Young children can be poisoned by lead paint when they live in a home with flaking and peeling lead based paint.  Even though lead paint is no longer on the market, when landlords paint over it, lead remains in the layers of paint underneath.  It can be present in any house or apartment built prior to 1978.  It is sad that landlords fail to completely strip the walls before repainting, leaving this hazard in place.  When this hazard is present, and your child is suffering as a result, that’s when it’s time to call Queens Lead Poisoning Attorneys Wittenstein & Wittenstein.

Childhood lead poisoning can occur whenever young children live and play in an environment contaminated by flaking and peeling lead-based paint. Unfortunately, lead poisoning remains a serious public health problem in old urban centers, where most homes were built before 1978, when lead paint was widely used on interior and exterior surfaces. Although lead paint is no longer used in residential housing, it still presents a serious hazard, especially when newer layers of paint peel or flake, exposing old painted surfaces. Too often, absentee landlords ignore dangerous paint conditions even when they know that deteriorated paint surfaces endanger their tenants’ children.

Lead paint poisoning cases require investigation to determine exactly who’s at fault.  At Queens Lead Poisoning Attorneys Wittenstein & Wittenstein, we have the expertise and resources to do this.  This is how we will create a strong lead poisoning case.  If your child is diagnosed with having a lead reading in his or her blood of 15 or higher, please call us for a FREE CONSULTATION to determine whether you can make a case for lead poisoning.  We will help you get the best care for your child and holds the landlords responsible for their actions.
