Denver, CO asked in Personal Injury for Colorado

Q: My water heater in my appartment was leaking and created a lot of bad mold, got me sick. Do I have grounds for sueing?

The flood unit is coming by tomorrow to assess. I asked if it was safe, they said no, not ideal. No offers to put me up in a hotel or another apartment. I've been sick for well over a month with extensive lung and throat damage. No idea on how long it has been leaking but there was no water until February 28th and that was very minimal. I have pictures and witnesses.

A: A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a general matter nationwide, mold cases can be difficult and some law firms do not like to handle them. The injuries and damages tend to be less clear cut than in other forms of injury cases. In terms of your question, no one here could speculate on how such a case would go for you. You could reach to Colorado attorneys to discuss in greater detail - with more detailed information about your injuries, an attorney might be able to offer more meaningful guidance. Good luck
