Mold Exposure and Personal Injury Cases in Florida: Understanding Your Rights

Brubaker Injury Law

September 28, 2022

Mold exposure can have serious health implications, and when it occurs due to negligence, victims may seek compensation through personal injury claims. In Florida, where the humid climate fosters mold growth, understanding your legal rights is crucial. Let’s explore toxic mold, liability, and the potential damages victims can recover.

Toxic Mold: A Hidden Threat

What Is Toxic Mold?

  • Mold thrives in moist environments and can develop due to water leaks, floods, or poor ventilation.
  • While not all mold is toxic, certain types, such as Stachybotrys chartarum(commonly known as “black mold”) and toxigenic Aspergillus, produce harmful mycotoxins.
  • Exposure to toxic mold can lead to severe health issues, including chronic cough, sneezing, nausea, asthma, and skin rashes.

Proving Liability:

  • To pursue a personal injury claim, victims must establish that:
    • The property owner or manager had a duty to maintain a safe environment.
    • The mold exposure resulted from negligence (e.g., failure to address leaks or inadequate ventilation).
    • The exposure caused harm to the victim.

Seeking Legal Guidance

  • Consult an Attorney:
    • If you suspect chronic mold exposure, consult an experienced personal injury attorney.
    • They can assess your case, advise you on legal options, and guide you through the process.
  • Act Promptly:
    • In Florida, victims have a limited time to pursue claims (typically two years).
    • If you believe your case is being neglected, consider changing attorneys sooner rather than later.

Remember, mold exposure can have lasting effects on your health. Seek professional advice to protect your rights and seek rightful compensation.
