Lead Paint Poisoning
Your Legal Rights
According to the US Government’s Center for Disease Control, there are nearly 4 million households with children living in them that are exposed to lead. The main source of lead poisoning in children is lead paint. Although lead-based paints have been banned since 1978, many homes built before 1978 have chipped or deteriorating paint which can easily be ingested by a child. Lead paint poisoning is dangerous, and can have permanent, long-term disabling effects on your child, yet it often has no immediate visible symptoms.
To determine whether your child has been poisoned, contact your family doctor or local health department today. Here are some things you should know:
- If your child has been the victim of lead paint poisoning, he or she may be entitled to money damages – even if he or she appears to be perfectly healthy.
- Even if your child is up to 21 years old, and was poisoned a long time ago, he or she may be entitled to money damages.
- If your child has been poisoned by lead paint in your apartment or home, your landlord may be liable for money damages, and can be required to remove the lead paint.
