The Masonite lawsuit is a class action lawsuit that was filed against Rachael Mason, founder and owner of the company Masonite. Ms. Mason is accused of creating a product that has low quality asbestos. She is also accused of failing to warn the public about the potential health hazards of the product.
The company that manufactured the product has been named in a class action lawsuit, and several individuals have filed personal injury lawsuits against the company. If you are one of those people who have been injured by the products, and you would like to file a claim against the manufacturer, you should consult with a personal injury attorney.
The reason that the manufacturer is named in a class action lawsuit is because they knew of the health risks associated with their product, yet sold it to the public anyway. The plaintiff’s attorneys also point out that the courts have been unable to prevent manufacturers from selling substandard products.
In other words, they have been powerless to stop big box stores from emptying shelves of cheap vinyl flooring and replace it with hardboard siding. It appears that if only the manufacturers would listen to the warnings of consumers, this problem wouldn’t have arisen. So, basically, the lawsuit is not against the product per se, but against the manufacturer.
Now, you might be thinking that a manufacturer is being unfair to the plaintiffs when they enter into a price fixing agreement.
If the plaintiffs are suggesting that a manufacturer is cheating them out of a percentage of the profits for their work, the defendant will argue that it is simply part of the normal business practice to fix your costs after a certain amount of time passes. After all, most companies have some kind of time limit as to how long they can try to fix a cost dispute. It is not uncommon for a manufacturer to close a case without providing any further details on how it will resolve the problem. What is even more troubling about the price fixing agreement is that it suggests a level of dishonesty that is rarely seen in corporate America.
Some of the reasons why the plaintiffs say that their complaints have merit are because the price fixing agreement seems designed to avoid issues rather than solving them.
For example, it requires the plaintiffs to wait a certain amount of time before filing their complaint. It also requires the plaintiffs to notify their competitors of their lawsuit well in advance of filing it. One way of ensuring that the manufacturer does not try to avoid a case is by having the interior molded doors of the home painted before the lawsuit is filed. Although these lawsuits are usually filed against retailers, the complaint has been directed at the manufacturer of the exterior door products, and it could be argued that the manufacturer knowingly and negligently violated the statute of limitations.
Another reason why the lawsuit has merit is that the complaint is filed under a state law that permits one-time plaintiffs to recover damages based upon the commercial activities of the defendant.
The Masonite lawsuit is actually a class action lawsuit brought on behalf of all persons who have purchased or used defective or dangerous exterior doors made by the defendants. Although there are some homeowners who feel that the lawsuit should apply to newly built home construction, the lawsuit can actually apply to older home construction and remodeling. Because it is a class action lawsuit, the plaintiffs will receive monetary compensation for the medical care, lost wages and future loss of earning capacity that is caused by the defendants’ negligence.
The lawsuit was filed after a friend of the plaintiffs discovered cracks in her basement door and sent an operative to repair the door.
During the repair process, the operative cut a hole in the interior of the door and inserted screws into the wall. When told of the problem, the company representative did not call the homeowners before closing the deal. When the workers got back to the house, they discovered the holes in the exterior doors and notified the homeowners. The company did not make any attempt to correct the problem until after the plaintiff purchased the defective doors for $500.
