Can I bring a lawsuit to recover compensation for my child who has lead poisoning?

Can I bring a lawsuit to recover compensation for my child who has lead poisoning? On occasion, the source of lead contamination is an object that is brought into the home, such as a toy, piece of jewelry or materials used for arts and crafts. Federal law prohibits the use of lead in many of these products, but imported materials still contain significant amounts of lead. It may be possible to file a lawsuit against a product manufacturer if it is determined that your child’s injuries were related to the company’s product.

In the case of lead poisoning related to ingestion of paint used in a home or apartment, a lawsuit may be pursued against the landlord or management company for their negligent maintenance of the premises. Further, in some municipalities, there are laws in place which may be used to strengthen a case as code violation.

Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User

This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa, Avvo User
