New Jersey Lead Poisoning

The lead poisoning law firm of Levy Konigsberg LLP is taking on landlords in New Jersey who fail to maintain lead safe housing for families with young children. A lead safe home is one that is free of defective, peeling, or cracking lead-based paint. When a home is not lead safe, tenants are at risk of lead poisoning. Children under the age of seven are especially vulnerable because when lead-based paint deteriorates chips and dust from the paint collect on the floor where young children crawl and play.

Although childhood lead poisoning has been in the news in recent month primarily because of the Flint Water Crisis, New Jersey actually has eleven cities with a higher proportion of children with elevated blood-lead levels than Flint. However, unlike the tragedy in Flint, which was caused by professional missteps in the transition from one water source to another, the vast majority of lead poisoning cases in New Jersey come from cracking, peeling, and defective lead-based paint in older homes that are poorly maintained by neglectful and irresponsible landlords.

Lead-based paint was banned for use in homes throughout the United States in 1978. New Jersey law makes it the landlord’s responsibility to ensure that a home is safe and habitable for tenants. Landlords who own multiple dwelling homes built before 1978 must respond promptly to tenant complaints of cracking, peeling, or deteriorating paint. When such a hazard is found, landlords must pay to have that deteriorated paint repaired, either removing all the old layers of lead-based paint or applying a fresh coat of new paint over the deteriorated layers. When landlords fail in their duty and a tenant gets injured, they are liable for the harm caused by their inaction.
