Asbestos Liability and Valuation At A Glance

Capabilities and Services

Experts in NERA's Product Liability and Mass Torts Practice have been analyzing issues related to asbestos litigation for almost 20 years, working for more than 80 defendants or their insurers. NERA experts bring together the required disciplines -- including economics, statistics, accounting, epidemiological modeling, computer programming, and insurance modeling -- to address the most complex problems of assessment and valuation of asbestos liability claims. Our work is used in a variety of contexts:

  • Valuing liabilities related to commercial damages or other litigation
  • Projecting liabilities to establish or assess reserves
  • Forecasting potential liability for insurance buy-backs
  • Valuing bankruptcy trusts
  • Informing merger due diligence
  • Developing claims databases
  • Tracking litigation trends
