Maryland Lead Paint Poisoning Lawyers

If your child has been diagnosed with
lead poisoning, it is important to speak to
our qualified Baltimore lead paint lawyers.

Rental houses throughout Baltimore City and the state of Maryland which were built before the late 1970s may contain toxic lead paint. If the homes or apartments are not properly maintained, the paint could flake off of the walls, potentially causing young children to develop lead poisoning.

Even a small exposure to lead paint could result in elevated levels of lead in the blood and devastating consequences for young children in Maryland, as lead poisoning could leave the child with permament brain damage, mental retardation or other injuries.

If your child or a family member has been diagnosed with elevated lead levels after living at a rental property during their formative years, contact our Maryland lead paint lawyers for a free consultation and claim evaluation.

Baltimore City Lead Paint Lawsuits

The highest number of children diagnosed with lead poisoning in Maryland are found in Baltimore City, where approximately 3.5% of all children tested in 2007 had elevated blood lead levels. Baltimore City lead poisoning is a large problem because there are a number of older rental properties which are not properly maintained.

Lead poisoning in Baltimore City and throughout
Maryland could have been caused by the
negligence of a landlord or property owner.

If a landlord negligently fails to prevent toxic lead paint from pealing off the walls of their property, they may be held liable for damages caused when young children eat, suck on or inhale lead paint chips.

Lead poisoning could result in:

  • Brain Injury
  • Damage to the Nervous System
  • Seizures or Convulsions
  • Decreased Growth Rate
  • Mental Retardation
  • Coma
  • Death
