Lead poisoning causes devastating and life altering harm to young children. When a child is lead poisoned at a young age, that child’s potential for success is taken from them. A lead poisoned child who once had a bright and open future full of possibility will often struggle in school and life just to be average. That is why it is important to get your child the resources he or she needs to cope with the lifelong problems that result from childhood lead exposure.
The experienced lead poisoning attorneys at Levy Konigsberg LLP (“LK”) can help you and your child get the financial resources you deserve. As national leaders in lead poisoning litigation, the passionate lawyers at the LK have taken on landlords, management companies, public housing authorities, government agencies, and others who failed to take the common sense steps necessary to prevent a young child from being harmed from lead. They understand the painful and often isolating struggle a child goes through in life after being lead poisoned, and fight hard to ensure that every child receives the financial resources needed to overcome this struggle.
A lead poisoning lawsuit is more complicated than a typical premises liability case. Lead interrupts the growth and development of a child’s brain, but the effects of lead poisoning are often not seen until years after the initial exposure and manifest in ways that are not readily apparent to someone who was unaware of the initial exposure. Symptoms of lead poisoning are similar to that of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (“ADHD”) and other learning disabilities. However, a child may exhibit strengths in certain subjects while struggling in others, leading parents and teachers to think the child is simply not trying.
The lead poisoning attorneys at LK have the experience needed to tell the difference, and the knowledge and resources to communicate these differences to a jury. With over 25 years of experience fighting on behalf of children, our attorneys have won over $100 million in verdicts and settlements and know what it takes to build a winning lead poisoning case.
