Understanding Your Landlord’s Legal Responsibilities
Children who ingest lead paint can end up with cognitive problems, speech impediments and other serious, permanent brain injuries. Many children with serious lead poisoning are unable to compete in a competitive school environments or eventually perform work in any but the lowest-paying occupations.
In New York, when landlords know that there are children aged seven or younger in their buildings, they must take appropriate steps to safely remove lead paint. Act Quickly to Protect Your Child from Lead Poisoning
If you are concerned that your child may have been exposed to lead in your home, you should get a blood test done right away. If lead poisoning is caught soon enough, medical procedures such as chelation therapy can be used to lessen the impact of the exposure.
If your landlord acted negligently or failed to obey New York’s lead abatement laws, your child may be entitled to monetary compensation for his or her pain and suffering, and other damages. Contact Our New York City Lead Poisoning Attorneys Today for a Free Consultation
