Exposure to lead can be dangerous and may cause lead poisoning. Despite current regulations, lead may be found in older buildings and houses, paint, toys, contaminated water, or contaminated air. This exposure can be serious, causing injuries that severely impair a child’s early development or an individual’s ability to function. Lead poisoning can be devastating and victims may be faced with pain and suffering, large medical bills, lost wages, an inability to continue working or enjoy everyday activities, or even wrongful death.
If you or a family member has been injured or has died as a result of lead poisoning, you may be entitled to recover damages. To schedule a free phone consultation with one of our New Jersey and New York lead poisoning lawyers, contact us at (973) 509-8500.
