Tracy Toxic Mold Lawyer

Toxic mold is extremely harmful to a person’s health. Even in the best of scenarios, people may experience slight irritation and allergies. In the worst of cases, toxic mold can lead to very serious infections. If you have suffered harm due to exposure to toxic mold and it is the fault of a negligent property owner who allowed the toxin to exist on their premises, you may be able to file a claim against them for financial compensation. Determining whether someone else’s negligence is to blame for the harm you suffered is very challenging. Proving your claim also presents many difficulties. Our Tracy toxic mold lawyer outlines the parties that may be liable for toxic mold exposure and how to obtain the compensation you need.

Landlord Liability for Toxic Mold

Landlords, as well as a property management company they use to maintain rental units, have a legal obligation to ensure tenants are not exposed to toxic mold. This requires proper maintenance of the units, and a thorough inspection before any tenant moves in.

If toxic mold starts to develop in a rental unit, landlords must correct and repair the damage as soon as possible so tenants do not suffer harm. When landlords fail to fulfill this duty, they can be held liable. You may be able to file a claim against your landlord based on a breach of implied warranty of habitability, breach of contract, or negligence.

Toxic mold develops when excess water is present on a premises. Water can enter a property through roofs, windows, plumbing leaks, and siding. It is important that landlords promptly address any flooding or leaking within 24 to 48 hours so mold does not start to form. Our Tracy toxic mold attorney can determine if your landlord breached their legal duty.

Construction Company Liability for Toxic Mold

Toxic mold can also develop on a property when water issues are caused by construction defects. Defective plumbing, roofs, and windows can all result in water issues in a home that results in the formation of toxic mold. If your home is relatively new and was recently built, and you have learned of a construction defect that caused toxic mold to develop, you may be able to file a claim against the construction company or contractor. In Tracy, as throughout the rest of California, you have up to 10 years from the date construction was complete to do so.

Previous Owner Liability for Toxic Mold

There is a lot of information homeowners, and owners of other types of real estate, must disclose to any purchaser before selling the property. This includes whether toxic mold is present on the premises. Our Tracy toxic mold lawyer consults with experts to determine the sale price of the property and the actual value due to toxic mold.
