Firm Places School District on Notice for Mold Contamination in Elementary Schools

On March 5, 2014, Lieberman Blecher & Sinkevich filed a notice of tort claim on behalf of Stacy Adelizzi, mother of Michael and Maximus Adelizzi, with the Middle Township school district. The family alleges that the elementary schools have been dealing with a mold contamination that has made both children ill. Michael has had to be removed from the school and homeschooled due to his illness, and Maximus is in the process of being removed as well. Both children have been hospitalized for their illness.

The schools were aware of a mold issue in 2012, which was reportedly remediated then. However, Adelizzi’s children have remained ill since then, and symptoms are worst when they are in the schools, indicating an ongoing problem. In December 2013, Michael tested positive for Mycotoxins in his urine, proving there is a continued mold presence. This was corroborated by an environmental report done January 3, 2014 by Compliance Management International, Inc. (CMI), which notes mold was found in one of the elementary schools attended by the Adelizzis.

Mold is a public health hazard, and exposure to it can have serious consequences such as eye and skin irritation, respiratory illness, rashes, memory loss and confusion, lethargy, and other medical conditions. Some people are more sensitive than others to the effects of mold, especially people with lung illness, asthma, immune disorders, and in young children or seniors.

Our firm has over a decade of experience in these matters, which are still relatively new to the medical and legal world as doctors and toxicologists learn more about the health hazards of mold exposure.
