Hurricane Katrina Victims Sue FEMA for Their Flu-Like Symptoms

Victims of Hurricane Katrina have filed a class-action lawsuit against FEMA, and some area RV makers blamed wood products in the units that contain formaldehyde for their flu-like symptoms after living in the trailers.

They say part of the problem was many of the trailers stood empty and not properly ventilated for months before they were delivered.

The lawsuit is not seeking monetary damages. It only asks that the government fix the reported problem.

    Why sue?
    I mean, when will people of all kinds in America stop relying on the government to take action for any natural disaster?
    I am not saying the government should not help out, but to sue FEMA for your flu like symtoms? Come on! Thats a joke! If I had rescued a victim and gave them a pair of new shoes to wear because their shoes were all soaked…and they ended up with bunions, and tried to sue me…. I would counter sue them for deflamation of my charactor! That’s Horse Crap! Sounds to me that this group that is sueing ….when desperate for money, turned on the organization and the people that helped them, gave them shelter, just as a way for more money. Free is ever good enough.

    This mesage is for Pepsicolastar mainly. Please try to understand that it is not that people are sueing FEMA becuase they want to. It is becuase they have too. Alot of people have no medical insurance and are very sick. I can tell you that I am not a FEMA trailer Victim but I am another type of Victim from a brand new FORD Handicapped Van that was built in Kosuicsko,MS during the Katrina hurricane. This vehicle without a doubt is loaded with HIGHER LEVELS OF FORMALDEHYDE POISON then the trailers. It is my fault that this company took advantage of me. I do not think so. But again I am going to sue for personal injury because FORD refused to buy back this brand new van. Did they take advantage of a disabled child? The answer is YES!!!! Did they take advantage of my family? YES again.

    Ask your self this? Would you buy a vehicle or trailer and then expect to not use it for months while it is off gassing? I do not believe anyone who is in that situation would stand for this. I filed in FL for the Lemon Law and lost before we even entered the court house. Why? Because a board member convinced the other two board members that since they knew nothing about it that she only did from college chemistry class one semester that she was an expert and made the decision that it was not hazardous. Well gee, The OSHA, American Cancer and other organizations have declared it a carceigen (cancer). I and my family have all come down with skin cancer severely and I have RAD which is another name for Restrictive Airway Disease and also VCD which is called Vocal Cord Dysfunction. I am in fact this wed having skin cancer surgery for the 3rd time from this toxic poison.

    We need to have the people who caused this to happen be responsible for the damages. In the care of the FEMA trailers the government is responsible for the illnesses and injuries. They say they were not aware but when people and doctors start telling them they change results of testing and other things that should have been dealt with already. In my case I think the custom company and the lift company and FORD and the dealership in Plant City, FL should all hang for these injuries. Especially since I have a severely handicapped son and I place my son in the van thinking I was doing the right thing getting him new transportation. Without my research I would have never found out the van was built in Miss during Katrina and flooded and dried out and sold to me after 4 title washing and sneaked in FL where my innocent family suffers now and no cure.
