Thimerosal or Mercury Poisoning
A Child Poisoned by Mercury Deserves Rigorous Legal Representation
Unlike exposure due to industrial waste or processing, mercury poisoning commonly has its origins in medicine. For a period of years in the early 1990s, the preservative thimerosal was a component of pediatric vaccines.
When it came to light that thimerosal contained mercury, its use was phased out; cases coming to light now relate back to individuals who were given certain vaccinations during that previous era.
Like poisoning resulting from other heavy metals in the blood stream, such as lead poisoning, mercury is circulated through the body and damages brain tissue, affecting mental function. Symptoms may include:
- Brain inflammation and resulting developmental delays
- Damage to neurological function
- Symptoms associated with autism.
