You should first find lawyers in your area that handle mold cases and then start calling them to discuss your case. I always suggest someone try 3-4 before making any decisions if they all are not taking on your case. Keep trying is the best advice.

If you sue her for Breach of Contract you can then ask her questions in "discovery" to try and find out her financial position. You could then take her deposition and ask further questions. Talk to an attorney to see how viable your case might be.

Your daughter could be covered by her employers Work Comp policy. You should ask the employer for the contact and then file a claim. If they don't have a policy it could then possibly give your daughter some options against the employer. You should talk to a local attorney right away.

You don't have the automatic right to seal records. Most lawsuits are public records but can be redacted. You have to get permission from the court unless a statute allows it. From your question it's hard to know exactly what you are asking.

You should immediately sit down with a Landlord Tenant attorney and/or a personal injury lawyer who handle mold cases. A lot of attorneys don't handle mold cases so you might have to contact a few until you find one. If you find an attorney who can help with both that would be best.
