Lead paint poisoning

Lead paint poisoning comes from deteriorating lead-based paint found in homes and apartments built before 1978 - where the paint is peeling, cracking, chipping or flaking off. It was in 1978 that the Federal government banned the use of this type of paint in homes. This is extremely dangerous if a child or toddler is crawling around the floor, picks up paint chips and puts them in his or her mouth.

Lead paint poisoning is especially dangerous in children because of the adverse effects exposure brings, which includes learning disabilities, behavior problems, hearing problems, abdominal pain, retardation, seizures, and sometimes death.

If you suspect your child mas lead paint poisoning, take him or her to a doctor immediately. Early diagnosis of this serious medical condition is important. Contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who has success in investigating lead paint poisoning cases.
