Lead Poisoning Risk Factors

Lead paint has been used since ancient times for its numerous beneficial properties. It resists moisture and dries faster than normal paint, and produces a crisp, clean pigment. Unfortunately, however, lead exposure is extremely toxic to humans, and may result in serious injuries or death.

If you or a loved one has suffered from lead paint poisoning, you may be eligible to claim damages from the negligent parties. Contact Cincinnati lead poisoning attorney at Stepleton Dugan, LLC today at 513-321-7733 to discuss your legal options.

Areas Where Lead Paint May Be Found

There are numerous areas where lead poisoning can occur. The consequences of lead poisoning can be extremely harmful, especially for children and the elderly, and may include developmental problems, emotional disturbances, organ failure, and even death. Some of the circumstances in which lead poisoning can occur include:

  • Children’s toys, especially those which are manufactured in countries with less strict safety standards, such as China or India
  • Certain industrial applications, in which it may actually be legal to use lead paint
  • Homes built before the 1970s, which typically have lead based paint on the walls and exterior
  • Lead-based paint dust resulting from wall paint or other sources, which can easily be inhaled

All of these sources of lead paint can be extremely hazardous, and if you believe you may have been exposed to such environments, you should immediately contact both a doctor and an experienced Cincinnati lead paint poisoning lawyer.
