Clarksburg Lead Paint Poisoning Lawyer
Until relatively recently, lead was used extensively in paint products. While lead can improve the look and durability of paint, we now know that exposure to lead can cause severe damage to many parts of the body. The sale of lead paint in the United States was banned in 1977, but it can still be found on many old houses. Since young children have been known to eat flakes of lead paint from these houses, home owners are required to ensure their property does not pose a risk. If they fail to ensure the safety of others, they can be held responsible for the consequences.

Effects of Lead Paint Poisoning
Lead is extremely toxic, causing serious and sometimes life-threatening damage to the nervous system, the gastrointestinal system, and the kidneys. The symptoms are most severe after repeated exposure to lead, but they can appear after small one-time doses. Effects of lead paint poisoning may include:
- Neurological damage
- Kidney failure
- Brain damage
- Stunted growth
- Slurred speech
- Gastrointestinal diseases
Doctors may be able to treat some of these symptoms, but unfortunately there is no cure for lead paint poisoning.
