Information on Lead Poisoning
Lead poisoning is the introduction of lead into the body. Even small doses can be hazardous to your health; they can lead to psychological, mental, and physical health effects that can last many years, and can even be fatal.
Children are especially susceptible to lead poisoning, as their bodies and brains are still developing. Get help filing a claim against those responsible for your lead poisoning by contacting our expert personal injury legal team.
Who’s Liable For Most Lead Poisoning Cases?
Property owners, landlords, and those selling a home known to contain lead-based paint, are legally obligated to inform others about the health hazard.
If tenants are harmed because of lead poisoning, landlords and home sellers can and should be held liable.
Lead poisoning occurs most often in the home. For children, exposure often takes place when chips of lead-based paint come off walls and the paint chips are ingested.
For adults, exposure typically happens when lead particles are released into the air and inhaled.
The Dangerous Effects of Lead Poisoning
The effects of lead poisoning in adults are vast, and can include:
- Hearing issues
- Behavioral problems
- Kidney damage
- Reduced IQ
- Aggressive behavior
For children, they can experience developmental delays and mental issues in addition to all the other physical effects.
If you or your child have been harmed by exposure to lead poisoning, you should consider filing an injury claim against the party responsible.
