Toronto Lead Paint Poisoning Lawyers
The use of lead paint for residential purposes was outlawed in 1978 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. This was a huge step to prevent lead poisoning, but unfortunately, many of the houses and buildings built before 1978 still contain lead paint, and many have not been corrected. Because so many buildings still contain this paint, usually low-income apartments and houses, families are still routinely poisoned by their own homes.
If you or a loved one has been poisoned by lead paint due to the negligence or recklessness of a building’s owner or previous owner, you may be entitled to compensation, and our qualified team of premises liability lawyers are here to help. Here at Mazin & Associates, PC, we understand how scary and marginalizing it is to be poisoned by lead paint, and we are passionate about providing compassionate and effective legal care for our clients and ensuring they obtain the full compensation they deserve.
