� 1 Appellant, John Crane, Inc., appeals from the judgment entered in favor of Appellee, Gloria Hall, Executrix of the Estate of Lester D. Smallwood. We reverse and remand for a new trial.

� 2 The trial court offered the following summary of procedural history:

[Appellant] filed post-trial motions in this matter following a jury verdict in favor of [Appellee] regarding the deceased’s claims for injuries and damages as a result of exposure to asbestos-containing products. All of the other Defendants settled prior to trial. A Phase I trial on damages was held first and award of $200,000 was rendered. The Phase II trial on liability was conducted from March 9-11, 1999 with a unanimous verdict of liability. [Appellant] contends that numerous errors occurred at trial and that they are entitled to a new trial on both liability and damages. On May 5, 200, [Appellant's] motion for post trial [sic] relief was denied.
