The “Third wave” of asbestos disease

Australia is currently experiencing a so called “third wave” of asbestos disease.

The first wave involved people who contracted diseases from milling raw asbestos and manufacturing products containing asbvetsos. The second wave were people who used asbestos products in industry.

The third wave is people who had small exposures, often as a result of home renovations. I have written a number of articles about the legal implications of third wave cases. The articles are attached below.
