Nashville Lead Paint Exposure Lawyers
Although lead-based paint has been banned across the United States for over 30 years, there are a number of older homes and commercial buildings that still have lead-based paint inside and outside. Unfortunately, lead-based paint can be very dangerous for tenants or people moving into a house, especially if the property owner fails to warn others of the potential danger. Lead paint can be extremely dangerous and even deadly when ingested or inhaled. It is especially dangerous for children because their brains are still maturing and therefore more susceptible to the damaging effects of lead.
If you or your loved one has been sickened as a result of exposure to lead paint, it may be appropriate to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit against the owner who failed to warn of the danger. For committed and capable legal counsel when you have been exposed to lead paint, contact the Nashville premises liability lawyers of Pohl & Berk, LLP, at 615-277-2765.
Health Effects of Lead Paint Poisoning
Lead paint is dangerous because as time goes on, it begins to chip and flake off walls. This process releases microscopic lead particles into the air. The inhalation of these particles can lead to significant adverse health effects, including the following:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Headaches and abdominal pain
- Neurological complications and memory loss
- Reproductive system problems
If you or a loved one is experiencing any of the above symptoms after spending considerable time in an older building, make sure to seek medical care as soon as possible.
