Waterbury Lead Poisoning Lawyers

There is No Safe amount of Lead Exposure

If you or your loved one were exposed to lead or diagnosed with lead poisoning in Connecticut, it is in your best interest to make sure that you retain legal counsel. You could be entitled to damages that include compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

It is not always easy to determine who is responsible for the lead poisoning. Depending on a person’s situation, lead poisoning exposure may be the result of where an individual lives, works, or, in cases involving children, attend school.

Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers represents lead poisoning victims in Waterbury and many other surrounding areas of Connecticut. Our firm will make every effort to help you obtain all of the compensation you need and deserve.

We understand how confusing it can be for lead poisoning victims to get justice in these cases. Call (203) 437-6190 to have our Waterbury lead poisoning attorneys provide a complete evaluation of your case during a free consultation.

Do I Need A Lead Poisoning Lawyer?

One of the first reasons for you to contact an attorney for help with a lead poisoning case is that the lawyer will be able to conduct an independent investigation to determine precisely how your lead poisoning occurred. The attorney can then assess which parties may be liable.

Another critical reason to have legal representation concerns possible phone calls from insurance companies in some cases. Insurers may offer victims lump-sum settlements to resolve their claims, but these are almost always lowball offers that are far short of what people are entitled to.

You will want a lawyer to handle all of your dealings with insurance companies on your behalf. An attorney will be able to identify the people responsible for your lead poisoning and work to hold them accountable.

Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers understands the overwhelming number of concerns people face when diagnosed with lead poisoning. Our firm will either negotiate a fair and full settlement or file a lawsuit to take your case to trial.

Types of Lead Poisoning Cases We Handle

Lead poisoning is incredibly complex. People may be diagnosed with lead poisoning in any one of a number of circumstances.

Our firm has experience representing people who suffered lead poisoning because of lead-painted pipes in their residences. In such cases, landlords could be liable for failure to warn these renters about possible exposure.

In some cases, people may have workers’ compensation claims when lead poisoning occurred in workplaces. It is also possible for school districts to face potential liability when children are diagnosed with lead poisoning as the result of lead in water at schools.

 Lead Poisoning: How Frequently Does This Occur?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) uses a reference level of 5 micrograms per deciliter (µg/dL) to identify children with elevated blood lead levels. The Lead and Healthy Homes received 83,274 blood lead tests for children under the age of 6, according to the Connecticut Department of Public Health 2015 Annual Disease Surveillance Report on Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention and Control.

Among children under 6 years of age who had a confirmed blood lead test, the report stated that 2,156 children had levels of greater than or equal to 5 µg/dL, 233 children had levels of greater than or equal to 15 µg/dL, and 126 children had levels of greater than or equal to 20 µg/dL. Among children under 6 years of age who had a confirmed blood lead test, the number of new cases included 1,390 children who had levels of greater than or equal to 5 µg/dL, 182 children who had levels of greater than or equal to 15 µg/dL, and 98 children who had levels of greater than or equal to 20 µg/dL. Since tracking began in 1996, the 74.1 percent of children between one and two years of age who had a lead screening in 2015 was the highest of any year.

Waterbury was identified in the report as one of the towns with between 101 and 339 lead-poisoned children with levels of greater than or equal to 5 µg/dL. Waterbury was also one of the towns with between 20 and 33 cases involving levels of greater than or equal to 15 µg/dL.
