    Learn about the issues affecting lead paint, asbestos, and Chinese drywall litigation cases with this book. Written from both the plaintiff and defense perspective, the guide offers the nuts and bolts of defending a case and a state-by-state summary for comparison and the future of each of these unique litigation issues. It also includes strategies for the defense when trying a case and identifies issues that often arise or should be considered when prosecuting.

    The Lawyer's Guide to Lead Paint, Asbestos and Chinese Drywall dissects each of the three subjects in detail. Find the history of cases, associated diseases and the types of defendants that will play a role in the claim, as well as guidance on how to find expert witnesses to testify. Topics include:

    Lead Paint: Inspection and testing methods for lead paint are thoroughly covered. In addition, the book provides detailed information on the sources of childhood lead exposure and a chart from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control citing recommendations for children with elevated blood lead levels.

    Asbestos: Specific information on physical injury and loss of use of tangible property is found in the chapters on asbestos, as well as "trigger of coverage" principals and how they differ from other triggers. The types of asbestos exclusions explored include: employers liability; property damage; ongoing work; impaired property; pollution; and sistership, among others.

    Chinese Drywall: With up to a quarter million homes constructed using Chinese drywall from 2004 to 2008, this area of litigation is ever-growing. Whether a class action or individual suit, this book will aid in detailing each type of claim.
