Lead Paint Poisoning Symptoms and Effects
Lead poisoning is caused by prolonged exposure to lead-based products. While the use of lead paint for homes, children’s toys, and furniture was outlawed by the Federal government in 1978, some older buildings can still have layers of toxic paint on the walls. Lead poisoning can be hard to detect until serious symptoms start presenting, and the effects can be most severe for children. Symptoms include the following:
- Mood disorders
- Developmental delay
- Learning disabilities
- Memory and concentration loss
- Loss of appetite and weight loss
- Abdominal pain, nausea, constipation, vomiting
- Reduced sperm count
- Miscarriage, stillbirth, or premature birth of babies who may have low birth weight or slowed growth
Some of these symptoms can affect people for the rest of their lives, including permanent brain damage in the crucial development stages for children. The treatment for such health complications can also last a lifetime, and lead to large medical bills and therapy or developmental support. You should not have to face these consequences alone, especially if another party’s negligence caused your suffering.
How to Avoid Lead Paint Poisoning
Children are most often poisoned by lead-based paint when it peels off the walls in chips. If children ingest those paint chips they are at a very high risk of dangerous lead poisoning. You can also be exposed to lead poisoning by inhaling dust from the lead paint. So, if you are on a property which has lead paint, be sure to quickly identify problems with peeling paint. It is the property owner’s responsibility to keep remnants of lead-based paint contained so that no one who visits the property is exposed to this dangerous substance. If you are renting a property that has been painted with lead-based paint, be sure to reach out to the property owner to ensure that all appropriate safety measures are in place. If they are not, the property owner’s negligence could cause lasting damage, and they could be found liable for damages.
