The personal injury attorney, Michael D. Cerasa, specializing in damage from natural disasters, at Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter in Orlando, Florida is now representing clients who have suffered due to defective drywall that was purchased from a Chinese manufacturer during the real estate boom in 2004.
Builders, to keep up with the demand for new homes in Florida, ordered drywall from Knauf Plasterboard Tianjin Co. Ltd, which is a subsidiary of German-based drywall manufacturer, Knauf. The drywall purchased from Knauf is now alleged to be defective in that it emits a “rotten egg” odor in residences and office buildings and causes serious electrical problems.
Some electrical problems seen in buildings with the defective drywall include corroding air-conditioner coils and computer wiring. The defective drywall may also pose serious health risks such as respiratory problems, nose bleeds, eye irritations and headaches. If you have experienced any of these symptoms, you should contact your doctor immediately.
At the center of the defective drywall complaints are Lennar Homes and Taylor Morrison, Florida building companies. It is highly likely, however, that Lennar and Taylor Morrison are not the only builders who purchased the defective drywall between 2004 and 2006.
