Launches Chinese Drywall Information Portal

Denver, CO, July 02, 2009 --(, the online leader in comprehensive legal information, has announced the newest addition to its expansive resource base of personal injury issues. This week marks the launch of the most recent site, a Chinese drywall information portal, available at With the launch of this portal, LegalView adds to its already broad knowledge base and continues its pursuit of connecting indivduals in need of experienced and quality legal assistance with the information they require.

The Chinese drywall information portal contains details on the emerging potential Chinese drywall problem, a developing health concern among homeowners across the U.S. At the heart of this problem is what some investigators say is defective Chinese drywall. According to a recent news report in the Wall Street Journal, many homeowners and toxicologists are claiming that some Chinese-made drywall has been found to release toxic gases; the presence of these gases has been identified by and is thought to be the cause of corroded copper tubing in air conditioning units. The allegedly defective Chinese drywall was installed in recently constructed homes, mainly in the Southeast region of the U.S. In the wake of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, many construction materials were in short supply. Chinese drywall was cheap and readily available at the time, and many contractors looking to cut costs were attracted to these factors. However, there were no visible signs that the drywall was contaminated with toxic materials.

It is now suspected that the Chinese drywall is leeching sulfur gases into homes, potentially causing a host of health problems: eye irritation, sore throat, stuffy nose, cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, fatigue, nausea and headaches. Especially of note are the health problems that have manifested in children and elderly residents in homes with the potentially contaminated Chinese drywall. Many tenants of homes with Chinese drywall have reported alarming sinus and respiratory problems present in their children. Additional reports of elderly persons experiencing breathing difficulties have also been common.

In the interest of protecting the interests of homeowners across the U.S., has recently launched to provide individuals access to a Chinese drywall lawyer. The site provides homeowners and other affected parties with access to information about a potential Chinese drywall class action lawsuit, as well as continual updates on the Chinese drywall problem. As always, early action in the development of any possible Chinese drywall lawsuit could mean monetary compensation to offset costs of remodeling and health care costs associated with contaminated Chinese drywall.

Additionally, has recently announced the relaunch of their newly revised Construction accident information portal. This highly informative legal portal provides individuals with access to a wide range of construction accident resources, including a construction accident lawyer, a construction accident law suit, and information on a construction accident injury.
