Walls and ceilings are built with drywall, which is made from paper, sulfate and a type of plaster. Drywall serves as one of the most important parts of a building’s construction.
Recently, complaints from homeowners whose homes were made with a particular drywall manufactured in China has caused a government investigation and products liability lawsuit.
Sometimes, a product made by a company causes more harm than benefits. Personal injury can happen because of a design defect or manufacturing defect. When a company needs to be held responsible for a defective product, an experienced personal injury attorney in San Diego can make sure you receive the maximum settlement you deserve in a products liability claim.
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) — the agency responsible for protecting against personal injury (along with personal injury attorneys) associated with defective consumer products — asked Congress for funds to pay for various expenses related to product liability caused by the Chinese drywall used by the Lennar Homebuilding Company.
That drywall — used in thousands of homes in 13 states between 2000 and 2008 — is responsible for the 180 products liability complaints from personal injury, ranging from nosebleeds to respiratory problems as a result of the sulfur based odors and gases coming from the drywall.
This easily preventable products liability lawsuit gives a new meaning to the phrase “Home Sweet Home.”
