About toxic mold exposure claims
Toxic mold grows anywhere moisture is present as a result of water damage, leaks, condensation or flooding. It can also enter the space through windows, vents and heating/cooling systems. Mold is most commonly found on indoor surfaces, including pipes, flooring where flooding has occurred, wet cellulose materials, paper and cardboard, ceiling tiles, insulation, drywall and upholstery. Toxic mold claims are typically filed for one of these reasons:
- construction defects
- landlord/tenant breach of warranty of habitability
- failure to reveal mold infestation in a real estate sale
- workplace exposure
Toxic mold exposure claims present two challenges: determining liability and potential damages. To determine a liable party one must first prove the health issues are a direct result of exposure to mold. Potential damages can reach beyond physical and psychological care to include mold removal and reconstruction/repair costs, loss of wages and replacement costs for personal belongings infested with mold. Filing a toxic mold exposure claim requires great attention to detail and thorough documentation. If you feel that you are ready, Team Green is ready to do the work to build the strongest possible case.
