Taking Legal Action When Lead Poisoning Occurs
Holding New York Property Owners Responsible For Dangerous Lead Levels And Toxic Paint Since 1950
At first, the dangers of lead paint may seem minimal. Property owners and landlords, though, are subject to numerous laws that hold them responsible for lead poisoning injuries and that describe lead’s dangers, which can include:
- Damage to the brain, kidney, and cardiovascular and nervous systems
- Developmental issues
- Damage to the reproductive system
- Cognitive deficits
- Hearing loss
- Wrongful death due to toxins

Knowledgeable In Investigating And Handling Lead Poisoning Claims
Children are the most common victims of lead paint injuries. Often, lead paint has been painted over but negligent property maintenance has led to a chipping away of the safe paint layer. The under-layer of lead paint then chips off and is consumed by kids, who may be attracted to its sweet taste.
Our lawyers work with in-house investigators and in-house medical experts to investigate injuries caused by dangerous premises and goods with lead paint, then use decades of legal experience to aggressively negotiate and litigate for injured clients’ full compensation.
