Homeowners across Florida have suffered damages as a result of the use of defective Chinese drywall in their homes. One of the first cases to go to trial is now being deliberated by a South Florida Jury.
Consumers have filed hundreds of cases throughout Florida seeking damages for product liability as a result of the use of drywall manufactured in China. The components of the drywall at issue are alleged to cause corrosion of pipes, air conditioning units and personal injury.
In Jacksonville, the use of Chinese drywall was common during the construction boom that occured from 2000 through 2005. Many homeowners are just now learning that they have a defective product in their home as they are beginning to experience the problems that can result.
We will report on the jury’s verdict when it is rendered.
