Our personal injury lawyers in San Diego want the Chinese drywall situation to be resolved as quickly as possible and as fair as possible. Tens of thousands of people have been displaced from their homes, and even more have become sick because of the effects of the drywall with known products liability issues.
Most of the people with Chinese drywall containing design defects in their homes have the devastating power of hurricanes to blame. Up until now, our products liability attorneys assumed the homes with defective drywall were primarily in the south, but new information points to more homes further north that are affected.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment is doing work with the Consumer Product Safety Commission to find out if Kansas homes where Chinese drywall could have been used. Homes built between 2003 and 2008 fall victim to possibly having defective drywall in them. Possible homes in Kansas join the definite homes in Louisiana and Florida that have contaminated drywall which lead to problems for the homes themselves and the people living in them.
Homes contaminated by the sulfur emitted by the defective drywall have strong smells, can cause itchy or irritated skin, constant coughs and headaches in the people living inside. The same sulfur can cause erosion of metal components in homes.
No matter where they are, our firm’s personal injury attorneys believe these homes need to be either fixed or the buyers of the homes need to do their own repairs that should be reimbursed by the companies who supplied the drywall. Through products liability lawsuits, we hope these issues will be resolved, and people are given proper homes to live in.
