Health Risks of Mold Exposure

Mold exists in many homes and buildings throughout the Beverly Hills area. However, when a mold colony grows, it can present a health risk for people who are regularly exposed to the mold. While you might not know the mold is there, you can certainly still feel the effects on your health. If you believe you were sick and needed medical treatment due to mold exposure by a property or business owner, you should speak with a mold lawyer in Beverly Hills right away.

Some people are not as sensitive to mold, and they might not feel any adverse health effects. Others have greater sensitivity to mold or preexisting health conditions that exacerbate the effects of mold. These individuals might experience:

  • Congestion
  • Eye irritation
  • Skin irritation
  • Wheezing and difficulty breathing
  • Asthma
  • Coughing
  • Other upper respiratory conditions

The effects can be particularly serious for children, as early exposure to mold might lead them to develop chronic and life-threatening asthma and respiratory conditions.

Many people who suffer symptoms of mold exposure need medical help, which might include:

  • Emergency room or urgent care visits
  • Hospitalization
  • Doctor and specialist visits
  • Breathing treatments at home or at the hospital
  • Medications

The costs of this treatment can add up quickly, and people exposed to mold can miss school or work, as well as experience pain and suffering due to their symptoms. If you have been exposed to mold at work, in a rental unit, or anywhere else, you should speak with a lawyer about potential financial recovery.
