No you cannot as long as they provided a lead paint information and disclosure-- any building built before1978 may have it. Its a requirement to inform.... But if you lease an apartment. In an old building it can have lead paint. Use your noggin. Why don't you buy a house?

Also the landlord has a form you sign when he tells you that there is lead paint. If you refuse to sign it your on your own. Stop looking to sue people and get a life!

Yes. A tenant absolutely can sue a landlord for not abating lead paint in a premise wherein a child (up to and including 20 years old) is being exposed and poisoned by lead paint. There are attorneys in Oneida County that handle lead paint poisoning in children.

those lawyers are parasites, if I were the judge and they brought the case in my court I would have the children removed from the parents care for endangering them...

....and the court will absolutley refer your case to Social Services to investigate what course of action you have personally taken to ensure said childs' health and safety. One word of caution, calling a lawyer does not count as a preventative measure in ensuring any person's safety. Additionally, if it can be proven you had previous knowledge of lead presence, and knowingly placed said child in harm's way? Best keep your fat welfare azz shut, capiche? Tell the kids to quit eating the paint ships and you'll be fine.

If you think your home has high levels of lead:
• Make sure your children eat healthy, low-fat foods
high in iron, calcium, and vitamin C.
• Get your children tested for lead, even if they
seem healthy.

Regularly Eat Healthy Foods
http://www.epa.gov/opptintr/lead/pubs/nutriti...

Many of the foods listed in this brochure can be bought with food vouchers from the WIC program.

To find out more about WIC, call your child’s pediatrician or visit www.fns.usda.gov/wic

Children with empty stomachs absorb more lead than children with full stomachs.

Provide your child with four to six small meals
during the day. The following nutrients can help protect your child from lead poisoning:

Iron-Rich Foods
Normal levels of iron work to protect the body
from the harmful effects of lead. Good sources
of dietary iron include:
Lean red meats, fish, and chicken
Iron-fortified cereals
Dried fruits (raisins, prunes)

Calcium-Rich Foods
Calcium reduces lead absorption and also helps make teeth and bones strong.

Good sources of dietary calcium include:
Milk
Yogurt
Cheese
Green leafy vegetables (spinach,
kale, collard greens)

Vitamin C-Rich Foods
Vitamin C and iron-rich foods work together
to reduce lead absorption.

Good sources of vitamin C include:
Oranges, orange juice Grapefruits, grapefruit juice
Tomatoes, tomato juice Green peppers

YES !!!! You can. You can also sit back and let your kid eat paint chips off the outside of your house because you are a shitty mother to a behavioral child and then you can try to sue your landlord for your poor parenting skills. Just ask Mary Kay Vatalaro.

Of course, we don't really know the lead status of the children of working parents because they don't get routinely tested. Only those who recieve assistance are routinely tested.

About Lead
http://www.hud.gov/offices/lead/healthyhomes/...

Lead is a highly toxic metal that may cause a range of health problems, especially in young children. When lead is absorbed into the body, it can cause damage to the brain and other vital organs, like the kidneys, nerves and blood.

Lead may also cause behavioral problems, learning disabilities, seizures and in extreme cases, death. Some symptoms of lead poisoning may include headaches, stomachaches, nausea, tiredness and irritability. Children who are lead poisoned may show no symptoms.

Both inside and outside the home, deteriorated lead-paint mixes with household dust and soil and becomes tracked in. Children may become lead poisoned by:

Putting their hands or other lead-contaminated objects into their mouths, Eating paint chips found in homes with peeling or flaking lead-based paint, or Playing in lead-contaminated soil.

Take a moment to look at the brochure "Protect Your Family from Lead in Your Home" for additional information (available in English, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Somali and Arabic).

How do children get lead poisoning?
http://www.epa.gov/reg3wcmd/lp-faqhealth.htm

A: Children can swallow lead dust or soil that contains lead from paint by putting their hands or toys in their mouth.

Lead makes things taste sweet, so children and pets are attracted to the taste of lead paint chips and especially to lead dust.

It only takes lead dust equal to two grains of sugar a day on a child's fingertip transferred to the mouth, for perhaps a month, to cause that child's nerve velocity to decrease, making the child slower both physically and mentally.

The only way to know for sure if your child has lead poisoning is with a simple blood test. Your doctor can perform the test and explain the results.

Ordinary dust and dirt may contain lead.

Children can swallow lead or breathe lead
contaminated dust if they play in dust or dirt
and then put their fingers or toys in their mouths,
or if they eat without washing their hands first.

Small children may get lead poisoning by licking, chewing, or eating lead paint on toys, jewelry, or woodwork such as windowsills.

The most common sources of lead are lead-based paint and lead in dust or soil. Peeling or chipped paint is easily crushed into dust in the home or into the soil around the house. Older, industrial buildings may have been painted with lead-based paint. When these buildings are remodeled, dust containing dangerous levels of lead can contaminate the air and soil. Houses built before 1978 probably have some amount of lead-based paint, and homes built prior to 1950 often have the highest level of lead-based paint.

Lead paint can be found on some toys, too. In 2007, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) found high lead content in many children’s toys and jewelry made in other countries. For a complete list of recalled products, see the CPSC Web site at www.cpsc.gov .
