The following blog article was written for Webb Law Group, APC. It has been edited for length and content for this blog.
In Late November of 2019, Webb Law Group filed a complaint with the Superior Court of the State of California. It alleged that LINCOLN MILITARY PROPERTY MANAGEMENT and others failed to properly act on reports of mold contamination. Consequently, their collective failure to act and repair their properties resulted in the personal injury of two children.
Originally, Webb Law Group was approached by a family who had been living in one of the Lincoln homes on Camp Pendleton. The family had recently discovered that their son’s medical and behavioral deterioration was, in fact, the result of mold. This mold remained because the property management company had failed to properly test for and remove it.
The family made multiple complaints to Lincoln Military Property Management beginning soon after their initial move-in date. At the time, the family was given no specific cause to consider the mold to be toxic or hazardous. Instead, they were instructed to spray bleach rather than find the root of the problem.
The Case Details
Lincoln failed to properly document the reports of mold and failed to fix appliance leaks. Lincoln Military Housing failed to provide or maintain a habitable environment for their family. They fraudulently represented that the property was habitable. Meanwhile, their son began to experience physical health symptoms including eczema and breathing issues, as well as mental deterioration and behavioral problems.
The family began to take their son to various pediatricians and behavioral specialists. However, things only got worse as time went on. It was not until many years later that a visit to a new doctor alerted them to possible mold contamination as the culprit of their son’s disorders. Strains of toxic molds were present in his body.
At this point, their son was properly diagnosed as suffering from PANS (Pediatric Acute-beginning Neuropsychiatric Syndrome). Mold contamination was the cause. Afterward, the family sought legal counsel from the team at Webb Law Group, APC. Since then, other families with similar claims have come forward and approached us for legal advice.
The Claims Against Lincoln Military Housing
As a consequence of Lincoln Military Housing’s poor maintenance and upkeep of the property, the space in which family’s resided became hazardous to the health of the family members, in particular, their son who was only six years old at the time they took up residence in the Lincoln property on Camp Pendleton.
Lincoln Military Housing had a duty to properly maintain and manage the leased properties. They had a duty to these families to use ordinary care for the preservation of the leased property and to maintain it in good repair, to repair all deteriorations, its fixtures, components, systems and/or structures.
Unbeknownst to these families, the property was uninhabitable and unfit for human occupation. This was the result of construction defects and deficiencies, failing building components and systems, and improper and negligent, careless, and reckless maintenance and repair. This all contributed to water and moisture intrusion, causing microbial/mycological contamination and infestation of the subject property. In the end, this rendered the property unsafe for habitation and caused the families economic and non-economic hardship.
