In 1978 the Consumer Product Safety Commission disallowed the use of lead paint in residential and commercial buildings due to its health hazards. While this did ensure new buildings were not coated in lead paint, many that were constructed prior to 1978 contain the toxic substance, continuing to put tenants and visitors in danger as lead paint can have serious health implications. Addressing the problem of lead paint is a property owners’ responsibility; thus, when the issue is not addressed and causes a visitor or tenant to be harmed, the property owner may be financially liable.
If you or someone close to you has suffered any injury from lead paint on someone’s property, the property owner may be liable, allowing you to file a claim against them.
