Who is Eligible to File a Claim?

Anyone Who Has Purchased or Is in the process of purchasing a home constructed with Weyerhaeuser’s TJI Joists with Flak Jacket Protection on or after December 1, 2016.

What is the problem?

The TJI joists were manufactured using formaldehyde. People who have these TJI Joists in their homes have reported that the TJI Joists produce a strong pickle-like odor, causing severe physical reactions, including nausea, headaches, difficulty breathing, and stinging and tearing eyes.

According to Jason Ochs, “To date Weyerhaeuser has proposed “coating” the joists but we believe the only safe option is complete removal and replacement which is what we intend to seek in all cases of ours, plus additional compensation for exposure where applicable.   Many states have strict disclosure laws when selling a house which is another reason we want removal and replacement because of very real risk that simply coating will not be satisfactory (and further reduce value) of any home sold in future that only has coating.”

How to File Your Claim

Homeowners with the Flak Jacket Floor joists have been advised by their homebuilders to immediately move out of their homes.

The Nelson Law Firm is currently representing homeowners with individual claims whose homes were constructed with floor joists that use the Weyerhaeuser product known as Flak Jacket®.
