Lead Poison Questions

What is lead poisoning?

Lead poisoning is a medical condition that may be caused due to an over abundance of lead content in the body. Sometimes, it may be caused due to lead content in the paints that have been used in households. Individuals who may be affected or have lead poisoning symptoms due to the paint may have legal rights and be able to sue their landlords, homeowners, and or home manufacturers for damages. It is important to know the legal consequences of lead poisoning so that people know what steps to take if they may need to take legal actions or are at the risk of being sued themself. Given below are legal questions about lead poisoning that people may ask.

Can someone be sued for lead poisoning in a house that they used to own if they are on social security benefits?

Most of the times, people who do not have an income and survive on social security or retirement benefits, may be considered to be judgment proof. This means that their income may not be garnished for any case unless it is mixed with any other income that they may receive from other sources. Hence, it may be pointless to sue someone who is living on social security.

What is the statute of limitations for a lead poisoning case if the person is under 18?

The statute of limitations for a lead poisoning case may not come into effect till the person who has had lead poisoning turns 18 years of age. Once the person is 18, the statute of limitations comes into play and is 3 years from the day the individual turns 18.

What would be a landlord’s legal responsibilities towards the tenant if his/her tenant is found to have lead poisoning from the house?

According to the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act, the landlord may be liable towards the tenant if he/she gets lead poisoning from the house. He/she may have to get the lead removed from the house by getting a licensed contractor. The landlord may also have to pay for the injuries that the tenant may have acquired due to the lead poisoning. If the landlord fails to comply with the law about letting the tenant know of the lead, he/she may have to pay a fine of up to $10,000 for each violation.

What can an individual do if his/her son gets lead poisoning from the lead in the paint of the house?

An individual may sue his/her landlord if his/her child gets lead poisoning due to the lead content that was used to paint the house. The individual may sue the landlord for medical as well as punitive damages. If the landlord refuses to change the paint of the house, he/she may also sue the landlord for breach of lease and make him/her pay for the individual’s relocation.

It is important for you to know what your legal rights are if you have been infected by lead poisoning. It may not be easy for you to get all the information that you need on your own. You can always ask an Expert if you have any questions regarding lead poisoning.

  • Hello, I live in New Jersey and injured my shoulder on the

    Hello, I live in New Jersey and injured my shoulder on the job. I have a workerscomp lawyer but that's all he does. I'll try to keep it short. I was injured on 11/28/11. didn't get surgery till 11/26/12 I have been complaining of pain still to this day. the case settled & I was able to re-open my case because I proved with a MRI done of my shoulder which proved I wasn't lying and there's a 5mm tear on top of where a supposedly 7mm tear was fixed! It also showed some other damage " a small rounded area of sclerosis in the glenoid which could represent a bone island " that wasn't there before. The Insurance company sent me back to the treating Doctor who admitted and has it in his report that he forgot to do a follow-up with my neck and even said that I originally complained of neck pain and that it's related to my case. he performed a test of my head and neck and feels there may be some spine damage and suggests a plan of treatment and suggests for workercomp to get me a MRI of my neck. Because of this I have never been able to return to work as a Heavy Equipment Operator / Truck driver. So my question is do I have a malpractice case or what for loss income, Pain and suffering? anything? Thank you for your Time.
  • Location: Pennsylvania. Victim (church member) pulled over

    Location: Pennsylvania. Victim (church member) pulled over completely to the shoulder of the road and got out of his car. While out of the car, another vehicle ran off the road, into the victim's car, and totalled it. Since the victim was not in the car at the time of the collision, he thankfully did not sustain any inThe victim only had liability insurance, not collision. After more than 2 months, the insurance company of the person responsible for the accident informed the victim that the specific car that ran into the victim's car was not insured - that the owner had not registered his newly purchased car. They suggested that the victim personally go after the person who caused the accident. Til now (11 weeks) there has been no compensation at all for the damaged car, for arranging alternate transportation, etc. A laptop computer and stroller were damaged beyond repair as a result of the accident. Best way to get this settled, please?
  • 4 yrs ago I was coming out of my gated subdivision and making

    4 yrs ago I was coming out of my gated subdivision and making a right turn out into a busy***** I had a stop sign and bicyclist ran his because he was looking down, had iPod on and dark sunglasses. I saw him and abruptly stopped but he tried to slow down with his foot to brake and ended up at my front grill holding himself up. I had completely stopped before he passed in front of me. Joggers, walker and bicyclists do this all day everyday at this same crossway in front of my subdivision. He refused help, ambulance 911 etc. He said he was fine and just wanted to get to work because he was on his lunch break and exercising his leg because the previous yr he had a motorcycle accident. Long story short he decided then to call for what he says is medical insurance and proceeds to call 911 but doesn't want to go to hospital. The police take him home and several months later I get a lawsuit from an attorney in a personal injury firm that cranks out suits all day long. I find out the bicyclist has a history of 7 arrests including reckless driving, controlled substance etc. Never convicted and all thrown out of court. His father seems to know people. There have been a lot of bicyclists death around the city so he is after money. I was going maybe 5 miles and hour and abruptly stopped before her crossed going across. The sidewalk crosses really close to the driveway and is also very close to the highway traffic. He has made up this story that I hit him and threw him into the street. My attorney took his deposition 2 months ago and said he rambled like crazy and was say it was his wrist that was hurt. I have never been sued and I am very upset with all this. It has taken 4 yrs for the out of town attorney to travel here. They come off and on to crank out cases. They have asked me maybe 3 times to be deposed and I couldn't due to the fact that I was out of town. Next week I m being deposed and I am very upset that I am drug through this. I don't want to go to trial. Is that the next step after i am deposed and they try to run me over the coals and make me feel say something to make it look like it was my fault? They did not request a video just a court reporter
