Establishing Liability and Filing a Claim
If you or your family has suffered property damage or health complications because of toxic mold, we can help you file a toxic mold lawsuit. In such cases, recovering compensation will require proof that another party's negligence resulted in the development of the mold. Typically, premises liability cases involving toxic mold include claims against:
Contractors and Developers
Contractors and developers are required to ensure that their projects are up to code and free of mold. If a contractor or developer takes shortcuts, fails to install or build something to code, or is negligent in some other manner, we can hold them responsible when these shortcomings result in toxic mold development.
Suppliers and Manufacturers
Designers, manufacturers, and suppliers of building materials must ensure that those materials are safe for use. If it can be shown that a material was defective in some way, and this led to the development of mold, a product liability claim can be brought against them.
Structures in Florida must be designed with mold resistance in mind. Since humidity in Florida is relatively high, the risk of mold development is significant. If the design of a structure played a role in the development of mold, we can hold the architect liable.
How You Can be Compensated
If you or someone you love was injured or victimized on a commercial property, we will work to establish evidence that your injury resulted from another party's negligence. This can be accomplished by showing that there were inadequate safety measures in place. If it can be proven that a property owner or security company acted negligently, you may be entitled to financial compensation for:
- Medical Bills: You may be eligible to receive compensation for past, present, and future medical bills relating to your injury.
- Loss of Wages: If you are forced to miss work due to an injury, it may be possible to receive compensation for past, present, and future loss of wages.
- Pain and Suffering: If you suffered a traumatic injury or someone in your family was injured or killed, it may be possible to recover damages for the emotional pain and suffering this caused you.
- Loss of Quality of Life: If a permanent injury resulting from the incident causes irreparable damage to your quality of life, you may be eligible for monetary compensation.
Furthermore, if it can be proven that the parties responsible acted with gross negligence, it may also be possible to pursue punitive damages. Punitive damages are fees leveraged against the negligent party for the purpose of punishment. No matter the circumstances of your negligent security lawsuit, we will do everything possible to maximize your claim.
