- Mobile Home Manufacturers Settle Lawsuit
According to Reuters, 21 mobile home manufacturers have agreed to pay $14.8 million to thousands of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita victims who claimed they were harmed by formaldehyde in the trailers. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) provided trailers for homeless Gulf Coast residents to temporarily live in after the hurricanes destroyed the area. Residents of the homes claimed that they sustained respiratory illnesses and other medical conditions from the formaldehyde in the trailer homes.
Formaldehyde is colorless, flammable gas that is used in the production of paper, resins and building materials. Exposure to formaldehyde can cause wide range of health problems from respiratory issues to cancer.
Thousands of people may receive a payment from the class-action settlement. Potential victims should file a legal claim before August, if they have not already done so.

Thank you for your message, we will get back to you soon.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
