Recent Victory - $3,600,000 Lead Poisoning and Habitability case

Riley Law Group PC is pleased to announce that it has settled a lead poisoning and habitability case on behalf of 4 families for $3,600,000.00. The four families consisted of 10 children and 6 adults who lived in a 100 year old 40 unit apartment building on Alvarado St. north of Wilshire Blvd. in central Los Angeles.

Lead poisoning a serious issue in many California cities

We have all seen the news regarding the tainted water supply in Flint, Michigan. What seems so far away may be a problem in communities throughout California as well. A recent study of blood-lead levels in children by Reuters has shown that many cities across the state have seen a high number of lead poisoning cases affecting children, rivaling the numbers present in Flint.

Does your child have lead poisoning?

Many families living in Los Angeles reside in apartments or homes that were built prior to 1978, and are therefore presumed to have lead paint present. When you moved in, you should have received notice from your landlord about the potential dangers of the exposures to lead paint.

What every family should know about the dangers of lead poisoning

Lead poisoning should be a concern for everybody, especially families with young children. This is because lead poisoning can lead to long-term problems such as learning disorders that affect a child's ability to thrive. It can also affect every organ within the body, including your heart and lungs.

Children and lead paint: An unsafe mix

Many people in neighborhoods across Los Angeles live in homes or apartments that have lead paint. Lead paint was very common in the 1950s, and you should check for it if your home or apartment was built before 1978. Lead paint tests can be found in many hardware stores, and can give you a good idea if your residence is impacted.
