Judge Rules Mold Lawsuits Can Proceed
MBM Insurance Resource Center provides comprehensive insurance coverage for mold and indoor air quality (IAQ) consultants and contractors.
Last month, a U.S. District Court Judge ruled that a group of lawsuits filed by people alleging they have suffered health problems due to mold in military housing can proceed in federal court. The defendant in the lawsuits is a company that manages rental units in a partnership with military bases. According to reports, the plaintiffs have alleged a variety of mold related health issues that range from immune suppression and brain injury to allergic reactions.
These types of lawsuits, involving issues related to mold contamination in indoor environments and people’s health, are filed quite regularly. They occur in homes, businesses, apartments, schools and institutional settings. In the past, many of these lawsuits have named everyone from architects, builders and property management companies to professionals hired to investigate and remediate mold problems in buildings.
“Consultants and contractors who provide IAQ and mold services need to have great insurance coverage due to the nature of their work,” reported Marybeth Mainelli, President of MBM Insurance Resource Center. “For many IAQ consultants and mold remediation contractors, getting affordable coverage that protected their interests has been a challenge in the past. At MBM Insurance Resource Center, we recognized the need for customized coverage from insurance carriers that are leaders in the insurance market for these types of professionals. Not only do the plans we have available provide superior coverage, they also save our customers money.”
MBM recently produced an online video discussing their insurance coverage for mold and IAQ consultants and contractors. It can be seen at: http://youtu.be/d5s4Mcjcb-0
