Long Tailed Claims – Exposure To TCE and PCEOften long tailed claims are thought to be limited to exposure to asbestos, hearing loss, etc. Whilst this is true, there may be other things which will be discovered which are contributing to long tailed claims (claims which do not show their symptoms until several years after the initial exposure). Trichlorothylene (often referred to as TCE, Trichlor, Tricky, Tri and Trike) and Tetrachloroethylene (PCE) has been used in gas anesthetic from the 1930’s to 1970’s, dry cleaning solvent and a degreaser for metal parts. An International study in 2011 has found a link to exposure to a neurologic syndrome resembling parkinsons disease.
