Cleveland Lead Poisoning

The lead poisoning law firm Levy Konigsberg LLP is fighting to help Cleveland’s lead poisoned children get the financial resources they need to overcome the devastating effects of childhood lead poisoning. Cleveland, Ohio has some of the highest rates of childhood lead poisoning in the nation. At the height of the Flint Water Crisis, approximately 6% of Flint’s children under the age of six tested for high blood lead levels of 5 mcg/dL, or greater. By comparison, from 2009 to 2014, more than 17% of children in Cleveland under the age of six had high blood lead levels of 5 mcg/dL or greater. Furthermore, a lack of state funding in Ohio has resulted in lower screening rates for residents in Cleveland, meaning that 17% figure would likely be higher if more children were tested.

The Ohio legislature established the Lead Poisoning Prevention Fund in 2003 in an effort to reduce childhood lead exposure and pay blood-lead testing for children who were unable to afford it. However, the legislature neglected to put any money into the fund, and so the state continues to lack a tangible lead poisoning prevention program.

In 2006, the City of Cleveland attempted to take matters into its own hands with a voluntary lead safe certification program. The program allowed landlords to voluntarily have their homes inspected and certified lead free, ensuring families with young children safe places to live. However, no landlord in Cleveland has participated in the program, leaving Cleveland’s children at risk of lead exposure.

Since neither the state nor the city has a prevention program, it is up to families to advocate for them to ensure that their rental home is lead safe. Parents of young children should inform their landlord immediately if their home has cracking, peeling, or defective paint. Children should be tested for elevated blood-lead levels on a regular basis so that any exposure can be promptly responded to. Finally, families should seek an experienced lead poisoning attorney to get their child the financial resources he or she needs and deserves.

The lead poisoning attorneys at Levy Konigsberg LLP have decades of experience in lead poisoning litigation and have won over $100 million in verdicts and settlements on behalf of lead poisoned children. Levy Konigsberg has the resources and experience to take on landlords in Cleveland and ensure that your lead poisoned child gets the compensation he or she deserves.
