A Buffalo landlord’s insurance company has agreed to pay $225,000 to the guardian of a 5 year old boy. The child suffered lead poisoning from deteriorated lead-based paint at a Wilkes Avenue apartment where the child lived as a toddler. The young boy’s high lead levels required several hospitalizations for chelation treatment. The settlement funds have been put into a structured settlement trust account for the boy. These funds will provide him with a guaranteed lifelong income of $775,000. That income will help with expected academic and functional disabilities he will face due to the severe lead poisoning. The attorneys at Lipsitz & Ponterio were happy to serve this child and achieve this settlement on his behalf.
