Current Defective Product Lawsuits
We are currently investigating lawsuits involving the following defective products:
Defective Chinese Drywall
Drywall was imported from China from 2004 to 2008 because the domestic wallboard industry could not meet the demands of the housing market boom and substantial rebuilding efforts following the destructive hurricanes in 2004 and 2005. The imported Chinese drywall releases sulfuric gases that corrode metal appliances and components in homes. Residents of these homes also complain that the gases result in headaches, respiratory and skin ailments.
Defective Weyerhaeuser Flak Jacket TJi Joists
In response to regulatory changes introduced in 2012, Weyerhaeuser introduced a low-cost add on to their TJI floor joists to meet the enhanced fire safety regulations: Trus Joist TJI Joists with Flak Jacket Protection. However, due to a product defect in these joists, formaldehyde is off-gassing from the I-Joists at high levels. Customers have complained about a strong formaldehyde odor in newly constructed homes, and many have experienced symptoms of formaldehyde exposure.
