Can i sue my Landlord for being sick from Mold in my Apartment?

Asked over 1 year ago - Piscataway, NJ

I have a lung disease. I have been sick since Jan 2013, me and doctor couldn't understand why i was being so sick. Found out there was mold in the apartment. Landlord didn't do anything to resolve the mold problem. I was let out of the lease, that was it. I did call an Environmental Company to come out and check, I paid to have mold kit tested. Now that I'm in my new apartment I'm still sick. My doctor said the spores are in my property.

    Answered . I agree with my colleagues - you should speak with a personal injury attorney at your earliest opportunity to discuss the situation in detail. You may have a cause of action for lung disease, as well as remediation of any mold in your current property brought over in furnishings from the previous apartment (if any), among other potential damages.

    Answered . Mold exposure cases are extremely challenging scientifically. It would be important to know from what injury you are suffering. You can give my office a call to discuss.
