Although lead has been banned from being used in paint since the 1970’s, older homes may still contain elements that are toxic to young children, who are naturally attracted to the color and taste of paint chips. Talk to your landlord about the property, and find out if anyone else in the building has experienced a similar problem. Because the lead removal can be a difficult task to handle, some landlords neglect or put off their duties, thus endangering their tenants’ health and the lives of young children. If you feel your living environment is the cause of your child’s illness, talk to an experienced attorney about your options regarding legal action.
