Claiming workers' compensation for mold-related illnesses

Toxic mold can go unnoticed for a long period of time, but it can also cause a great deal of damage to a person's body. It can also be difficult to blame for certain conditions since some people are more sensitive to toxic mold than others. For example, people who suffer from ailments such as asthma or general allergies have a much higher propensity to suffer the effects of toxic mold.

This blog will provide a brief overview on the effects of toxic mold and what a worker can do if he or she thinks he or she is entitled to workers' compensation for undue exposure to toxic mold.

The medical confusion

One frustration for those suffering from the effects of toxic mold is that medical experts tend to disagree on the effects and connections with other illnesses. There is also no solid consensus on what amount of mold exposure is a safe or healthy amount.

Illnesses linked to toxic mold

Many people that are sensitive to toxic mold have reported that their allergies have become heightened. Many also suffer from breathing problems, watery eyes, sinus issues and existing conditions such as asthma becoming worse. Flu symptoms and fever are also common. Extreme conditions associated with exposure to toxic mold also include brain damage and memory loss, and in some cases, death.

If you have been exposed to toxic mold in your workplace and it has damaged your health to the point that you needed time off work or experienced detrimental suffering, you are likely to be entitled to workers' compensation. It is advisable to seek guidance and advice from an experienced attorney to know the best way to approach your case.
