New Jersey Lead Poisoning Lawyers
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, lead poisoning is the leading environmental health hazard for young children and affects as many as 1.7 million children from the age of 5 and under. Deteriorating paint is one of the biggest concerns for small children since they may eat the paint chips. The loose paint particles can also fill a home or some other building with lead-filled dust, resulting in lead exposure for everyone in a family or workplace.
The effects of ingesting or breathing lead particles are devastating and unfortunately, the damage it causes can be irreversible. The higher the lead toxicity levels, the more extreme the damage. Because there are no immediate symptoms, someone may be harmfully exposed without even knowing it. Lead has been linked to a host of adult illnesses and child-related neurological problems, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disabilities/developmental delays, speech problems, low I.Q. and permanent brain damage.
The lead poisoning attorneys at O’Connor, Parson, Lane & Noble are committed to helping lead poisoning victims recover damages for the treatment of the health issues that arise from exposure to toxic lead paint. Poisoning can result in serious health problems, including missed work or school, significant medical bills and lifelong effects, particularly in the case of children. Whether we need to take your case to court or negotiate out of court settlements, our goal is to recover the funds you deserve for your economic and non-economic losses.
