Mold is never a pleasant situation to deal with, but when it comes to toxic mold it is not just a case of being unpleasant but also downright dangerous. Toxic mold can cause a wide range of health problems, from respiratory difficulties to death, and toxic mold litigation has become a multi-million dollar industry. There are many people that may be held accountable for toxic mold presence, and usually this comes down to building landlords or employers where the mold is found in either rented accommodations or in the workplace.
Often toxic mold goes undetected for some time, and this can lead to problems in the health department for anyone exposed to the mold unknowingly. However, in some cases employers, landlords, and other responsible parties are made well aware of the presence of the toxic mold by tenants or employees, yet they fail to take any action and allow the toxic mold problem to get worse and to affect those exposed to it at dangerous levels.
This is where a toxic mold lawyer may be required. Anyone that feels that they or their loved ones may have been affected by exposure to toxic mold should seek immediate medical attention. Toxic mold can result in a wide range of medical problems, and these include milder symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, watery eyes, skin rash and itching (dermatitis). However, exposure to toxic mold can also cause far more serious problems, such as serious allergies, asthma exacerbation, respiratory problems, and in some cases can also prove fatal. It is vital that anyone that thinks they may have been affected by toxic mold seeks medical assistance without delay.
Another important step to take if you feel that you or a loved on has been affected by exposure to toxic mold is to seek legal assistance. As with any other type of toxic substance, exposure to toxic mold is not a matter that is taken lightly by the courts, and in many cases the person responsible for the upkeep of the building where the toxic mold has been found is well aware of the presence. It may be that you have been exposed to toxic mold in your rented apartment, and that you and other tenants have repeatedly informed the landlord of the presence of the mold. On the other hand, it may be that you have been exposed to the mold at your place of work, and nothing has ever been done to check for the presence of such molds or to remove any mold that has been identified. In situations such as these, those exposed to the toxic mold could be eligible to claim a fair amount of compensation for the risks and injuries caused by the exposure, and the negligence of those responsible.
There are now many lawyers and law firms available that specialize in litigation concerning toxic substances, such as toxic molds. The rising numbers of those affected by these molds has led to an increase in the number of toxic mold lawyers in operation. Increasing interest in energy efficiency has led to more airtight buildings, and this in turn has led to increasing instance of mold in offices and homes. Also, rising consumer awareness about the effects of toxic mold has led to a rise in the number of cases coming to light. A combination of factors such as these has seen many more people come forward with regards to the effects of toxic mold, and many more negligent parties have been held accountable through the payment of financial compensation to those affected by these molds.
