Toxic Mold

Today, mold and toxic mold are increasingly the subject of health concerns and lawsuits. If you have developed health problems, suffered property damage, or incurred other types of losses because of a mold infestation, you may be able to file a legal claim to get compensation for your injuries or losses, including the cost of getting rid of the mold (known as mold remediation).

If you or a family member have been harmed by toxic mold, you may have negligence legal claims against:

  • Your landlord or property managers

  • Previous owners, if they knew about the mold and didn't disclose the problem

  • Contractors who built your apartment or home

  • Suppliers or manufacturers of defective building materials, such as wood that was already moldy

As such, you may have a legal right to recover the costs of:

  • Inspecting your property

  • Repairing the structure

  • Replacing ruined household items

  • Housing expenses during repairs

  • Paying for current and future medical expenses, or emotional distress
