The Legal Implications of Negligent Exposure to Lead Paint
If you live in a building built prior to 1978 you may be exposed to lead paint. Peeling paint is a common sign that you may have lead paint problems. Insurance companies’ attorneys’ main goal is to shift responsibility away from the landlord, property owner or whoever their client may be. The last thing they want is for you to collect on the policy they hold on the property owner or manager. In short, their job is to see you are not compensated.
Our job is to protect you from them, preserve your rights and see that you get the maximum amount for your or your child’s injuries from lead paint poisoning.
