The question of when to get a toxic mold attorney is a question that a lot of people would rather not answer. To reach a point in time or to be in a situation where one is faced with having to answer this question has very serious implications.
First of all, there is the matter of determining if there is indeed mold growth present in your place of residence. Have any members of your family experienced symptoms related to molds, or been sick at any point the cause of which has been determined by a reputable health professional to be molds in your home? To further support this claim, you should take the next step by having a certified mold inspector test your home. If the evidence presents itself to be correct then you should set up a meeting with a toxic mold attorney to know what your options are.
Litigations, as everyone knows of course, are expensive and stressful. A toxic mold attorney should not only be good, but sympathetic. He should be able to offer you options and solutions that should make the issue simpler and not more complicated. Depending on the seriousness of the case especially with prior health problems, the toxic mold attorney should be able to define the case around the needs of your family in such a way that your financial needs are not compromised, or the welfare of your children be put at further risk.
In most litigations involving toxic molds, the situation is far often better in cases when a large group is involved and not just a single family. Should you happen to live in tenement housing, an apartment duplex or condominium with such problems and with other affected residents, filing a collective lawsuit can be easier to deal with.
The fact is, molds can grow anywhere and other places to be on the look-out for are your work-place and your children’s school. Nobody really wants to be involved in a lawsuit and yet once you’ve thought about the situation at least ten times and taken the necessary steps to determine the validity of your claims by legal means, then there’s no reason why you should pick up the phone for an appointment with a toxic mold attorney.
Ultimately, the lesson here is to be better safe than sorry.
