The Dangers of Lead Paint Exposure

Lead paint poisoning is harmful for both adults and children, but it can have a detrimental effect of children. A child’s body can absorb lead far easier than an adult body, making children far more vulnerable to the risks of lead paint poisoning.

These risks include:

  • Slowed growth
  • Brain damage
  • Learning problems
  • Behavior issues
  • Headaches
  • Damage to the nervous system
  • Damage to the brain
  • Seizures
  • Hearing difficulties
  • Coma
  • Wrongful death

While lead poisoning is predominantly harmful to children, it can also have an effect on adults, such as:

  • Nervous disorders
  • Difficulties during pregnancy
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Digestive problems
  • Concentration and memory difficulties
  • Reproductive problems in both women and men
  • High blood pressure

Children Are Most at Risk

Children living in poorly maintained and old buildings in New York City are at the highest risk of being exposed to lead paint. The law requires landlords to remove lead paint from any buildings where young children reside.

However, landlords often fail to follow through and when the lead paint chips begin to fall off apartment walls, young children risk ingesting the chips and introducing the toxic chemical into their system.

The team at Dansker & Aspromonte have plenty of experience with child injury cases, including lead paint poisoning from New York apartments. Our firm works tirelessly to make sure you family gets both justice and compensation for the injuries your child has incurred.
