Indio Toxic Mold Lawyer

Toxic mold is extremely dangerous to people’s health. In the best of cases, a person may experience allergies and irritation. In the worst of situations, toxic mold can cause infections that are much more serious. Regardless of how you have been impacted by toxic mold, if you have suffered harm you may be able to file a claim against the negligent party that allowed toxic mold to exist on a property. Determining whether someone else is to blame and identifying the liable party is not always easy. Obtaining the full and fair compensation you need to recover from your injuries also poses certain challenges. Our Indio toxic mold lawyer outlines different parties that may be liable for exposure below.

Toxic Mold and Landlord Liability

Landlords, as well as any management company they use, have a legal duty to make sure rental units are maintained properly prior to accepting any tenants. If toxic mold develops in a rental unit, the landlord has a duty to locate it and repair the damage as quickly as possible. Any time landlords fail to correct a toxic mold situation after they are aware of it, they can be held liable. You may be able to file a claim against your landlord based on negligence, breach of contract, or breach of implied warranty of habitability.

In order for toxic mold to develop, water must be present on the property. Water enters properties through siding, plumbing leaks, windows, and roofs. To ensure mold does not develop on a property, landlords must address water issues within 24 to 48 hours. Our Indio toxic mold attorney can determine whether your landlord failed to meet their legal duty.

Toxic Mold and Construction Company Liability

Construction defects can also cause water issues that lead to toxic mold developing on the premises. Defective windows, roofs, and plumbing can all lead to water issues. If your home was built relatively recently and you have learned of a construction defect that resulted in the growth of toxic mold, you have up to 10 years from the date construction was complete to file a claim against the construction company or contractor.

Toxic Mold and Previous Owner Liability

Owners of real estate must disclose lots of different information to potential buyers before selling their home. One of these is the presence of toxic mold on the premises. A toxic mold attorney in Indo works with experts who can advise on the difference in the price of the property at the time of the sale, and the actual value of the property due to the toxic mold.
