A: A South Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for the ordeal this has caused you. I can only speak for the personal injury-related aspects of your question. You could reach out to law firms to try to arrange a free initial consult. Gather what information you have in terms of medical documentation. However, many injury firms that handle traditional injury litigation are reluctant to deal with mold cases. In terms of the issues related to habitability, your lease, etc., a landlord-tenant attorney should advise. Good luck
