Facing Mold Growth after a Hurricane

The after effects of a hurricane are ongoing, and mold growth is one problem that many people are just beginning to face or soon will face in the future. Mold develops over time, and tends to favor warm, moist areas, which are commonly found after a hurricane. Unfortunately, mold can sometimes develop for a long period of time without your knowledge, exposing you and your family to serious illness. But even if you talk with your insurance company about compensation to treat mold and its effects, the attorneys at Williams Hart know that sometimes hurricane victims do not get the coverage that their policies call for.

Dangers of Mold Growth

Having mold in your home can be extremely dangerous and has the potential to make you very ill. Some of the dangers of mold growth include:

  • Vomiting / stomach illness
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Damage to lungs
  • Exposure to toxins / poisoning

These dangers are not only physically dangerous, but they can also be financial detrimental to property owners as well. Unfortunately, some people cannot get the financial assistance they need from their insurance company to address this dangerous mold due to insurance companies acting in bad faith.
