MY SON IS SICK BECAUSE OF LEAD IN MY APARTMENT. CAN I SUE MY LANDLORD?

The landlord may be responsible for lead poisoning if they knew about its presence on their property and did not take reasonable steps to eliminate it or warn their tenants about the potential risks. If your apartment building was built before 1978, it is very likely that there is lead-based paint. It was in this year that the federal government banned the use of lead-based paint. If your landlord does not take the necessary steps to address the hazards that the presence of lead in their property may cause, they may be held liable for any injuries caused by lead poisoning.

Lead poisoning occurs when it accumulates in the body, often over months or years. Even small amounts of lead can cause serious health problems. Children under 6 years old are especially vulnerable to lead poisoning, which can severely affect physical and mental development. At very high levels, lead poisoning can be fatal. Children can get lead into their bodies by breathing or swallowing lead dust, as well as by eating soil or paint chips containing lead. Doctors say that no level of lead in the blood is safe. Symptoms that children may present include developmental delays, learning difficulties, irritability, fatigue, and hearing loss. If you or your children experience symptoms of lead poisoning, seek medical attention immediately.

BRAIN DAMAGE CAUSED BY LEAD

Medical studies have shown that lead levels in a child's blood can negatively affect intelligence, attention span (ADHD), academic performance, and socialization skills.

COMPLICATIONS FROM LEAD CONSUMPTION

If a child ingests lead, this can lead to serious health problems. Lead poisoning occurs when it accumulates in the body, often over months or years. Even small amounts of lead can damage the brain, kidneys, and other organs.

LEARNING PROBLEMS

Children exposed to very high levels of lead are three to five times more likely to have teachers identify issues associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

HEARING LOSS DUE TO LEAD CONSUMPTION

Lead exposure can affect hearing by reducing listening to capacity, ultimately leading to loss. Lead is a metal that can cause damage to the brain and the nervous system; a set of organs and structures involved in auditory function.

ADHD DUE TO LEAD

Certain environmental factors, such as lead exposure in childhood, can cause attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Some symptoms include Lack of concentration, Disorganization, Impulsivity, Outbursts of anger, Forgetfulness, Restlessness, and anxiety.

ANEMIA DUE TO LEAD CONSUMPTION

One of the causes of lead poisoning is anemia in children, as it decreases the ability of red blood cells to transport oxygen throughout the body. Lead also affects the absorption of calcium, thus weakening the bones and inhibiting proper growth.

Castelblanco Law Group has 27 years of experience representing tenants living in unsafe and unsanitary conditions due to negligent property owners.
