Toxic mold exposure is harmful to residents of a home or apartment. In many cases, the home’s mold is a product of water damage in the house. This damage and the resulting black mold can be linked to various causes including construction defects or design defects. In some unforeseen instances, the roots of toxic mold and the health problems resulting from mold-related injuries can occur from burst water pipes or damage caused by a storm. The moisture that builds up quickly from these water problems creates a need for mold remediation, which can be very costly.
What is Toxic Mold Exposure?
Because of the cost of mold remediation, homeowners and landlords of rental properties depend on insurance companies to cover them for toxic mold claims and assist with mold litigation. This means the insurance company may be responsible for covering mold remediation expenses, including the clean-up of physical damage in the home and any mold-related injuries, such as ongoing issues with a person’s immune system, that stem from the exposure to toxic mold in the home.
Often it is necessary to seek additional damages for personal injuries related to mold exposure or aggravated existing illnesses that come from being around a toxic mold. Many homeowners’ insurance policies do cover mold damage and mold remediation costs, despite the insurance company’s claims for exclusions. If a covered loss creates mold growth or mold exposure under your homeowners’ insurance policy, your insurance company should be responsible for the costs of mold remediation, which can be substantial.
But if the insurance company ignores a toxic mold claim or delays processing such a claim causing additional damage, in some jurisdictions, the insurance company will be liable for other damages.
The incidence of toxic mold exposure has significantly increased throughout the United States in the past decades. The types of mold that spark the symptoms of toxic mold are getting into homes and residences in major population centers like Houston, Los Angeles, San Diego, and New York. The recent tropical storm season and an increase in hurricanes in Florida have also seen a spike in cases there. But toxic mold cases and mold-related injuries are also growing in Jenkintown, PA. And that’s why the experienced toxic mold attorneys at Saffren & Weinberg are putting the word out that they are here to help.
