Who can be held responsible for my child’s elevated blood-lead levels?

Who can be held responsible for my child’s elevated blood-lead levels? Laws regarding lead contamination vary greatly on the federal, state and city levels. Fortunately, the City of Chicago has enacted laws that are more favorable toward tenants and grant everyone the right to a safe living environment. While your landlord is not required to inspect your home for contaminants, the law requires property owners to give tenants information pertaining to the risk of lead exposure and how to locate potential problems. When repairs are required, tenants have the right to notify the property owner in writing about the issue and receive a resolution.

In the event the property owner does not take reasonable steps to provide a safe environment to tenants, the victims may bring a lawsuit against the owner for damages. Compensation sought can include the value of past and future medical bills, out of pocket expenses, loss of opportunity, emotional distress and pain and suffering.

★★★★★
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
