Because many apartment dwellers claim to suffer from various medical illnesses resulting from mold, these adverse health effects of mold frequently end up in courts.
Just last week, a lower court decision dismissing a plaintiff’s mold personal injury claim against her landlord was reversed, in spite of hearing the plaintiff’s expert testimony establishing that mold was capable of causing the medical ailments she experienced, and her treating physician said that her symptoms were caused by exposure to toxic molds.
Why did the lower court initially award summary judgment to the landlord on insufficiency of the current epidemiological evidence? The case was reinstated because mold-related injury is not disallowed, just that it needs sufficient scientific proof.
