Lead paint fumes and the ingestion of lead paint chips is a particular hazard to infants. We have successfully addressed many cases of infants who have sustained dangerously high levels of lead in their blood due to this condition.
Most of our cases are brought against the landlords who own the buildings where the lead paint existed. If the City of New York has not investigated the building, we conduct our own investigation with a private engineer.
It is also important that the child receive proper medical care and evaluation. We assist in every respect to make sure that injured children receive proper care and we aggressively pursue full damages for the past, present and future effects of their injuries.
Our legal team coordinates with medical personal as needed in order to obtain facts or evidence to strengthen your case. Having a New York personal injury attorney fighting by your side can help to carry some of the burden you face and allow you to concentrate on your child's needs.
