Find Out Who May Be Liable for Mold Damage to Your Commercial Building in Texas
In addition to the mold, what if an employee or worker at the building claims they suffered toxic levels of mold? The liability to employers and businesses for injury claims due to mold can continue to add up with these types of claims. These claims are real, and commercial property owners are being faced with property losses, future losses to remedy the building, and bodily injury claims if employees were affected by the toxic mold.
This is why it is important to have commercial property insurance. However, insurance companies have been known to deny claims, delay claims, or pay only a portion of the claim. If your commercial property insurer explains that the mold in your commercial building did not cause a direct physical loss to your property, then you need to seek legal advice immediately. Do not take "NO" for an answer. A skilled Texas commercial insurance claim attorney will be able to negotiate on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve.
Although business owners turn to their insurance companies first to cover damages, they are sometimes not the only ones to look toward for coverage of the related mold costs. Commercial property owners need to look at contractors as well. If your building was just constructed or had any type of remodeling done, including windows replaced, the general contractor, builder or company responsible for the inadequate work, poor design or HVAC system may be held liable.
If a contractor is responsible for the mold damage in your commercial building, you may need to file a lawsuit against them for your damages. The contractor's insurance carrier will then get involved, which can be a complicated process. Do not attempt to handle this type of claim on your own. Please call a skilled Texas commercial insurance litigation lawyer to help you understand your insurance rights.
