Lead Paint Poisoning Lawyers
Lead paint was used in many homes and buildings across the state before it was found to have adverse health effects. Older products and products manufactured outside of the United States, including children’s toys, often have lead paint on them as well. When ingested, lead paint can be harmful, especially to small children since they often put their hands in their mouths. Lead in paint cannot be smelled or tasted. Due to the highly toxic nature of lead, property owners are required by law to notify occupants of lead paint on the premises. However, many property owners fail to give notice, putting individuals in danger.
