Lead poisoning currently affects many children and families in New York. It is a hazard hidden in many of the buildings and apartments of the metro area.
Even though lead paint was banned in the U.S. in 1978, many buildings and schools built before that year are still in operation throughout the city. Some children are unwittingly exposed to this hazard every day, as they play with toys containing this type of paint or live in places that may be contaminated.
If you believe that your child has been exposed to lead surfaces and paint particles, contact us as soon as possible. A lawyer at Gorayeb & Associates will assist you and begin investigating your case so that you can be compensated for the personal injuries you have suffered.
