Did you know that there is a silent and often unseen organism that is growing in your home which can cause significant respiratory illnesses? That’s right, mold. Although extremely common outdoors, mold can be present in your home causing you illness without you being aware. Toxic mold, sometimes referred to as black mold, can grow uncontrolled in the walls of your home, apartment, or condominium. Caused by leaks which are hidden, the extent of mold growth can be shocking when discovered. Most victims of mold exposure are young children or older adults whose immunities from toxic mold are not as strong as the average adult. If you have respiratory problems, including asthma, or have visited the doctor lately because of uncontrolled coughing, call the Law Offices of Laurence P. Posner for a free consultation to determine if you are the victim of toxic mold exposure.
One of our clients and her family were represented by the Law Offices of Laurence P. Posner in a bitter dispute over the source and effect of toxic mold in her apartment. The client — a 5 year old girl — had been born into an apartment that was infested with toxic mold, through no fault of her own, and suffered from chronic asthma due to the many years of exposure to toxic mold. The apartment owners, despite being repeatedly advised that there were strange black spots that kept reappearing in the apartment, took absolutely no action to determine if the source of the problem was dangerous. Nor did they do anything to ensure that the family lived in a "habitable," safe environment. The terrible neglect by the apartment owners and their later efforts to hide critical evidence resulted in a very large settlement for our 5 year old client and her parents.
Do not wait to let mold cause debilitating life altering injuries to you or your family members, particularly your children or elder parents.
