ST. LOUIS – Two siblings allege they were injured by exposure to lead paint as children while residing in rental properties in St. Louis.
Trevion Boles and Erin Quinn filed a complaint on April 11 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Sterling Turner, estate of Sterling Turner, et al. alleging negligence and breach of the implied warranty of habitability.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs are siblings and resided at three rental properties with their mother and other relatives in the 1990s that were managed by the defendants. They allege they were exposed to paint, powder and dust containing lead and lead pigments at the defendants' properties and contracted lead poisoning.
The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly negligently allowed the continued existence and deterioration of paint containing lead pigments in the rented properties and failed to promptly abate the lead hazard after notice.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment in their favor in an amount of more than $25,000, with interest, costs and all other relief that are appropriate. They are represented by Patrick R. Dowd, Eric D. Holland and R. Seth Crompton of Holland Law Firm in St. Louis and Alan J. Mensh of Ashcraft & Gerel LLP in Baltimore.
