San Diego Mold Lawyer
California Mold Litigation Attorney
San Francisco, Phoenix, Las Vegas
In recent decades, building construction methods have been refined to the point that houses and office buildings no longer have the ability to "breathe." Walls and ceilings that are double insulated to conserve energy expended in heating and air conditioning become traps for dust and mold. Homeowners and workers in "sick buildings" often claim that they have been physically harmed as a result of construction defects that encouraged growth and spread of mold.
Campbell, Lauter & Murphy, Attorneys at Law, is a well-established construction law firm with offices in San Diego, San Francisco and other locations. Our San Diego mold lawyers represent defendants more often than plaintiffs in cases alleging injury by toxic mold types such as black mold. Where there is very significant injury and no conflict of interest, we are also ready to represent plaintiffs — the injured parties.
Construction defect cases involving water or mold often require input from medical experts knowledgeable about allergens. Allergists assist us in defending our construction law clients in personal injury cases. Allergists and other experts often inform us that the typical home contains thousands of harmless molds. We often notice mold in a shower stall, but in fact, many homes contain mold in walls, under windows and in basements, as well.
The presence of excessive amounts of mold in a house is often the result of construction defects. Residents of homes infected with mold may become sick when mold rots wood inside walls or is associated with water leakage. However, after careful analysis by expert witnesses such as allergists, we find that less than 10% of alleged personal injury claims having to do with mold do in fact have merit.
