Brittany Murphy's mom blames toxic mold for death

December 19, 2011 - Washington

Brittany Murphy's mother has claimed that toxic mold found in the Hollywood star's swanky home had killed her daughter and her son-in-law, and now she wants somebody to pay.

The 'Sin City' actress had died from Pneumonia in 2009 and five months later, her husband also passed away from the same disease.

Sharon Murphy had initially claimed that the people who built the house were to be blamed for the mold that caused their condition-but according to a new lawsuit, Sharon has alleged that she was duped by her lawyers into giving up her rights to sue the builders for wrongful death.

Sharon claimed that her lawyers had convinced her to accept a settlement offer for the construction defects back in January ... but they had failed to explain that she would never be able to go after the builders for their alleged role in Brittany's death.

Now, Sharon has hired Michael Marzban to sue her former lawyers for legal malpractice-and wants them to pay her what she could have won in a wrongful death suit ... and other damages.
