Chinese drywall cases – Virginia Legislature’s response

The Hampton Roads Virginian-Pilot reports that a Virginia House committee rejected a measure which “would have ensured that home-owners could file claims with their home insurance companies for property damage caused by Chinese-made drywall,” and one which “would have prevented home insurers from canceling policies or raising rates on properties because they were built with the drywall.” While lawmakers “agreed owners of homes built with Chinese drywall deserve relief, they weren’t sure that going through insurance companies was the best way for them to go about getting it.”  Herndon Reston area injury and disease lawyer Doug Landau believes that the Virginia legislature should assist homeowner injured or made ill due to the foreign made drywall.  The American Association for Justice (“AAJ”) information on foreign manufacturer accountability can be found here.
