Get Your Children The Care They Need

Lead paint poisoning is a very serious matter that affects children. Even small amounts of lead ingested from eating paint chips can be very dangerous to a child's health as children's bodies absorb lead far easier than adults. If you feel your child has wrongfully been exposed to lead paint you need to consult with a New York lead poisoning attorney to understand your rights and protect your child.

Our attorneys are experienced in lead poisoning cases and understand the seriousness of your child's lead poisoning. Our team of lead paint attorneys works hard to ensure that landlords and any negligent parties are held responsible for injuries or damage caused by lead paint.

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.
