Milwaukee Lead Paint Poisoning Lawyers

Because of the associated health hazards, lead paint has not been used in residential and commercial buildings since 1978. While there is no lead paint on buildings constructed since that year, any structure built before 1978 could have lead paint and potentially put tenants and visitors at risk of serious health concerns. Lead paint represents a severe health hazard and if it is not addressed or tenants are not warned of its presence, the property owner may be financially liable for resulting health concerns.

If you have been sickened by exposure to lead paint on another party’s property, we can help you to seek financial compensation for medical bills and other damages.

Lead Paint Poisoning Facts

An individual contracts lead paint poisoning when their body accumulates a large amount of lead. This lead may enter the body through ingestion or inhalation, subsequently disrupting bodily processes and damaging organs and tissue. It also affects the nervous system and poses the gravest threat to children who are still developing. Several important facts to know about lead paint poisoning:

  • Lead poisoning occurs mostly in people’s homes
  • Children 6 years old and under are the most at-risk
  • Old paint may disintegrate and discharge lead particles in the air
  • Water may contain lead from lead pipes
  • Symptoms may include abdominal pain, headaches, and swollen gums

A property owner’s negligence creates an unsafe environment, unfairly burdening individuals and families with health issues and large medical bills.
