The Dangers of Lead Paint Poisoning

Lead paint was banned in 1978 due to its toxicity, but still exists on the walls of some older houses, apartments, and commercial buildings. It is especially dangerous to children who might consume fallen paint chips, and can result in life-long complications and even death in severe cases.

It is the responsibility of property owners to eliminate dangerous lead residue on their property to ensure the health and safety of the occupants. If you or someone you love has been the victim of lead paint poisoning due to a property owner’s negligence, a Dallas premises liability lawyer can help you file a claim and fight to win compensation for your expenses and suffering.

Symptoms of Lead Paint Poisoning

Lead poisoning is particularly dangerous because the symptoms don’t show until the lead in one’s system has reached a dangerous level. The symptoms to look out for include:

  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Abdominal pain, loss of appetite, and vomiting
  • Loss of hearing
  • Sluggishness and fatigue
  • Moodiness
  • Loss of mental functions
  • Sudden weight loss
  • High blood pressure

If you notice symptoms of lead paint poisoning, you should seek immediate medical attention. If your illness is the result of the negligent behavior of a property owner, a Dallas premises liability lawyer can help you hold the responsible parties accountable.
