Lead Poisoning

Lead is a bountiful mineral that was once used in gasoline and paints up until the 1960s. It was used in toys and house paint until the late 1970s, until the dangers of lead poisoning became more apparent.

Lead poisoning is less common now that lead has been removed from many of its traditional applications (paint, gasoline, pipes, and glass), but lead poisoning is still a threat to those who’re exposed to it.

Lead poisoning is a personal injury that can be fatal, and it’s your right to live, work, and thrive in an environment that is lead free.

The symptoms of lead poisoning include:

  • Abdominal pain/cramping
  • Anemia
  • Abnormal behaviors
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Constipation
  • Headaches
  • Slow or retarded mental development (in children)

If you believe that you’ve come in contact with lead, and are a victim of lead poisoning, you need to contact Jersey Personal Injury and speak with an experienced and compassionate New Jersey personal injury lawyer who can put the law on your side and fight for medical coverage, financial compensation, and removal of the dangerous object.

Lead poisoning isn’t just a momentary issue; it can have long term effects on your body and mind.

The complications of lead poisoning include:

  • Hearing problems
  • Behavioral problems (at work or in school)
  • Kidney damage
  • Reduced IQ
  • Slow body development/growth

Life and mental development are very important, and you deserve to have an abundance of both. Lead poisoning is serious and should be dealt with immediately. Contact a New Jersey lawyer who will take on your case and help you every step of the way.
