Lead poisoning is usually caused by eating lead paint chips; small children sometimes try this when lead paint peels. Peeling paint can also fill a home or some other building with lead-filled dust, resulting in lead exposure for everyone in a family or workplace. New York City has been the site of numerous lead poisoning incidents, in apartments, work places, and beyond.

Children are at the highest risk for lead poisoning and sadly, the damage it causes is usually irreversible. The higher the lead toxicity levels, the more profound the damage. If lead exposure has injured someone in your family, schedule a free consultation now with an experienced Bronx lead poisoning attorney at the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lavin.

Lead’s effects are devastating. With no immediate symptoms, someone may be dangerously exposed without knowing it. Lead poisoning leads to brain damage, cardiovascular damage, and musculoskeletal, vision, kidney, and reproductive problems. Developmental and behavioral disorders can also occur in children.


For three decades, our Bronx personal injury attorneys have successfully defended the families of lead toxicity victims, so we understand the concerns and challenges our clients face. A good Bronx lead poisoning attorney will assess the details of your case and help determine your family’s best long term interests. We will investigate the case, consult medical authorities, and identify the parties responsible for the contamination and the subsequent health risk.

Landlords in New York may be held liable if lead is present in apartments or another rental property. If lead hasn’t been properly removed, the landlord or the contractor hired to remove the lead may be found at fault and liable. Manufacturers of products containing lead may also hold some liability if someone suffers lead poisoning and signs of toxicity.

When a negotiated settlement isn’t possible, we will take your case before a jury and bring to bear our considerable experience and resources. Our 30-year record of success speaks for itself.
