The home I bought has toxic mold. What are my rights and who can be liable?
Claims of toxic mold are increasingly being made within the context of a single family home, regardless of whether it falls in the high or low end of the valuation spectrum. This makes sense because damages flowing from bodily injuries are specific to the individuals within a particular home. Single family home cases can involve appreciable monetary amounts claimed as damages for both personal injury and property damage.
In these cases, the action of the homeowner generally is followed by a lawsuit against one or more parties who allegedly bear the blame under theories such as defective construction, non-disclosure, fraudulent concealment, and breach of fiduciary duty. The defendants in these suits include contractors, design professionals, realtors, inspectors, remediation experts and lawyers who may have been involved at any juncture in the transaction.
