Lead is an extremely toxic substance that can result in severe health issues in both children and adults. It can directly impact many parts of the body: kidneys, heart, intestines, and the nervous and reproductive systems. Toxic lead exposure can happen through contaminated water, food, air, soil, and certain consumer items. One of the greatest threats from lead exposure is to children from older homes with chipping lead paint. If you are living in a home that was built before 1978, lead paint might have been used and you and your family may be in danger.
Sickness, injury, or other conditions that result from dangerous lead exposure can be serious, whether the victim is an adult or child. Toxic lead exposure can happen anywhere; it can happen at home, work, or elsewhere. Our lawyers believe that toxic lead exposure should not occur anywhere at any time. We are committed to holding individuals, manufacturers and other businesses responsible for exposing someone to hazardous toxins.
