Modesto Toxic Mold Lawyer

Mold in the home or workplace is unpleasant, but when it is toxic, it is far more than just annoying. Toxic mold is extremely dangerous. When mold is present, the spores are like dust. They are everywhere. Virtually all buildings, including homes, contain some sort of mold. In the United States, there are hundreds of species of mold, but not all of them are harmful to humans. When mold is toxic, though, it can cause some of the most serious harm. If you have been exposed to mold and are now suffering serious harm, another party may be liable for paying damages. Determining liability for toxic mold exposure is not always easy, though. Below, our Modesto toxic mold lawyer explains what you need to know.

Who is Liable for Toxic Mold Exposure?

As with any other type of toxic substance, the courts take toxic mold exposure very seriously. The party responsible for the exposure depends on how you were exposed.

In many cases, the people or companies responsible for constructing or maintaining a building are liable. These entities should make sure mold is not present in the building. If mold develops, these parties should also correct the problem as quickly as possible.

In other cases, landlords have been informed of the presence of mold by multiple tenants, yet they have chosen not to do anything about the problem. In these instances, landlords can be held liable for failing to eliminate the mold so tenants are kept safe.

Some of the most common negligent parties in lawsuits involving toxic mold exposure are as follows:

  • Property owners
  • Property management companies
  • Architects
  • Employers
  • Heating and ventilation companies
  • Roofers
  • Contract plumbers

A Modesto toxic mold attorney can investigate your case to determine who is liable for your injuries.

Common Injuries Caused by Mold

Being exposed to toxic mold can result in a number of long-lasting health issues. These include:

  • Asthma, or the exacerbation of the problem
  • Coughing
  • Chronic fatigue

  • Anxiety and depression

These injuries do not only cause a great deal of pain and discomfort, but they are also very costly to treat. You deserve to receive compensation for your expenses and other losses when someone else was to blame for your exposure.
