Battle Creek Lead Poisoning Lawsuit Filed By Michigan Child Injury Attorneys

Our Michigan child injury lawyers recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of two siblings who are now 8 and 9 years old.  The children were lead poisoned in 2006.  The children had lead levels that were more than twice what the CDC considers lead poisoning.  The family was renting a home in Battle Creek, Michigan from the defendant at the time of the poisoning.

The Calhoun County Health Department conducted a lead risk assessment and found lead hazards on the interior and exterior of the rental. The plaintiffs have cognitive deficits and brain damage as a result of their lead poisoning.  No date has been set for a jury trial in this matter.

A recent analysis done by reports alarming child poisoning statistics that parents should be aware of. According to

  • In 2009, 109 children (ages 14 and under) died from unintentional poisoning.
  • Each year since 2001 approximately 78,000 non-fatal poisoned children were treated in the emergency departments.
  • In 2010 nearly 2.4 million human exposure cases were received by Poison Control Centers. Of those 2.4 million cases, children ages 3 and younger made up 40% of the incidences and children ages 5 and younger made up more than half of those cases.
  • 90% of poison exposures in children occur in the home
