With moisture comes mold — and, unfortunately, with mold comes illness. Those who fail to address the proliferation of toxic mold exhibit negligence, leading to considerable harm for those who lack the means to protect themselves. Businesses and individuals guilty of such negligence can and should be held accountable in court.
As a victim of mold exposure, you can help deliver the justice you’re entitled to, while also alleviating related financial concerns by securing damages. The right mold lawyer can guide you through the complications of the legal process to ensure a favorable outcome.
Common Injuries and Illnesses Caused By Mold
Mold thrives in damp, dark spaces. While many molds are harmless in small amounts, certain types can prove toxic if large infestations occur. Unfortunately, the medical community has yet to reach a consensus regarding which diseases it prompts and what, exactly, constitutes a toxic level. In general, however, adverse symptoms are most likely when the mold concentration found inside a structure exceeds the concentration present outdoors. This high concentration could lead to the following illnesses or injuries:
- Nasal congestion
- Respiratory problems
- Skin rashes
- Brain damage
- Immune system suppression
Often, mold amplifies existing conditions, such as allergies and asthma. Children, seniors, and individuals with autoimmune disorders may be especially vulnerable to severe respiration issues and a myriad of other health concerns.
Why Hire a Toxic Mold Lawyer?
If you have suffered mold injuries due to the negligence of a landlord or some other individual or business, you deserve support from an attorney who cares. While consulting with your mold injury lawyer, you can determine whether your case holds a realistic chance of success — and how best to proceed. By employing a proactive approach, your attorney can maximize your potential to secure damages for medical expenses, lost wages, damaged property, and even emotional suffering.
Strategic legal representation is critical, as mold injury cases can be extremely complicated. Not only can it be difficult to prove a toxic level of mold in a particular environment, you may struggle to demonstrate that your symptoms are directly related to the identified mold. Determined to keep damages to a minimum, the other side may claim that allergies and other pre-existing conditions are entirely to blame for your current symptoms.
