FEMA Trailer Formaldehyde Class Action Settlement

By Matt O’Donnell

 

FEMA trailer settlementVictims of Hurricane Katrina and Rita who were housed in hazardous, government-issued FEMA trailers will receive $42.6 million from a class action lawsuit settlement that was approved Thursday.

U.S. District Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt granted Final Approval of the FEMA trailer settlement on September 27, 2012, which will provide $37.5 million to roughly 55,000 residents of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Texas paid by more than two dozen manufacturers of the toxic FEMA trailers. Residents can also file claims to receive shares of a separate $5.1 million class action settlement with FEMA contractors that installed and maintained the units.

The FEMA trailer class action lawsuit (entitled In Re: FEMA Trailer Formaldehyde Product Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2:07-MD1873) was filed after government tests in 2008 found dangerously high levels of formaldehyde in hundreds of trailers. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen that can cause severe health problems to those exposed to it. FEMA trailer occupants had complained of health problems such as nosebleeds, headaches and breathing problems.

If you suffered symptoms or injuries as a result of formaldehyde exposure in a Travel Trailer or Park Model Trailer provided by the U.S. government which was manufactured,installed, maintained or refurbished by one of the below-listed Manufacturers and/or Contractors following Hurricanes Katrina and/or Rita, you may be eligible to receive a cash payment from the FEMA trailer class action lawsuit settlement.

The following Manufacturers are also included in the FEMA trailer settlement:

The amount of money you can receive from the FEMA class action settlement will be based on a Class Benefit Formula approved by the Court. If you received any Medicare/Medicaid/TRICARE/Veteran’s Administration/Indiana Health Services benefits, some or all of these amounts may be deducted from your settlement.

    How and when will payment arrive how much will I get?

  • Anonymous October 9, 2012

    We will get a letter after the 1st of the year, to let us know how much we will receive and when.

  • Anonymous October 14, 2012

    How do you know we will receive a letter after the first of the year. I was told that on Oct. 12 the court was going to submit a formula to determine the amounts and that everyone would then receive letters telling us the amounts. That’s what I was told

  • Anonymous October 17, 2012

    I just found this out yesterday and the deadline say 10/12/12 I have all of these problems on a daily basis we lived in a FEMA trailer for 18 months so now what can I do

    i just found out about this. so now what do i do?

  • Anonymous November 8, 2012

    how much and when I have a claim just want to know when to expect a check

  • Anonymous November 21, 2012

    if anyone has any new info i would like to know, i was told by my attorney it would be 6-8 weeks from Oct 12,2012. letters will come from special masters office. checks will follow.

  • Anonymous November 28, 2012

    i am wondering how long will it take to receive the letters from the special master

  • jackie December 28, 2012

    just found out today that everyone who filed a claim now has a claim number. so we should hear something soon. we hope. probably won’t get much of nothing though, there is more than a 100,000 claims. according to the last count info.

  • Tammy December 29, 2012

    I saw articles that said each plaintiff should get around $4020 each. When you do the math it doesn’t add up. Plus there was only 55,000 claims. It’s just crazy that it is taking so long. I promise you the attorneys have been paid but the ones that suffered still suffer. By doing the math it looks like we might get $201.00. To read articles type $4020 fema settlement payment. Does anyone have the number to the attorneys?

  • jackie December 29, 2012

    we now have claim numbers, i don’t know how to get it but that’s what i was told yesterday. Tammy which lawyer are you looking for. like i mentioned earlier there is over 100,000 claims but not everyone will get a check, is what i was told. good luck everyone.

  • jackie December 29, 2012

    they are using the formula to determine what each claimant will get. If you had 2 travel trailers you only get paid for one.

  • jackie December 29, 2012

    call 1-800-728-1628 for information.

  • shirley December 31, 2012

    1800-728-1628

  • shirley December 31, 2012

    lawyers r not worried about us they have their money now they r makeing interst on our a friend told me she recived 124 fo each person in the trailer

  • Tammy December 31, 2012

    When did she get it? They sent checks out mid year but that was not our suit. Was the check for trailer or mobile home?

  • jackie January 1, 2013

    the checks that came out mid december was for the mobile homes, that settlement was for 2 million dollars. I hope we hear something soon.

  • jackie January 1, 2013

    well i read the article about the $4020 a piece and i don’t see how everyone will get the same amount according to the attorneys we won’t all get the same amount. if so i will be very upset cause i’m a cancer patient. and that would not be fair.

  • Tammy January 1, 2013

    So sorry to hear that Jackie. Both my son and I have had severe health issues since then. When they started this I was told those who had medical records would receive more than the others. It is what it is I guess

  • jackie January 2, 2013

    thanks Tammy one thing that I have learned in dealing with lawsuits is that we always get the short end of the stick. I just hope they be fair. So many people filled out claim forms just to get in on a settlement which I feel is sad.

  • Deirdre January 2, 2013

    I’m very disappointed with the whole thing. My family has had many problems since living in that trailor. Not major problems, but who knows what the long term effect will be. I agree the lawyers don’t care how long it takes to release the funds, because they have gotten paid. It is sooo sad they way we have all been treated. All I know is god will take care of us, and provide all our needs, so hold God has the last word!

  • jackie January 2, 2013

    well i was finally able to reach the lawyers office this morning and they told me that there is only about 55,000 people, so now you don’t know who to beleive. I will be so glad when all this is over. It doesn’t matter if you have a huge health issue or a small one. we all suffered in those trailers.

  • trisan lopez January 6, 2013

    I have been calling the formeldiahyde # can’t get an answer I’m just do confused about the whole thing if someone has any up info please let me know.

  • jackie January 9, 2013

    well now when you call the 1-800-728-1628 number noone answers, it is just a recording. has anyone heard anything different.

  • Tammy January 9, 2013

    They could avoid all the bull and just be honest. Tell the people when and how much. Get it done and over. They are causing more stress and harm avoiding the victims.

  • jackie January 10, 2013

    well said Tammy, if they would have given the money directly to the lawyers, we would have been paid by now. But, I’m not looking for much of anything on this case.

  • Jackie January 13, 2013

    I emailed the website. I got a message from the Feraro Law Firm, I was told that they reviewed my claim, but they regret to say my claim has “NO VALIDITY”. Excuse me we stayed in one of those CALIVIER trailet for 2 1/2 years. My husband had a stroke four months after moving into trailer. I have been recently been diagosed with stage four cancer. NO VALIDITY PLEASE.

  • Tammy January 13, 2013

  • trisan lopez January 16, 2013

    Today I called 1-504-483-8956 the answer machine said that they had released the checks on the 5th of January.

  • Tammy January 16, 2013

    Well where the heck did they mail them from? It’s been nine days. Lol. Please post if anyone gets theirs.

  • Tanya January 16, 2013

    @tammy I have watts and hillard too and that Tristan person put a number up and said jan 5 but the recording says dec. 5 checks was mailed out . I wouldn’t trust that info . I haven’t heard of anyone receiving a check from the lawsuit for them to say checks went out dec 5.

  • Tammy January 16, 2013

    Thanks Tanya. Those were the mobile home checks. I am trying to be patient but we’ve already been waiting too long. What can you do but wait. Lol

  • jackie January 16, 2013

    can anyone tell me how you are getting all this info because i have talked to my lawyers several times and he said nothing about checks being mailed on Jan 5. Remember this settlement is for travel trailors not mobile homes.

  • Toya January 16, 2013

    The checks that were sent out in Dec was for the mobile trailers according to the person 800-728-1628. Who said Jan 5th we would receive something

  • Toya January 16, 2013

    When you call 504-483-8956 there is a recording that comes on and says checks for the traivel trailers had been mailed out starting Dec 5 but when i spoke to the people at the 800-728-1628 they said that was for the mobile trailers not the travel trailers. You cant get a clear answer from anyone seem like.

  • jackie January 17, 2013

    well no new info they just keep saying be patient it will be soon.

  • Toya January 17, 2013

    I received a call and to sum things up they are still processing claims and when done they will send allocation letters. The number is 855 483 8956

  • jbsan January 19, 2013

    Hi looks like none of us received our checks.lt seems like we been lie too.does anyone knows what we can do. We the people deserves some answers.

  • Gary Owens January 21, 2013

    How may people actually saved their paper work from when they went to a Doctor for thier illnesses. How many actually went to the doctor? Hard to say, but everyone who suffered in those trailer should be compensated for thier suffering!. You had a bad trailer , you should be paid! Period! Me and my wife had a lot of symptons and we hould be paid I feel. Thanks Sorry for my rant

  • Gary Owens January 21, 2013

    I hope the court will do the right thing and pay everyone for the suffering!!

  • Tanya January 22, 2013

    @ Gary for some reason I saved all my paper work from every doctor I went to. Just so happen I keep my paper work for a year or so just to be safe

  • Gary Owens January 26, 2013

    I sent an email to the web site and recieved a reply. They stated to be patient and that there was no set time frame for the claimant payments. Still reviewing claims and just be patient. That what they replied.

  • Tammy January 26, 2013

    The time for patience is over. Claims should have already been done and we should have already received a letter. With a the money the attorneys made they need to work harder and faster. This is unjust. Gary who is your attorney?

  • Gary Owens January 27, 2013

    Email; claims@femaformaldehydelitigation.com That’s who I emailed.

  • trisan January 28, 2013

    To Gary what did they say to you when you en
    abled them

  • trisan January 28, 2013

    Im sorry i meant when y
    ou emailed them.

  • Tammy January 28, 2013

    I emailed them and they are doing the same song and dance. There is no set date for us to get even a letter explaining our claim. Pathetic. They appreciate our patience. Who said we are patient. They said in several articles that we would receive our payment late 2012 or beginning 2013. Guess it depends on their definition of beginning. It would be do nice to know how much and when.

  • amanda February 2, 2013

    I just talked to my lawyer today and they said it will be another to weeks befour we get our checks. And that its takeing longer then what wangs planed.And that there is 100.000 people who has claims and another 250.000 people that who filed.so what the hell is going on.i lived in a fema camper for four years with my four kids we all stay sick sick all the time. And the drs dont never no whats wrong with us.

  • Tammy February 2, 2013

    Who is your attorney? If the amount of people is true then we will end up with nothing and we have all waited for nothing.

  • Jackie February 7, 2013

  • lopez February 13, 2013

  • gail February 16, 2013

    I HAVE A GOOD FRIEND THAT RECIVED HER CHECK IN DEC. SHE RECIVED $118.00 AND 118 FOR EACH ONE OF HER KIDS SO WHAT DOES THAT TELL US

  • lopez February 17, 2013

    i guess that we might get the same thing

  • Tammy February 18, 2013

    That was for the mobile homes not for travel trailers. I have no proof but I figure about 402 each. If u take away what the lawyers get. I bet they have their money. I don’t think they should get paid to we do and maybe they haven’t but it shouldn’t take this long.

  • Gary Owens February 21, 2013

    I sent another email and got the same old reply about be patient and no set time frame on payments. Runaround ,plain and simple. Just be patient and hang in there people!!

  • Gary Owens February 21, 2013

    I feel pretty confident that every legit applicant will get something but it will take time. Good Luck everyone!

  • laurie pierce February 25, 2013

  • Melissa ragan March 23, 2013

    My attorney had told me that there r two types of checks,litagated& non litagated. Some trailer manufactures filed bankruptcy. That why many only received a 100$. I lived in 3 different trailers. All tested possitive. The lawsuit won againt the manufacture that didnt file bankruptcy is the one we r waiting for. My son suffered two surgeries,i got a lung disease from it,my grandson couldnt see for four months& my daughter had stroke from the poisoning. We r all still very sock. My last round of bronchial bacterial infection lasted 42 days. I broke two ribs from the coughing. The checks r just taking way to long to get releif

  • Melissa ragan March 23, 2013

    If u lived in a unit that the manufacture filed bankrupcy,u will receive ony 100$ per person. This is called non litagated. If u lived in a unit that the manufactures were taken to court,thats called litagated. But how long do we have to keep waiting to have closure to this? After all,its been 6 months now since lawsuit was awarded

    Amanda who is your lawyer. I believe it is in the court papers that it is less than $500. Look on the update site and look on the court papers. I hope you are right :). The waiting is crazy and sad.

  • Freda June 12, 2013

    I would like to know why some attorney have information on when the letter are to be mail out. I have Watts as my attorney and they never have anything the can tell me but that just wishful thinking that the people are posting on this site.

  • Tammy June 12, 2013

    Freda that’s who I have. So are they saying there are no letters going out???

  • Freda June 12, 2013

    Watts office told me that claims are being process and that the master’s office does not have a deadline so they don’t know when any letters will go out. I feel like calling the master’s office myself to ask them because they have not updated their site since 4/2/2013.

  • Tom June 13, 2013

    Well they don’t want anyone calling the special masters office or the court they want you to get in touch with the lawyer that is handling your case but some of the lawyers either acting like they don’t have a clue and I do mean acting they don’t want anyone saying that such and such told them because they are not suppose to Leak any info so they tell you something to keep you at bay the reason for no update is because they have nothing else to say so they say its no time line they have people twisted backed in a corner so when they decide to give it up you will be glad to except what ever you get they have a strategy behind the waiting and it’s working to their advantage think about it ? That’s why they call them a special Masters they put the Monkey on his back now not to take nothing from him I understand that he is a very fair Person so I was told so who ever when ever someone gets anything let us know one thing we do know is that we can depend on each other so the moment I get any info I will share it with you and you guys the same. Victims of Katrina & Rita

  • jb June 14, 2013

    we have been lied to again, the dates keep changing on when we are going to get letters so frustrating. I know it’s not much money. but any money will help.

  • Anne June 14, 2013

    A new update was posted today June 14th on the fema formaldehyde website. It states that the allocation letters were mailed out today. The amount that is to be received by each claimant is not given. I guess we will find out when we get our allocation letters in the next 2 weeks.

  • kjwk June 15, 2013

    It’s about time they mail the letters out it’s been nine months hopefully we don’t have to wait two weeks to recieve the letters but who knows we might recieve our checks too long as it’s been.

  • dee June 15, 2013

    my friend got her letter today 6/115/2013 and her amount was $228.00

  • Jenn June 15, 2013

    I got a letter today from the special master and my reward amount was only 85$. I can’t believe I waited this long and that’s what I get. What a ripoff. I guess all our $ goes to the lawyers and the special master.

  • Anne June 15, 2013

    I just received message from my aunt and her allocation amount is $416.74

  • Gary owens June 16, 2013

    I got my letter yesterday 6/15/13. I am going to get a whopping $127.21 what a rip off!

  • Tammy June 17, 2013

    Who is the attorneys???

  • Tom June 17, 2013

    Tammy look under FEMA trailer update click on the first site scroll down you will see the Attorneys between 34&36 of them

  • Tammy June 17, 2013

    Tom I was curious if those with low amounts were from the same firms. I received my families letters today. My oldest son and I had medical documentation but all four members got the same amount $228.07. So sad. I pray those with cancer get compensated better than that. Attorneys made off better than the victims and the mental and emotional stress we endured us horrible. Now how long do we wait for the check. I’m guessing nothing will be done til after July 12th.

    Well Tammy we got the 228.07 also I can’t understand it I would like to post something but I will wait until the attorney calls me today before I say something. That I shouldn’t but I will after they call me this whole thing smells dirty something is very wrong I don’t know what but I will find out I know they probely read these post but its something’s I would like to ask you and tell you but don’t want to put my # on the site maby we can find a way to communicate some other way

  • rachlnu June 18, 2013

    i got my letter between my daughter and myself we aren’t getting anywhere near 500 dollars but what i want to know is when are we getting paid

  • Tammy June 18, 2013

    It can’t be before July 12th. That is the deadline to object to the amount. How long after that who knows. Look how long it took them to send out a letter. I am curious as to certain a firms were given different amounts. They say this was on a point system. How did they come up with that? Face it we were all screwed. The attorneys and special master got the money and those who lived in life threatening surroundings got a small check and a pat on the back.

  • Dlaine June 18, 2013

    I have to say no amount of money would ever bring my mom back but I didn’t think they would tell me that I was getting 309.55 back!!!! I’m not understanding why everyone got such low amounts. My Mother got cancer from the trailers she founded out that she had cancer aug 30, 2008 and passed away sep 28, 2008!!!! This is so not far… I hope the best for everyone!!!

  • kjwk June 20, 2013

    I was told today that we will recieve the checks at the end of July or the beginning of August. I think this is soon wrong we need to stand up and do something about this,this is so cruel bad enough they took nine months to mail the letters an now this. Really.

  • tanya June 20, 2013

    well my letter said i will get $228.07 …..Really !!!! so pissed

  • jb June 20, 2013

    the buzzbee law firm don’t ever have to worry about me signing with their office ever again. all i got was 195.85, i guess that all my cancer is worth to them. how sad.

  • kjwk June 20, 2013

    My lawyer told me today that we will recieve our checks in the next 2 months how sad an when I told her about my amount which is 228.07 she said oh that’s about right. I didnt want to talk anymore because this is so ridiculous.

  • Tom June 20, 2013

    Kjwk that’s a good question what can we do get together put all the checks in the bank get the interest like they did for about a year come up with something you would have to talk to a law firm out of the state these Bastards here you Can’t trust as far as you can see its a trick bag

  • kjwk June 22, 2013

    you are right tom i feel this is a slap in the face

  • ashly July 3, 2013

    i am getting only 228 and i ended up in the hospital for 2 years after it, with Brain cancer and to this day i am still suffering from it cuz the tumor i got from it can not be removed so when it flairs up i end up back in the hospital.

  • Ralph white July 8, 2013

    ? Will anyone contest the offer before the deadline or just settle for the amount they offering .

  • jb July 9, 2013

    maybe if we stop signing up for their lawsuits , they would respect us more. we make them richer , while we get poorer. If time for us to stick together.

  • ashly July 11, 2013

    i detested my offer cuz i have over 80k in bills from the trailer

  • Ralph white July 11, 2013

    We have until tomorrow to have it post marked so if you plan to fight it don’t forget pass it on to friends & Family

  • Tammy July 20, 2013

    Any news on the money??? Will wait wait months for that too?

  • Freda July 26, 2013

    Well I think we will be waiting awhile for the checks. I call and found out that the checks want be mail out until they get finish with all of the objections claims. It would be nice if they would just pay everyone that did not object to the award amount.

  • Dees July 29, 2013

    This is ridiculous…. the amount that we all will be receiving. I will not use the Buzzbee Law Firm again. Every time I called no one knew what was going on. The amount that my family will be getting don’t even cover our medical bills. I had to take my daughter out of school and home school her because she was so ill. My husband has permanent breathing problems ect….. I have a doctors paper stating for FEMA to find me another place to live besides the FEMA Trailer or I will be dead in 6 months. We had to find our own place. And we lost it this year to foreclosure. And I know there are so many of us with permanent medical problems due to the fema trailers. The amount we are getting is an insult…….. The one’s that made the decision of the amounts, probably never had to stay in the trailers. How many people trailer caught on fire or had other problems besides the formaldehyde? It sickens me more to know that we are being scammed by all these attorneys. Lets all stick up for each other and hold our head high. Hopefully something will change. Lets see how long it takes to get our money now. It’s only been 8 years since Katrina.

    I think i will just go to the local news because this doesn’t make sense. My lawyer’s office told me the checks would be mailed on August 1st…every time i call it’s a different story. The websites says we can’t call the Special Master’s office & that we should call our lawyers, but the lawyers are saying we have to call the Special Master’s office because they don’t know anything!!! It took 5 yrs to settle & it’s been 9 months & we still haven’t received anything…. #confused & tired of waiting…

  • ash August 20, 2013

    Any updates on checks? Anybody?

  • Freda August 27, 2013

    I wonder how much longer we will have to wait for the checks to arrive. I know that the lawyers are not in a hurry due to all of the interest they are making off of the money.

  • Edith August 27, 2013

    When I spoke with the magistrates office last week they stated they were waiting on the magistrate to sign off on the list of claimants names, then they would send the checks out directly from his office not the lawyers office. He said it could take anywhere from a week to a month and they would put a update on the site.

  • tasi monae September 6, 2013

    Did anyone received any updated on our checks

  • Anne September 7, 2013

    A case update was posted today on http://www.FEMAFormaldehydeLitigation.com. It may take several more weeks until the checks are distributed.

  • Tammy September 9, 2013

    Wow. That’s all I can say. We won’t see our checks until next the way they are going. Really??? It’s been a year. Give us our damn money already. Haven’t we suffered enough???

  • kjkw September 11, 2013

    I just can’t believe this. I agree that we should go to our local news im from n.o.and i will be calling bill capo this is really some bs. Now im serious about this it’s going too far niece.

  • Freda September 12, 2013

    I agree with you about going to the local news. It should not be taking this long to get the small amount of money we are getting. I think we all really need to ask our local news to help us with this matter.

  • ashley September 18, 2013

    HEY EVERY BODY I SPOKE WITH THE SPECIAL MASTER HIM SELF CHECKS ARE BEING MAILED OUT ON SEPT 30 AN UPDATE WILL BE POSTED SHORTLY

  • tee September 25, 2013

  • Freda September 26, 2013

    I think we want get another update until next year. We ALL are getting different stories and that’s the reason we are not getting any updates. This is because the Special Master’s office don’t know what Special Lie they want to tell us.

  • tee September 30, 2013

    Today is September 30; where’s the checks and updates *smdh*. This is horrible to put people thru all this headache. Unlike them some need their money…

  • Freda October 2, 2013

    I have been getting together with different communities and churches to Go to the Special Master’s office to get some answers.

  • tee October 2, 2013

    I email them and received an email back stating that this is a large settlement and we can expect to receive our allocation by the end of the calendar year. Oh and to just be patient; a bunch of BS if u ask me

  • mmy October 2, 2013

  • Edith October 11, 2013

    This came from the last update letter. If you call the 800-728-1628 usually someone answers and she will update your information then. Or you can enter your claim number without the letters online and it will verify your info. Please note that in order for a class member’s settlement check to be disbursed, the CADA must have all necessary information for each claimant, including Date of Birth, Current Mailing Address, and Minor Representative/Successor information (if applicable). You can confirm that your information is up to date by submitting an information update – to do so, click here.

  • NIKKI October 12, 2013

    I spoke with someone @ 800-728-1628 to verify if information was corrected. I then asked was the checks mailed out, she informed that checks should be mailed out in Nov. sometime and expect to receive before Thanksgiving

  • BILL October 13, 2013

    I submitted the info on line. i thought they had that when they sent allocation letters. ( what happens if i move on nov. 1st. can the check forward ?

  • Tammy October 14, 2013

    I don’t know why they said November. Balhoff ssinf 3-4 weeks from October 2nd. Our checks should arrive by the end of October.

  • tee October 16, 2013

    To many different stories; I was told by the fema litagation office that checks were being mailed out and if you didn’t receive by the second week of Nov you were to notify them. At the end of the day all we can do is wait; we all want and need our money but I also know I serve an on time God!

  • aahley October 31, 2013

    My reply from the special master was they will be mailed on the 31 of this month an u should receive it a few days later

  • Nikki October 31, 2013

    The Court document that was attached, stated that they have 30 days to disburse check from date document was filed, which was on Oct. 1, so they should be sending checks within a day or so. It’s not what they are saying, they have no choice but to follow what is documented in the court documents.

  • ashly October 31, 2013

    like it actually is gonna do good for the money. i got lung cancer from it ( never have i touched or been around cigarettes in my life im allergic to them) and im only getting $228 for going through chemo and about 1 year in the hospital bill i have is like $90k and they are not even gonna help pay that bill that was caused by their trailers.
