In this wrongful death action, we are asked to determine whether sufficient evidence was presented to establish a causal connection between decedents six-month exposure to an asbestos product manufactured by defendant and the decedents subsequent development of lung cancer. We are also asked to consider the propriety of the trial courts refusal to accept the jurys finding that decedent was fifty-five percent negligent due to his heavy and sustained use of cigarettes.
