Toxic Mold

Our premises liability attorney explains how this law effectively works. He tells us how important it is to obtain and retain a lawyer that you trust and feel comfortable with in order to achieve desired results. He explains that his firm is small enough to get to know clients on a personal level, which usually results in a more comfortable case.

The Causes of Toxic Mold

Florida residences and businesses are particularly susceptible to developing toxic mold problems due to the high level of humidity in the region. Additionally, mold growth can also be caused by leaking pipes, previous flooding, or a leaking roof. Mold often grows unnoticed inside walls and under floors, and if left unchecked and untreated, it can become a significant health hazard. In severe cases, mold toxins can cause illness and even death.

Because of the danger that toxic mold poses, homes should be constructed to withstand and resist the development of mold. Whenever possible, materials that are non-porous should be used during construction, and all plumbing should be up-to-date and functioning properly. Furthermore, roofs and walls should be water resistant to help prevent molding. If mold is present in your home, you should take immediate action to have it removed. Toxic mold can greatly affect the respiratory system, and it is particularly dangerous to small children.

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.

Pursuing Compensation

If we believe that mold buildup in your home is the result of another party's negligence, we will work diligently to establish that these parties caused or contributed to the problem. Victims of toxic mold may be eligible for financial compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Loss of wages
  • Property repairs
