What are common symptoms of lead paint poisoning?

The majority of lead poisoning victims are children, and even more specifically, children under 6 years old. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the New York Department of Health, a child is considered to have lead poisoning if he or she has 10 micrograms per deciliter of lead in his or her bloodstream. It can be very difficult, if not impossible, to detect lead poisoning without medical assistance. However, there are some warning signs that could indicate lead poisoning in the body. These signs include:

  • Abnormal weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Constipation
  • Problems sleeping
  • Reduced ability to focus or pay attention
  • Persistent fatigue, tiredness, or hyperactivity
  • Irritability

What types of lead paint poisoning cases does attorney Reiter handle?

Exposure to toxic lead paint is incredibility damaging, especially in young children. No amount of lead in the body is a safe amount. When a child is exposed to even just a tiny amount of lead-based paint, it can lead to a variety of serious health effects. Even more troubling, exposure to toxic lead paint can cause irreversible damage that may not appear until many years later. Children are the most vulnerable to lead poisoning and may suffer from the following serious or grave conditions:

  • Neurological damage
  • Irreversible brain damage
  • Impaired mental functioning or development
  • Decreased IQ or intelligence
  • Learning disabilities
  • Short-term memory loss
  • Kidney failure
  • Growth retardation
  • Behavioral problems
  • Reduced attention span
  • Seizures
  • Coma
  • Death

We handle all of these cases and can help your family take legal action against the property owner or whoever was responsible for your lead paint poisoning injury. If necessary, we can even help you file a lead paint poisoning lawsuit or wrongful death lawsuit to resolve your case.
