Negligence: Exposure to Asbestos-Causation

Where the family of a man who died from asbestosis sued the manufacturer of asbestos-containing boilers, which the man inspected as part of his job, the summary judgment record presented a genuine dispute to be decided by a jury as to the material facts involved in causation on the issues of exposure and the substantial factor analysis, so the judgment for the defendant is reversed and remanded.

Judgment is reversed and remanded.
