New London Lead Poisoning Lawyers

The New London lead poisoning lawyers of Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers are here to help victims and their families take legal action against the parties responsible. Many people assume that lead poisoning is a thing of the past, but it is still a major threat today, particularly for children. Lead can be found in many locations where it should have been eliminated decades ago. If someone accidentally introduces lead to their bodies, it can lead to serious medical problems, including lowered IQ and disabilities in children. In adults, it can lead to problems with blood-forming, the urinary system, and the reproductive system. It can be deadly for anyone.

To make sure you don’t deal with these consequences alone, you should contact the lawyers at Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers. We have decades of success holding those responsible for lead poisoning to account and providing compensation that allows families to overcome the difficulties related to their lead poisoning.

If you suspect that you or your child are suffering from lead poisoning, don’t hesitate to contact Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers for help. You are likely entitled to compensation from those who harmed you. To learn more, call us today at (860) 772-2280.

A Lead Poisoning Lawyer Can Help You With Your Case

Discovering that you or your child has lead poisoning can be traumatic. It is common to feel like the situation is your fault, particularly if your child is the one suffering. However, the truth is that other entities are likely responsible for the poisoning.

To prove this, though, you will likely need a lawyer. A lawyer with experience handling lead poisoning cases will know how to gather the evidence that proves others have let you and your family down. While you take care of yourself and try to get your life back to normal, a lawyer can work with experts and use the full force of the law to secure the compensation you need to cover medical bills, wage losses, future expenses related to the poisoning, and overall pain and suffering.

Common Causes of Lead Poisoning Cases

Lead poisoning is often related to older homes that haven’t been repainted when they should have been, but that isn’t the only source. In recent years, there have been lead crises in the most unlikely locations, and there’s no telling where it might come from next. A few of the most common causes of lead poisoning include:

  • Old paint on homes: This is the most common source of lead poisoning in New Jersey. Those at fault may include:
    • Landlords
    • Homeowners
    • Property managers
    • Lead removal contractors
    • Municipalities
  • Water supply: The story of Flint, Michigan is infamous around the country now. At the moment, there are no major known New Jersey issues with lead in the water supply, but it is important to remain vigilant.
  • Lead in the air: Though not a common problem in America anymore, pollution can include lead, which when breathed in can lead to lead poisoning. As with water issues, it is important to watch out in case manufacturers are not acting responsibly.
  • Toys: Toys made in other countries can have extremely high amounts of lead if they are not properly inspected.
  • Jewelry: As with toys, some jewelry may have lead in it, which if ingested by a child, can lead to poisoning.
  • Clothing: Some clothing has been found to have lead paint on it.

If you believe someone you know is suffering from lead poisoning from any of the above or other causes, contact your doctor immediately, and then contact the lawyers at Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers.

Detecting Lead Poisoning

Unfortunately, lead poisoning can be hard to detect. It can build up for months or years, and the signs can often be confused with other causes. In children, some symptoms of lead poisoning include:

  • Developmental delay
  • Irritability
  • ADHD-esque symptoms
  • Learning disabilities
  • Irritability
  • Abdominal pain, constipation, and vomiting
  • Loss of appetite and weight loss

In adults, the symptoms of lead poisoning can include:

  • Memory/concentration difficulties
  • High blood pressure
  • Muscle pain
  • Headaches
  • Reproductive problems – miscarriage, stillbirth, etc.

Because these symptoms are often associated with other problems, the best way to check for lead poisoning is with a blood test. Currently, the Center for Disease Control says that 10mg/deciliter is enough to qualify as lead poisoning. The CDC also estimates that 10% of preschoolers suffer from some amount of lead poisoning, with up to 4 million households with children being affected across the country.

If you suspect you or your child has lead poisoning, visit a doctor right away, and then contact Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers for help pursuing compensation and justice.
