If my child was lead poisoned at a young age and is now having trouble in school, can I still bring a case for them?

Yes. In Iowa, children who are injured have until they are 19 years old to bring claims for their injuries. It is not always a good idea to wait that long to bring a claim because witnesses may move away and important evidence may be destroyed. Additionally, parents of lead poisoned children also have claims that have a shorter statute of limitation. You should contact an attorney to discuss whether your child has a legal claim.
