  • Working with Grant changed our life for the better. We don't have cockroaches any more. My children used to have a lot of respiratory issues, but since the apartment was renovated, my kids do not get sick. After the lawsuit, the landlord keeps our apartment in good shape. Mr. Riley was like a guardian angel to us.

  • When my son was diagnosed with lead poisoning, besides being crushed, my husband and I did not know what to do on the legal front. We knew we had been wronged and our son badly hurt, but we didn't know any lawyers who could handle our case. We researched every personal injury attorney in Southern California with a specialty in toxic poisoning and they all said the same thing, that the case would take more than a year, we would both have to give up our lives and work on the case almost full time, the most we could hope for would be $50,000.00 and too bad we didn't live on the East Coast. Then we got incredibly lucky and found Grant. He got us $2,500,000. The case took 6 months. He maneuvered every complicated hoop. He took a personal interest in our case and in our family. He was truly saddened by what happened and concerned for my son. He's smart, he's passionate about who and what he represents and he's relentless. I truly don't know what we would have done if we hadn't met Grant.

Dangers Of Unhealthy Housing

| Read Time: 2 minutes

Under California law, your landlord must make sure that the property that he or she rents to you is free from defects, infestations and other dangerous conditions. If you report an issue and your landlord fails to take any action toward resolving the issue, you do have rights available to you, but it is up to you to assert those rights. It might be difficult for you to take action against your landlord, but it is the only way to get the compensation that you deserve because of your landlord’s actions. At Riley Law Group, PC, attorney Grant K. Riley offers aggressive representation to individuals and families who have suffered injuries or illnesses due to a landlord who fails to honor his or her obligations to you. Grant has over 30 years of litigation experience, and will stand up for you against your landlord. Factors That May Mean You Have A Case Not every failure to repair or address problems may give rise to litigation against a slumlord. Grant will review your case to determine if you may be able to successfully obtain compensation, and then assist you with all aspects of your claim. He will make sure that your rights are protected at all times, including at trial, if needed. Some of the illnesses and injuries that may result from conditions that are uninhabitable include: Bites from insects, including cockroaches, bed bugs or spiders Illnesses connected from exposure to toxic mold Asthma from exposure to cockroach allergens Severe health problems for children who have been exposed to lead paint Lead poisoning in adults Burns due to gas leaks or faulty wiring Often, landlords will take no action to repair any defects until someone has been injured due to the unsafe conditions. If you have complained time and time again about something in need of repair and your landlord has done nothing to address the problem, talk to our lawyer. We will examine the issue in detail to discover if your landlord has failed to honor his or her obligations under California law. If you have suffered a serious injury because of these conditions, we can make sure that you are able to get the care you need, and then hold your landlord responsible for the damages connected to the incident. We Are Here To Help You And Your Family Do not be afraid to reach out to us. We are going to protect you through this process.

Are you aware of the dangers posed by lead poisoning?

| Read Time: 2 minutes

On behalf of Riley Law Group PC on Wednesday, October 17, 2018. Lead is dangerous. It does not take much of it to pose a serious health hazard. An amount equal to one grain of sugar or salt can cause permanent injury. Children are especially at risk because lead harms their developing brains. Consequences to health can be severe. Lead poisoning can cause permanent health problems and can even be fatal. Symptoms of lead poisoning in children are well known based on decades of research. They include loss of IQ, difficulty focusing and behavioral problems. Yet, because these symptoms are potentially from other sources, lead poisoning is often undiagnosed and not addressed. Lead poisoning most often occurs in old housing If you live in a structure that was built before 1978, there’s a high risk that the walls are covered with lead paint. If that old paint is chipping and flaking, beware. And even if some effort is made to remove the lead threat, if it isn’t done properly and by a certified company, the threat can remain. Children between the ages of 6 months to 2 years old are most at risk. They crawl on the floor, slide their hands over window sills and then put their hands in their mouth. So old paint chips and lead contaminated dust often find their way into a young child’s mouth. New laws In recent weeks, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill to further address the issue of lead poisoning in the state. The bill directs the California Department of Public Heath to raise awareness among health care providers, parents on Medi-Cal and other parents with children at high risk of lead poisoning about the threat of childhood lead poisoning and their right to have their children tested for lead. It is crucial that parents with younger children in older housing make sure their children are tested for lead poisoning on an annual basis up to age 2. The laws of Los Angeles and California put an obligation on landlords to remove any known lead hazards and to behave responsibly when handling a potential threat from lead based paint. Once tenants are educated about the health risks of lead hazards, they are in a better position to hold landlords accountable and to ensure their homes are safe.
