The New York Lead Poisoning Lawyers
at Kleinick Law have experience in dealing with brain injury cases due to lead poisoning. We represent plaintiffs throughout New York City (NYC) including Brooklyn, Bronx, and Manhattan.
The ingestion of paint containing lead can result in severe brain damage and learning disabilities. Lead paint poisoning effects mostly children who can suffer these injuries when exposed to lead dust and paint chips. Companies that produced lead based paint in the past include:
- Benjamin Moore
- Atlantic Richfield Company
- Sherwin Williams Company
These companies in such cases have banned together to defend suits against their industries. In response to lawsuits and other paint manufacturers have argued that, unlike tobacco companies they have never deceived anyone.
The industry says it funded the research into the dangers of lead paint and then, after the healthy hazard was proven, voluntarily pulled all lead paint off the market nearly 50 years ago. To date manufacturers have had significant success in avoiding liability, however, increased scrutiny may make it possible for you to recover.
Suits against landlords however have been much more successful. Landlords who do not maintain their properties by properly removing lead based paint, or fail to cover it with a new coat of lead-free paint or wallpaper can and have been held liable.
