Lawsuit filed against Chevy Chase company that targeted victims of lead poisoning

A Chevy Chase company that made millions of dollars from victims of lead poisoning through deceptive practices is the defendant in a lawsuit filed by state Attorney General Brian Frosh.

Access Funding made deals with people poisoned by lead paint in their homes who were awarded “structured” settlements, which are paid in small increments over decades, ensuring that plaintiffs do not spend their money all at once.

The company obtained rights to structured-settlement payments worth nearly $18 million from 100 Maryland residents between 2013 and 2015. [Baltimore Sun]
