CHINESE DRYWALL - Alleviate the Suffering With the Help of a Qualified Chinese Drywall Attorney

Something smells in thousands of homes that were constructed between 2003 and the present. The smell has been compared to the stench of rotting eggs or to the lighting of a match, and whatever the cause, it is making people and pets ill, destroying pipes and appliances, rendering homes uninhabitable and decimating property values.

In May of 2009, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a finding of suspect materials in imported Chinese-made drywall. Florida homes containing the drywall yielded disturbing test results. Sulfur and two organic compounds customarily found in acrylic paint were found in the Chinese drywall but have no such existence in American-made drywall. Further, strontium levels were higher in the imported drywall than in domestic products.

The poisoning of households from tainted Chinese drywall has created more questions than answers, and people adversely affected are often without an advocate when trying to address their problems. Qualified Chinese Drywall Attorneys who have thoroughly delved into this issue can be an asset to those affected.

Reported health issues include:

  • bloody or runny noses 
  • headaches and dizziness 
  • itchy or watery eyes and itchy skin 
  • relentless cough 
  • sore throat 
  • breathing difficulties and chest pain 
  • sinus infections 
  • nausea 
  • asthma attacks 
  • loss of appetite 
  • insomnia 
  • irritability 
  • memory loss 
  • fatigue and general malaise 
  • worsening of COPD

Property damage may include: 

  • corroded metal pipes 
  • damaged major appliances 
  • heating and air conditioning problems 
  • weakened electrical wiring 
  • fire from corroded wiring

Task forces from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC,) the EPA, the CDC, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, as well as state health departments are all investigating complaints filed with federal and state agencies and poison control centers. Actions against builders and building suppliers are on the rise. Congress has become involved, and the United States Senate Commerce Committee is holding hearings on the drywall problems.

Illness and property damage is further aggravated by the dislocation of families during extensive repairs, or in some cases, during the necessary destruction of affected homes. Shipping records indicate there may be tens of thousands of afflicted homes in the United States. In Louisiana alone, following Hurricane Katrina, there were an untold number of homes constructed with the toxic drywall.  Along with Louisiana, homes in California and Florida have also been greatly impacted by toxic Chinese drywall due to the building boom in recent years.

Problems with unsafe drywall can go undetected if the symptoms appear slowly and the people living in the homes become accustomed to the smell or don’t suspect that health concerns or damaged appliances are related to the issue. This can be especially true of homes occupied by the elderly. Since the tainted drywall has only been used in the US since 2003, long term effects of living with it is unknown, and adverse events not recognized now may create more serious issues later.

This problem is complex and uncertain, and the first positive step people can take to help themselves is to discuss their circumstances with a Toxic Drywall Lawyer who is deeply engaged in this national issue. Compensation may be available for: 

  • current and ongoing medical expenses 
  • pain and suffering 
  • loss of income or future earnings 
  • loss of livelihood or support 
  • repairs, rebuilding and maintenance costs 
  • relocation expenses
