Unfortunately, children are usually the victims of lead poisoning. Their bodies absorb lead more easily than adult bodies. Lead poisoning is affecting an estimated 890,000 preschoolers.
High levels of lead may cause brain damage, developmental disabilities, nervous system injuries, growth retardation and behavioral problems. Higher levels can result in a coma or even death.
The most common exposure to lead is from paint. If a building was constructed before 1978, it is possible that lead paint was used.
If you suspect you or your child is the victim of lead paint poisoning, you or your child may be entitled to compensation. Adam Studnicki will be happy to help you.
