The Law Office of William J. Luse has filed two lawsuits alleging that Horry County Schools did not adequately protect teachers and students from exposure to toxic mold. One of the suits is on behalf of a teacher, and the other is on behalf of an elementary school student.
The teacher worked at three separate schools between 2016 and 2019, where she experienced symptoms of mold exposure. She reported the mold issues to maintenance staff and the principal of St. James Elementary. The lawsuit alleges that the district neglected to make the necessary fixes to protect its classrooms.
