Japanese Company Voluntarily Pays Asbestos Claimant

I’m often told that asbestos litigation is essentially just a U.S. issue because our culture is said to be so litigious. However, even the reputedly nonlitigious Japanese culture has produced asbestos claims and payments. A Japanese website reports that a Japanese corporation recently voluntarily paid compensation to a person claiming to suffer from mesothelioma. The claimant was aided by a victim’s rights group based in Japan. The victim worked at a manufacturing plant reported to have used crocidolite fibers.
