Lead Paint Attorney in Baltimore

Has your child suffered as a result of lead poisoning? If you are currently renting an apartment or home and paint that contained lead was ingested or inhaled by your child, you may have a case in court. Even a small exposure to toxic lead can poison a child and can lead to disastrous consequences. Inhaling, sucking on, or eating lead paint chips can cause:

  • Brain injuries

  • Nervous system damage

  • Seizures/convulsions

  • Slowed physical growth

  • Hearing problems

  • Death

Many homes built before 1978 still have lead; often it has been painted over. Most children diagnosed with lead poisoning typically received the illness from thier home, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Those children are often entitled to financial compensation for their suffering.
