Visalia Toxic Mold Lawyer

Living or working around mold is unpleasant. It has an offensive odor, can irritate allergies, and more. When mold is toxic, however, it is extremely dangerous. Mold spores are like dust. They can travel far, and they are everywhere. Mold is virtually everywhere, from the air we breathe to the homes we live in to our workspaces. While there are known to be hundreds of different types of mold in the United States, the majority of them do not pose any risk to people. On the other hand, toxic mold can have devastating consequences. If you have developed an illness or suffered other harm due to toxic mold, you may be entitled to financial compensation, known as damages. To claim the full damages you deserve, you must determine who is liable for the exposure, and this is not easy. Our Visalia toxic mold lawyer can help you determine if someone else is at fault.

Determining Liability for Toxic Mold Exposure

The courts view liability for mold exposure very seriously because it is such a toxic substance. Someone else could be liable if you were exposed on their property. For example, companies that construct buildings and people or entities that maintain them have a legal duty to ensure that mold is not present in the building and that the risk of growth is minimized. When mold is found, those responsible for maintenance have a responsibility to correct the problem in a timely manner.

Generally speaking, landlords have an obligation to maintain their rental units, as well. If a tenant informs the landlord of a mold problem and it is not corrected, the landlord could be held liable. This is particularly true if many tenants have complained about mold yet the landlord refused to address the problem.

There are many different entities that can act negligently and be held liable for damages caused by toxic mold. Some of the most common of these include:

  • Property management companies
  • Property owners
  • Employers
  • Architects
  • Roofers
  • Heating and ventilation companies
  • Plumbers

When determining who is liable for your injuries, it is always recommended that you first speak with a Visalia toxic mold attorney.
