By New York state law, owners of all commercial, residential and municipal buildings with paint on interior or exterior surfaces are required to remove the paint, in order to protect against lead poisoning. Young children, in particular, are vulnerable. Many old multi-family residential units in the city still include interior apartments with lead paint, and lead poisoning continues to affect the health of residents.
If you or your child has been diagnosed with mental or physical disease caused by lead poisoning due to lead paint in your living or work environment in the New York City metro area, talk to a personal injury trial lawyer at Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C. We are recognized as one of the city's leading names in personal injury litigation. With offices on Wall Street, we are — and always have been — a New York City law firm, with in-depth understanding of the legal issues involved in premises liability on the part of property owners in the five boroughs.
Liability on the Part of the City
The city is expected to inspect buildings to ensure they are safe for residential habitation and commercial use. If your residential property missed an inspection, or the city failed to enforce the inspection requirements, your municipal entity may share some level of municipal liability for damages. We offer a free consultation to evaluate your case and explain your legal option. If we determine that a government entity may, indeed, share some level of liability, you have only 90 days from the date of your diagnosis to file an intent to claim notice.
