Lead is a very toxic substance that can cause major health problems in adults and children. According to the CDC, the lead found in paint is the most common cause of lead poisoning in children. Homes built before 1978 may have paint that contains lead and children who ingest chips of paint with lead in them may suffer lead poisoning. Objects, such as toy jewelry and many toys made in China may also contain unsafe levels of lead and pose a very serious health risk to children. If you are a loved one is experiencing lead poisoning, you may need to contact a lead poisoning injury lawyer,
There are two ways that lead poisoning injuries can occur, through acute exposure and through chronic, long term exposure.
- Chronic exposure is long-term exposure to lead and can cause the following:
– Abdominal pain
– Short-term memory or concentration loss
– Slowed growth in children
– Behavior and learning problems in children
– Damage to the brain and nervous system in children
– Hearing issues
– Reproductive problems
- Acute Exposure which is an intense exposure in a short period of time can produce issues with the victim’s neuromuscular and nervous system. Victims who survive acute poisoning may then go on to experience the same symptoms of victims of chronic poisoning. Victims of acute lead poisoning may experience the following:
– Vomiting and diarrhea
– Muscle weakness
– High blood pressure
– Muscle and joint pain
– Limb numbness and tingling
– Reduced appetite and weight loss
If you are experiencing these symptoms, you may need to speak to an experienced lead injury lawyer to pursue the maximum compensation for you or your loved one’s injuries. Even though the federal government placed a ban on lead paint in homes, there are many layers of paint that still remain in homes constructed before 1978. If you or your child is suffering from lead poisoning, you may be entitled to compensation from a landlord or a manufacturer. You may have a claim against those who are responsible for your injuries and suffering.
