Mold-related health claims can be very difficult from a litigation standpoint. Our firm receives many inquiries from people seeking personal injury damages because of mold exposure. As is often the case, however, people have not tested their condominium units/homes/apartments for the presence of mold. Mold testing will provide a person with a detailed analysis showing exactly the types of mold that a person has been exposed to. The advantage of this information is that a doctor can than specifically test, for example, the allergic reaction caused by the particular mold exposure. Without specific testing, though, proving a personal injury case will be extremely difficult. Irrespective of any type of mold-related legal action, it is important to at least know what someone has been exposed to in order to seek the appropriate medical care.
