Baltimore Lead Poisoning

Levy Konigsberg, LLP, a nationally recognized lead poisoning law firm with thirty years experience representing children that have been lead poisoned, is fighting for Baltimore’s lead poisoned children to get the financial assistance and resources necessary to navigate the intense and drastic effects of lead poisoning.

The State of Maryland’s testing discovered more than 65,000 children in Baltimore had dangerously high blood-lead levels between 1993 and 2013. Baltimore has nearly three times the national rate of lead poisoning among children. Sadly, just a handful of neighborhoods, the poorest and most populated by minorities, are responsible for virtually all of the city’s lead poisoning cases over the last five years.

Ironically, Baltimore was originally on the front lines of creating legislation to limit lead exposure for children. In 1949, the Maryland legislature banned the use of lead paint in toys. Unfortunately, the law was overturned after significant pressure from the lead industry.

Over the last twenty years, Maryland has passed laws requiring landlords to cover or remove lead-based paint that is peeling, chipping or flaking. An intricate scheme is supposed to keep track of all rental homes old enough to have lead paint, and the homes are required to pass an inspection. The laws often fail Baltimore’s children, however, because the law is self-enforced. The state requires landlords to have their properties inspected for lead paint hazards, but rarely checks. A state or city worker typically visits a rental unit only after a routine medical test finds a child has been poisoned, or if someone complains. And even then, cases fall through the cracks.

The lawyers at Levy Konigsberg have decades of experience in lead poisoning litigation and have recovered in excess of $100 million on behalf of lead poisoned children. If your child has been lead-poisoned you need a firm with the skill, resources and dedication to stand-up and fight for you. Levy Konigsberg has won a long list of multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of children victimized by lead poisoning. The firm has won verdicts against landlords and property management companies and against government defendants as well as private landowners.

In helping children with lead poisoning in Baltimore, the attorneys at Levy Koniigsberg bring with them a national reputation, including taking the lead role in representing more than 1000 lead-poisoned children in Flint, Michigan.
