Lead Poisoning

If you were the victim of lead poisoning, we can help.

Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers has extensive experience helping adults and children who have been the victim of lead poisoning. Our Hartford lead poisoning lawyers are here to get you the compensation you need to rebuild your life, and we will work aggressively to hold those responsible for your illness accountable.

Lead poisoning is most often accidental and can occur if a child or adult is exposed to paint or if they inhale dust from lead paint. Lead can be found in high concentrations in children’s toys, cosmetics, water, household paint or supplies, or even in a work environment, such as a factory or construction site.

A lead poisoning case is more complex than a normal premises liability claim, as the effects of lead poisoning sometimes do not show up until years after the initial exposure. The symptoms may also manifest in ways that are not immediately apparent. When a child is poisoned at a young age, it can have serious long-term consequences, including developmental disabilities. Younger children (ages six and under) can suffer severe developmental and health issues from ingestion or exposure to lead. In adults, lead poisoning may damage the urinary, nervous, and reproductive systems, and can even be life-threatening.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury due to lead poisoning, you are entitled to receive compensatory damages for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses incurred from exposure to dangerous lead. If you believe you or a loved one have been victims of lead poisoning, you need to consult with an experienced lawyer that can investigate your case and help you receive proper compensation and damages for your injuries. Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers has won millions of dollars for personal injury clients during our years of practice, and we are ready to put our knowledge and experience to work for you. To learn more about how we can help you, contact us today by calling (860) 722-9923, chatting live on our website, or filling out the form on the right of your screen to schedule a free consultation.

Why Do I Need a Lawyer?

Victims have a right to take legal action against negligent property owners or manufacturers who failed to provide an adequate warning regarding unsafe lead in their products or on their property. Those individuals who were exposed can file lawsuits against any parties that are responsible for the exposure. People who work in jobs where they were regularly exposed to lead may have the option to receive workers’ compensation.

When pursuing a lead poisoning lawsuit, it is in your best interest to hire a skilled lawyer to handle the case. The insurance company may encourage you to make statements that may be used against you in court. Their job is to try and obtain information from you to offer you a low settlement or deny your claim completely. If you have an attorney, they will deal with the insurers and responsible parties so that you can focus on your health.

In addition, a lawyer will have a greater understanding of the medical aspects of your case. They can consult with medical experts to gather evidence that the lead you were exposed to directly caused your current injuries or illness. They can then use this evidence in tandem with other evidence and their knowledge of the law to demonstrate negligence on the part of the liable party. With a lawyer’s assistance, you are likely to receive a far greater sum of money than you would trying to handle your case on your own.

Symptoms of Lead Poisoning

The effects of lead poisoning can be disastrous and even deadly. There are several factors that may determine what symptoms an adult or child will present following lead poisoning. Symptom levels depend on the duration, frequency, and severity of the lead exposure. Symptoms of lead poisoning may include the following:

  • Headaches
  • Abdominal pain and cramping
  • Hearing problems
  • Slowed body growth
  • Constipation
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Kidney damage
  • Anemia
  • Low appetite
  • Low energy
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Irritability
  • Behavioral problems
  • Reduced IQ

If you have noticed any of these symptoms in yourself or a loved one and think lead poisoning may be the cause, immediately seek medical attention, then contact Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers for legal assistance.

Compensation and Damages in Lead Poisoning Exposure Cases

In cases of exposure on residential or business property, the owner may not have enough money to cover the long-term medical and financial costs, let alone pay for damages awarded for pain and suffering. If you are insured, your medical insurance will initially pay for medical treatment. However, the unanswered question is whether the responsible party’s insurer will pay for any other damages.

In some instances, insurance will cover liability for lead poisoning. In others, the issue of liability may be more complicated. You may have to sue the responsible party and their insurance company to prove they had coverage. Your medical insurer can also sue the liable party and their insurer to recoup medical expenses your medical insurance has paid out.

In the case of lead poisoning in the workplace, the worker’s compensation system usually covers medical expenses and lost income. However, if you want to recover pain and suffering damages, you may need to sue your employer. In cases of product liability, you will have to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer for any damages and injuries caused by lead exposure.

It may take a long time to finalize a lead poisoning lawsuit. Several factors that might impact the length of the lawsuit include the discovery process, the willingness of the defendant to settle out of court, and the length of time required for the court to hear the case.
