Toxic Mold Injuries

Mold is a microscopic form of fungus that thrives in warm, moist environments both indoors and outdoors.

Spores carry mold throughout the environment and multiply rapidly by digesting whatever surface they come to rest upon, including wood, carpeting, food and other natural and manmade materials.

Some scientists estimate that there are hundreds of thousands of different varieties of mold throughout the world.

We are able to peacefully coexist with many strains of mold. Indeed, mold has even saved millions of lives by leading to the development of penicillin.

However, a few molds can cause serious personal injury or even be deadly. The toxic varieties of mold give off a toxic substance known as mycotoxin, which is believed to be responsible for the majority of the health problems associated with mold.

The most harmful variety of mold is Stachybotrys, or black mold, which is frequently found in water-damaged building materials.

Mold Conditions

Mold sensitivity can lead someone to experience nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, and minor breathing discomfort as a result of mold exposure. However, for other individuals, mold can cause much more serious side effects such as fever, respiratory distress and diseases, asthma, severe allergies, skin rashes and even brain damage from long-term exposure to mold.

There are many parties who can potentially be held responsible in mold cases-contractors, builders, subcontractors, developers, architects, landlords, construction managers, mold removal contractors and others.

The potential damages include all health-related injuries, the cost of any mold remediation, and property damages.
