Lead Paint Poisoning

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | May 14, 2012 | 0 Comments

Despite the known dangers associated with lead paint, many children still suffer from lead paint poisoning every year. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that approximately 310,000 children have elevated levels of lead in their blood stream.

The majority of lead paint poisoning cases involve children who are under the age of five. Over time, lead paint can deteriorate, creating lead dust that can settle on items such as your child's toys. From here, it is easy for this dust to be ingested by your child. Over time, this can result in elevated levels of lead in the bloodstream that can jeopardize your child's health.

Common symptoms associated with lead poisoning include:

  • Vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Stomach aches
  • Learning disabilities
  • Kidney malfunction
  • Hyperactivity
  • Headaches
  • Mental retardation
  • Hearing loss

Landlords and property owners are responsible for providing safe premises for you and your family. This includes getting rid of any lead paint that may endanger the health of your children. Failure to do so may constitute negligence, and you may be entitled to receive compensation for your child's damages.
