Our lead poisoning lawyers have filed more cases for children with elevated blood lead levels than any other law firm in Michigan. In the past, most lawsuits were filed against past and present landlords due to paint and dust hazards in rental homes. Now, new cases are being filed for children exposed to tainted water containing lead in the Flint Water Crisis.
Medical exams and health department records show an increase in the blood lead levels of children in the City of Flint since the change from the Detroit water source. Doctors and medical experts believe that the tainted water is responsible for the higher lead levels in Flint children. The timeline of the change in the water source establishes that higher lead levels are most likely the result of this bad water.
The effects of lead poisoning on a child can be devastating and cause permanent and irreversible damage to the brain and central nervous system. Problems associated with child lead poisoning include learning disabilities, behavioral problems (like ADHD), and decreased IQ. These problems are serious and affect a child's ability to succeed in school and later on in the work force.
If your child was diagnosed with high levels of lead and consumed tainted Flint water, you should contact our experienced attorneys now at (800) 606-1717 to start your case. Several lawsuits have been filed outside of the class action on behalf of children with high levels of lead. These cases seek compensation for the harm caused by the bad Flint water and are expected to result in substantial settlements.
We charge no fees unless there is a settlement and we pay all case costs. There are strict time deadlines for filing Flint lead poisoning lawsuits so it is important that you call our law office immediately.
