The Maryland high court granted certiorari in an unreported Court of Special Appeals opinion that has great ramifications for Maryland accident lawyers and their clients.
Facts of Dackman v. Robinson
This is a lead paint case. The plaintiff alleged a brain injury as a result of lead paint exposure at the defendant’s property. At the close of discovery, Dackman filed a motion for summary judgment claiming there was no dispute of material fact because the plaintiff did not adequately meet his burden of establishing that his elevated blood lead levels were from exposure at the defendant’s property.
