Atlanta Toxic Mold

You've probably heard stories about mold infestations and the damage they can cause. You may have expressed skepticism. "It's just mold — how bad can it be?" is a common refrain.

The reality is, not only can mold infestation be hazardous to your health, it can ruin your peace of mind and cause thousands of dollars in property damage. Silent and hard to detect, mold colonies can grow in the space between wall joists and get lodged in your HVAC ducts, causing spores to contaminate all areas of your home. Exposure can cause people to develop respiratory problems or simply become anxious, worrying about the extent of the property damage and the cost of remediation.

The experienced mold exposure attorneys at Morgan & Morgan care deeply about the rights of victims. We fight hard to get compensation for clients who have been displaced from their homes or suffer injury as a result of mold exposure.

Problems With Toxic Mold

Because it grows in hidden places and the spores are no bigger than dust particles, mold can become established and spread without detection. And once it's widespread, it can be difficult to eradicate, requiring professional treatment.

To compound the problem, many homeowners’ policies have a mold exclusion, making it difficult to recover damages. Mold remediation is costly and sometimes requires residents to move into temporary housing while it takes place.

For individuals who rent their home or apartment, there is currently no Georgia state law requiring landlords to disclose concentrations of mold in such properties. Nor is there a specific law detailing a landlord's liability in the case of mold infiltration. Even at the federal level, there are no national public health standards to determine a harmful level of mold.

Because the law is not clear, unscrupulous landlords may choose not to reveal the presence of mold in a dwelling, placing you and your family at risk.

Health Hazards Associated With Mold

The severity of a person's reaction to mold exposure depends on their underlying health and constitution. Individuals with mold allergies and chronic lung conditions may be the most adversely affected. According to the CDC, symptoms include:

  • Cough and throat irritation
  • Nasal stuffiness
  • Respiratory infection
  • Wheezing
  • Asthmatic complications in people with asthma

Moreover, there is evidence to suggest that early exposure to mold in children may lead to the development of asthma later in life.
