Dallas Lead Paint Poisoning Lawyers

Lead is extremely toxic for humans and can be especially damaging when victims are exposed for long periods of time. The most common source of lead poisoning is lead based paint. Although lead has been banned in paint manufacturing since 1978, older homes, apartments, or commercial buildings may still have lead paint on the walls.

Lead paint poisoning may result in life-long health complications and in some circumstances, death. It is the responsibility of the property owner to remove lead residue from the property in order to protect the health and safety of the occupants. If you or someone you love has been the victim of lead paint poisoning because of a property owner’s negligent behavior, a Dallas premises liability lawyer of theĀ Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter can work with you to pursue compensation for your injuries and medical expenses. Call our offices at (214) 457-1668 to schedule a consultation.

Symptoms of Lead Poisoning

Unfortunately, lead poisoning is virtually undetectable in the early stages. Usually, symptoms don’t surface until the levels of lead in a person’s system have reached dangerous levels. As such, when symptoms do appear, it is important to seek medical attention as quickly as possible. Common symptoms include:

  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Sluggishness and fatigue
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Memory loss
  • Deteriorating mental functions
  • Mood swings
  • Hearing loss
  • High blood pressure

If you or a loved one has suffered from the effects of lead paint poisoning because of the negligent behavior of a property owner, a premises liability lawyer in Dallas can help.
