As recent events in the financial world so dramatically illustrate, effective and consistent regulation affects the global economy, helping to determine whether people enjoy any financial stability in their everyday lives. This occurs due to fraud, negligent misrepresentation, and interference with contract.
At the same time, tort law has been reluctant to interfere when the parties are in a contractual relationship and the risk of loss has been or could have been addressed by agreement of the parties in their contract.
Thus, when the only harm caused is economic loss, such as lost profits, identity theft, a loss of an inheritance, the benefit of the bargain in a contract, an opportunity to start a new business, or a product that does not perform as it should have, tort law has been very restrictive about providing relief, leaving most of such harm to contract law or uncompensated.

In attempting to stop the leak, the MIC supervisor suffered severe chemical burns and two other workers were severely exposed to the gases. During and , there were leaks of MIC, chlorine, monomethylamine, phosgene, and carbon tetrachloride , sometimes in combination.
E, E, and E In the months leading up to the December leak, liquid MIC production was in progress and being used to fill these tanks. Each tank was pressurized with inert nitrogen gas. This pressurization allowed liquid MIC to be pumped out of each tank as needed, and also kept impurities out of the tanks. In late October , tank E lost the ability to effectively contain most of its nitrogen gas pressure.
It meant that the liquid MIC contained within could not be pumped out. At the time of this failure, tank E contained 42 tons of liquid MIC. Maintenance included the shutdown of the plant's flare tower so that a corroded pipe could be repaired. An attempt to re-establish pressure in tank E on 1 December failed, so the 42 tons of liquid MIC contained within still could not be pumped out of it. In early December , most of the plant's MIC related safety systems were malfunctioning and many valves and lines were in poor condition.
In addition, several vent gas scrubbers had been out of service as well as the steam boiler, intended to clean the pipes. Two different senior refinery employees assumed the reading was instrumentation malfunction.
One was found by The decision was made to address the problem after a The incident was discussed by MIC area employees during the break. In the five minutes after the tea break ended at One employee witnessed a concrete slab above tank E crack as the emergency relief valve burst open, and pressure in the tank continued to increase to 55 psi About 30 metric tons of MIC escaped from the tank into the atmosphere in 45 to 60 minutes. A UCIL employee triggered the plant's alarm system at The two siren systems had been decoupled from one another in , so that it was possible to leave the factory warning siren on while turning off the public one, and this is exactly what was done: Finally, they received an updated report that it was "MIC" rather than "methyl isocyanate" , which hospital staff had never heard of, had no antidote for, and received no immediate information about.
The MIC gas leak emanating from tank E petered out at approximately 2: Fifteen minutes later, the plant's public siren was sounded for an extended period of time, after first having been quickly silenced an hour and a half earlier. The initial effects of exposure were coughing, severe eye irritation and a feeling of suffocation, burning in the respiratory tract, blepharospasm , breathlessness, stomach pains and vomiting.
People awakened by these symptoms fled away from the plant. Those who ran inhaled more than those who had a vehicle to ride. Owing to their height, children and other people of shorter stature inhaled higher concentrations, as methyl isocyanate gas is approximately twice as dense as air and hence in an open environment has a tendency to fall toward the ground.
Primary causes of deaths were choking , reflexogenic circulatory collapse and pulmonary oedema. Findings during autopsies revealed changes not only in the lungs but also cerebral oedema , tubular necrosis of the kidneys, fatty degeneration of the liver and necrotising enteritis. Apart from MIC, based on laboratory simulation conditions, the gas cloud most likely also contained chloroform , dichloromethane , hydrogen chloride , methyl amine , dimethylamine , trimethylamine and carbon dioxide , that was either present in the tank or was produced in the storage tank when MIC, chloroform and water reacted.
The gas cloud, composed mainly of materials denser than air, stayed close to the ground and spread in the southeasterly direction affecting the nearby communities. In the immediate aftermath, the plant was closed to outsiders including UCC by the Indian government , which subsequently failed to make data public, contributing to the confusion.
Upon arrival Anderson was placed under house arrest and urged by the Indian government to leave the country within 24 hours. Union Carbide organized a team of international medical experts, as well as supplies and equipment, to work with the local Bhopal medical community, and the UCC technical team began assessing the cause of the gas leak. The health care system immediately became overloaded. In the severely affected areas, nearly 70 percent were under-qualified doctors.
Medical staff were unprepared for the thousands of casualties. Doctors and hospitals were not aware of proper treatment methods for MIC gas inhalation. There were mass funerals and cremations. Photographer Pablo Bartholemew , on commission with press agency Rapho , took an iconic color photograph of a burial on December 4, Bhopal gas disaster girl.
Another photographer present, Raghu Rai , took a black and white photo. The photographers did not ask for the identity of the father or child as she was buried, and no relative has since confirmed it. As such, the identity of the girl remains unknown. Both photos became symbolic of the suffering of victims of the Bhopal disaster, and Bartholomew's went on to win the World Press Photo of the Year.
Within a few days, trees in the vicinity became barren and bloated animal carcasses had to be disposed of. Supplies, including food, became scarce owing to suppliers' safety fears. Fishing was prohibited causing further supply shortages. Lacking any safe alternative, on 16 December, tanks and were emptied of the remaining MIC by reactivating the plant and continuing the manufacture of pesticide.
Despite safety precautions such as having water carrying helicopters continually overflying the plant, this led to a second mass evacuation from Bhopal.
Complaints of lack of information or misinformation were widespread. An Indian government spokesman said, "Carbide is more interested in getting information from us than in helping our relief work". Formal statements were issued that air, water, vegetation and foodstuffs were safe, but warned not to consume fish. The number of children exposed to the gases was at least , Legal proceedings involving UCC, the United States and Indian governments, local Bhopal authorities, and the disaster victims started immediately after the catastrophe.
The Indian Government passed the Bhopal Gas Leak Act in March , allowing the Government of India to act as the legal representative for victims of the disaster,  leading to the beginning of legal proceedings. Initial lawsuits were generated in the United States federal court system. Following an appeal of this decision, the U.
Court of Appeals affirmed the transfer, judging, in January , that UCIL was a "separate entity, owned, managed and operated exclusively by Indian citizens in India". Throughout , the Indian Supreme Court heard appeals against the settlement. The Court ordered the Indian government "to purchase, out of settlement fund, a group medical insurance policy to cover , persons who may later develop symptoms" and cover any shortfall in the settlement fund. The company agreed to this. In , the local Bhopal authorities charged Anderson, who had retired in , with manslaughter, a crime that carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
He was declared a fugitive from justice by the Chief Judicial Magistrate of Bhopal on 1 February for failing to appear at the court hearings in a culpable homicide case in which he was named the chief defendant. Orders were passed to the Government of India to press for an extradition from the United States. Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal of the decision of the lower federal courts in October , meaning that victims of the Bhopal disaster could not seek damages in a U.
In , the Indian Supreme Court ordered the Indian government to release any remaining settlement funds to victims. And in September , the Welfare Commission for Bhopal Gas Victims announced that all original compensation claims and revised petitions had been "cleared".
Union Carbide Corporation in This move blocked plaintiffs' motions for class certification and claims for property damages and remediation. In the view of UCC, "the ruling reaffirms UCC's long-held positions and finally puts to rest—both procedurally and substantively—the issues raised in the class action complaint first filed against Union Carbide in by Haseena Bi and several organisations representing the residents of Bhopal".
In June , seven former employees of UCIL, all Indian nationals and many in their 70s, were convicted of causing death by negligence: Gokhale, managing director; Kishore Kamdar, vice-president; J. Mukund, works manager; S. Chowdhury, production manager; K. Shetty, plant superintendent; and S. They were each sentenced to two years imprisonment and fined Rs. All were released on bail shortly after the verdict.
US Federal class action litigation, Sahu v. Union Carbide and Warren Anderson , had been filed in under the U. The lawsuit was dismissed in and subsequent appeal denied. Some data about the health effects are still not available. A total of 36 wards were marked by the authorities as being "gas affected," affecting a population of , Of these, , were below 15 years of age, and 3, were pregnant women. The official immediate death toll was 2,, and in , 3, deaths had been officially certified.
Ingrid Eckerman estimated 8, died within two weeks. Later, the affected area was expanded to include , citizens. A government affidavit in stated the leak caused , injuries including 38, temporary partial injuries and approximately 3, severely and permanently disabling injuries. A cohort of 80, exposed people was registered, along with a control group, a cohort of 15, people from areas not exposed to MIC.
Nearly every year since , they have answered the same questionnaire. It shows overmortality and overmorbidity in the exposed group. Bias and confounding factors cannot be excluded from the study. A number of clinical studies are performed. The quality varies, but the different reports support each other. Missing or insufficient fields for research are female reproduction, chromosomal aberrations, cancer, immune deficiency, neurological sequelae, post traumatic stress disorder PTSD and children born after the disaster.
Late cases that might never be highlighted are respiratory insufficiency, cardiac insufficiency cor pulmonale , cancer and tuberculosis. A report in Mother Jones quotes a "spokesperson for the Bhopal Medical Appeal, which runs free health clinics for survivors" as saying "An estimated , to , survivors still struggle with serious medical conditions including nerve damage, growth problems, gynecological disorders, respiratory issues, birth defects, and elevated rates of cancer and tuberculosis.
The Government of India had focused primarily on increasing the hospital-based services for gas victims thus hospitals had been built after the disaster. BMHRC was a bedded super speciality hospital where heart surgery and hemodialysis were done. There was a dearth of gynaecology, obstetrics and paediatrics.
Eight mini-units outreach health centres were started and free health care for gas victims were to be offered until When the factory was closed in , pipes, drums and tanks were sold. The MIC and the Sevin plants are still there, as are storages of different residues. Isolation material is falling down and spreading. In tubewells in the vicinity of the UCIL factory had to be abandoned and tests in performed by UCC's laboratory revealed that soil and water samples collected from near the factory and inside the plant were toxic to fish.
Reported polluting compounds include 1-naphthol , naphthalene , Sevin , tarry residue , mercury , toxic organochlorines , volatile organochlorine compounds, chromium , copper, nickel, lead, hexachloroethane , hexachlorobutadiene , and the pesticide HCH.
In order to provide safe drinking water to the population around the UCIL factory, Government of Madhya Pradesh presented a scheme for improvement of water supply. In , a conference was held on the site, with participants from European universities which was aimed for the same. All except one was closed down by It was estimated that 50, persons need alternative jobs, and that less than gas victims had found regular employment under the government's scheme. The government also planned 2, flats in two- and four-story buildings in what is called the "widow's colony" outside Bhopal.
The water did not reach the upper floors and it was not possible to keep cattle which were their primary occupation. Infrastructure like buses, schools, etc. Immediate relieves were decided two days after the tragedy. Relief measures commenced in when food was distributed for a short period along with ration cards. As a result of the interim relief, more children were able to attend school, more money was spent on treatment and food, and housing also eventually improved.
Each claimant were to be categorised by a doctor. In court, the claimants were expected to prove "beyond reasonable doubt" that death or injury in each case was attributable to exposure.
