Bronx Lead Poisoning Lawyer

Home to roughly 1.5 million people, the Bronx is famous for landmarks such as Yankee Stadium and the Bronx Zoo. Of all New York City boroughs, the Bronx ranks fourth in both size and population, and is the only borough that is situated primarily on the U.S. mainland.

The Bronx is also one of New York state’s most diverse areas, both culturally and economically. Redevelopment, beginning in the 1980s, has helped boost economic activity. Though the Bronx is one of the most densely-populated areas in the U.S., it also contains considerable green space, as one quarter of its land is parkland.

All of those factors have helped make the Bronx a desirable living area. Yet residents still confront challenges — and lead poisoning is one of the most serious.
In January, 2018, a Bronx girl was awarded $57 million in damages as compensation for suffering life-threatening levels of lead poisoning. In 2017, it was discovered that the water in one Bronx public school had lead levels sixteen times higher than that seen in Flint, Michigan during that city’s lead crisis.

If you live in the Bronx, and your family is suffering from lead poisoning as the result of someone else’s negligence, it’s vitally important that you speak to an experienced lead poisoning attorney today.
Why Lead Poisoning is So Dangerous

Ingestion of lead can lead to permanent brain damage or even death in the most serious cases. That’s because lead is a potent neurotoxin that causes great systemic harm to human bodies. Even a relatively small amount of lead can lead to lowered IQ, developmental delays, behavioral problems and organ damage.

Children are particularly vulnerable to the dangers of lead — one exposure to lead paint chips or the dust fumes from lead paint can result in irreversible brain damage. Because the New York area has such a high percentage of older homes (70-percent of the city’s homes were built before the 1950s, when lead-based paint was still the norm), environmental risks are much higher.
There is no safe level of lead in the blood. Despite decades-long work to remediate lead-contaminated areas, the CDC estimates that there are still four million children currently living in homes where lead is present. Roughly 535,000 of these children are suffering from lead contamination.

Historically, the Bronx has been one of the areas most affected by lead contamination in both New York state and the greater United States. Because of this, parents of children in the Bronx should remain vigilant when protecting their families against the serious risks posed by lead.Finding an experienced attorney

He developed the overall big picture strategy of how to win the case while keeping his attention focused on the details, as well. A truly superior lawyer who I would recommend anytime!


    Mr. Frankel is knowledgeable, professional, down to earth, and easy to speak to. His team is very accessible and was wonderful to work with.

Nothing was too big or too small for him and they made a difficult ordeal much easier to get through. I highly recommend the Frankel Law Firm.


    I went to Michael Frankel, after consultation with other high profile lawyers. All of them refused to take my case, claiming that I could not win.
