  • Lead Poisoning Class Action Lawsuit Against Kennedy Kreiger Institute

    [ September 22, 2011 | Andrea MacIver | Posted in Chicago, Chicago Personal Injury Attorney, Personal Injury, Premises Liability, Wrongful Death ]

    On September 15, 2011, a class action lawsuit was filed against Baltimore’s Kennedy Krieger Institute.  According to ABC News, the lawsuit alleges that the Institute exposed poor black children to dangerous levels of lead hazards during a 1990 housing study that sought to find cost-effective manners to reduce the level of lead in children’s blood.  The study placed over 100 families in housing where various lead-reducing treatment procedures were being tested.  These families remained in these houses for two years and were monitored  by researchers at the Kennedy Krieger Institute during that time.

    According to the Center on Disease Control,  “[a]pproximately 250,000 U.S. children aged 1-5 years have blood lead levels greater than 10 micrograms of lead per deciliter of blood, the level at which CDC recommends public health actions be initiated.  Lead poisoning can affect nearly every system in the body.  Because lead poisoning often occurs with no obvious symptoms, it frequently goes unrecognized.” 

    If you or a loved one has been exposed to lead hazards, please contact The Deratany Firm for a free consultation.
