Toxic Mold Injury Lawyer in California

Across the US and in particular California, toxic mold has become a growing concern in most residential and commercial properties. In fact, mold injury suits are no longer unique in the courtrooms. Mold injury mainly occurs in offices and rental premises that are in poor conditions. Currently, there are 10,000 mold injury cases filed in the United States’ cities California included. 

California is among the pioneers regarding toxic mold. Under the Toxic Mold Act of 2001, the state department of health services was tasked with determining the permissible mold exposure limit and then devising measures for gauging the risk it poses. The same act demands that the landlords and all those who sell commercial and residential properties have to inform the current occupants in writing any present and past presence of mold in the property

Filing a Mold Injury Lawsuit

If you develop health problems, lose property or any sustain any other loss due to mold infestation in a commercial or residential property, then the law allows you to file a legal claim. A mold injury case requires that you provide compelling evidence to increase the chances of settling the case. It means documenting everything including the accurate date the injury occurred, photos of the mold-infested parts, receipts and bills of inspections, medical appointments, reports and all records. 

Who Is Liable for Mold Injury? 

In most cases, mold infestation and subsequent infection result from negligence. It’s the duty of the property owners or managers to maintain the condition of the property. Your attorney has to prove that by failing to address the mold problem in time, the property owner or manager was in breach of duty. 

Under the California toxic statute, the landlord and the property dealers have to inform the occupants of the past of current mold infestation. The seller will be accountable for the mold injury where the plaintiff wasn’t told before occupying the property.

Also, the builders and contractors may be culprits if they failed to disclose the possibility of mold growth even with enough knowledge.

Lastly, the company that provided subpar building supplies likely to encourage mold infestation may be held accountable. 

Settling a Mold Injury Case

If you win a case, you’ll be compensated for the injuries sustained, and losses suffered. In most cases, the court will grant you damages for income lost due to days off, cost of medical bills, property ruined, repairs incurred, inspection costs, physical & emotional pain and suffering.

Are You Injured

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case.
