Put plainly, toxic mold is dangerous. Toxic mold can cause a number of heath problems, including everything from respiratory problems to death. Many people are not aware that there are a number of people that can be held responsible for toxic mold problems, notably landlords and employers. Often employers and landlords are made aware of the toxic mold problems, but do nothing to remedy the situation, allow the mold problem to get to dangerous levels. Toxic mold develops slowly and many victims are exposed to it for long periods of times without realizing it. This exposure results in exacerbation of current illnesses and can lead to the development of new ones.
The number of cases of exposure to toxic mold is increasing rapidly, with many victims being exposed at work and in their homes. Toxic mold is often the result of defective construction, lack of regular maintenance, poor building materials and lack of governmental regulation and involvement. Toxic mold can also be the result of water intrusion into a home or business. When the water enters the home or business, typically via a roof collapse or water pipe bursting, the mold grows because of the excessive moisture. While homeowner’s insurance will likely cover repairs to the physical damage of the property, it does not help cover the costly medical bills that result from toxic mold related injuries.
If you are a resident or employee that has been exposed to a toxic mold problem, you first need to seek medical attention. Toxic mold can cause asthma exacerbation, breathing problems, serious allergies and sometimes death. After seeking medical attention, you need to consult an experienced toxic mold attorney immediately. If you have been exposed to toxic mold, you likely will have the right to pursue a claim against the person in charge of the upkeep of the building.
