Toxic Mold Lawyers
Alabama Mold Attorneys
When you think of your home, chances are good that you picture a relaxing scene. After all, our homes are supposed to be sanctuaries from the outside world – constructions that safeguard us and protect us. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Sometimes our homes can actively harm our health and result in the need to seek medical attention and compensation. It can be easy to downplay to the dangers of mold, but it is unwise to do so. When found inside buildings, mold can harm both individuals as well as properties.
Some of the health issues related to toxic mold exposure include:
- Lung Damage
- Chest Pain
- Joint Pain
- Liver Disorders
- Brain Injuries
- Skin Rashes
Mold can cause extensive damage to both constructions as well as the property within them, and it doesn’t take long for this to occur. Mold really only needs moisture in order to spread and grow, and this can come from a variety of sources including stucco and roof leaks, grading and drainage problems, and window and plumbing leaks. It can take as few as two days for mold to begin to develop, and it can spread rapidly throughout a building.
Note that the removal of mold can be an extensive and expensive process. If you have found that your home has mold in it, it is possible that the sellers or builders of the property in question could be held responsible for the costs. Reach out to an experienced mold litigation attorney in Alabama for more information.
In addition to the property claims outlined above, it is possible for individuals to become quite ill from mold exposure. If this happens, you might be able to recover medical expenses along with property damage and mold removal costs.
