Suing for Personal Injury
If your child was clearly damaged by lead poisoning from exposure to lead in poorly maintained rental property (or in any situation caused by a specific person outside your family), you may be able to bring a lawsuit for personal injury. Whether your case will be taken on by an attorney will depend largely on how likely it is to succeed. This is determined by how clear the damage and the exposure are, as well as the specific laws in your state and how courts have decided similar cases.
Lawsuits for lead poisoning are brought to provide money to compensate for the damage suffered by children as well as to encourage property owners to be more vigilant about preventing lead poisoning.
