Injury Law Firm Releases New Informational Graphic Warning that Lead Poisoning is Still a Serious Risk in the United States
Date:8/9/2013

(PRWEB) August 09, 2013

Lead was once a common ingredient in paint and it is still used in certain products and by certain industries. People may be exposing themselves to this toxic material without even knowing it. For example, one study has shown that up thirty-eight million houses still have this type of paint on their walls (i). On July 7, 2013, the City of San Francisco posted a press release detailing an ongoing lead paint lawsuit between ten California cities and five paint manufacturers, including Sherwin-Williams. The suit alleges that these companies engaged in “aggressive marketing of lead paint, which they knew was highly toxic to young children.” It also alleges that in just one year 10,875 children in the ten cities suffered this kind of poisoning. A San Francisco official stated, “Every day that goes by without cleaning up lead paint is another day when a child may be needlessly poisoned” (ii). To learn more about California lead paint litigation read this essay from Roger Willams University Law Review.

Lead can also be found in surprising places. Hobbies like fishing, shooting, pottery, and stock car racing all use products that contain this material. Lead dust is created every time a gun discharges and substantial amounts of this dust can accumulate at gun ranges. This past February twenty-four construction workers learned this the hard way after performing work at a gun range. According to The Seattle Times, tests from the workers should high concentrations of the metal in their blood and the workers alleged that they suffered side effects like fatigue, headaches, and tremors (ii). People have experienced similar injuries should talk to a lawyer about their legal options.

Attorney Paul d’Oliveira stated, “Lead poisoning has been a serious concern throughout New England because old homes can create paint chips and dust as they age, exposing children to this toxic material. People should know that whoever they rent or buy a house from has a duty to disclose these hazards. Our law firm has helped clients whose children have suffered lead poisoning get hundreds of thousands of dollars for their injuries. Our staff is ready to talk to you about your rights.”
