30. Mold Claims
Mold is a fine, fungal, organic substance that grows in moist environments. Its presence can be absolutely benign - even beneficial - or trigger allergic reaction. The burden of proof of an injury due to mold exposure is not as light as it may have been in the past. It is important to consult an attorney who specializes in mold litigation if you think you may have been injured or had a condition caused by the presence of mold. Toxic mold refers to the "mycotoxins" that some molds generate on their own to thwart the growth of competing molds. The lawyers who deal with mold cases know what you need to do to document your injury.
