (meaning the time it takes for the disease to develop) is often 10–20 years...

1. When an asbestos lawsuitis filed, it will be assigned a settlement conference date and perhaps a trial date, depending on the jurisdiction. The settlement conference date might be anywhere from a few months to a year after the filing of the case, depending upon the court's routine procedures. At the settlement conference, the attorneys for each side will tell the judge if they think the case is ready to be assigned a trial date. If the case is not ready, it will be assigned a future settlement conference date. When the case is ready for trial, it will be assigned a trial date, likely anywhere from six months to a year later. The trial date is important. Even though most cases don't actually go to trial, having a trial date sets a deadline for how long the discovery process will be, when expert reports are due, when witness lists must be exchanged, and so on. It also provides a trigger for settlements, many of which will occur at the last minute before going before a trial judge.
