Lead Paint Poisoning
A Lead Paint Poisoning Case is Serious, and so is Our Aggressive Pursuit of Justice on Your Behalf
Lead paint poisoning is most commonly associated with young children, who may ingest particles of pain unintentionally, by putting toys or other objects in their mouth, or intentionally, not being aware of any risk. Once in the blood stream, the lead can cause severe impairment of brain function and learning disabilities; it is sometimes is evidenced by disruptive social behavior.
However, lead paint poisoning can also affect adults. Such cases may also be a result of exposure within the home, but may also be workplace-related. In adults, lead poisoning is associated with medical conditions, including increased blood pressure (and the resulting increased likelihood of stroke), kidney disease, and cancer.
The federal government has acknowledged these severe long-term health risks, and has passed the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act that mandates landlords control lead poisoning risk. If you have been injured in a circumstance where this obligation has been handled negligently on the part of a property owner or maintenance entity, you may be entitled to compensation.
