Lead Paint Exposure Lawyer
What Is Lead Paint Poisoning in Children?
Children are susceptible to lead paint poisoning, because when there is lead paint in the walls of a home or apartment, the children will pick the paint chips and eat it for food. Children of young ages learn about their world developmentally, by putting everything into their mouths. It is a great time of exploration as a young child, to taste and touch everything in the world around them.
This is why there is a big push to “childproof” your home when a child is young – it is to keep them out of harms way. But when there is lead-based paint in the walls, window sills or door frames, it can chip, and little ones can eat it. This will result in lead poisoning, which is very dangerous for children to experience. It can cause severe damage to their young and growing systems, and can result in serious consequences.

Adults Can Be Exposed to Lead Paint in the Workplace
Most people think of lead paint exposure for children, but adults can be exposed to lead in the workplace just as easily. Occupational exposure is common for adults, and in high levels it can cause death. If there is lead paint in the workplace in the walls, ceilings, window sills, window paint, floor paint or anywhere that there is the hazard of lead, the walking and foot traffic on the job will stir up the dust that makes for issues for adults. Lead can be inhaled quite easily, when it is in the room, in a workroom, foyer, basement, common area or anywhere that workers need to be to do their job on a daily basis. Here is where an adult can be exposed to lead and not even know it, until there are symptoms and serious bodily personal injuries have already occurred.
Why Is Lead Paint So Dangerous?
Lead paint is dangerous for children and for adults, but more dangerous for a child to be exposed to it. Lead can be inhaled or ingested, and adults only absorb under 10% of the lead they are exposed to in their environment. But children have a smaller body size, and they absorb up to 40% of the dangerous lead from paint in their environment. Lead that is absorbed, inhaled or ingested can damage the growing systems of children. Children and adults who are exposed to lead in lead paint can develop the following issues:
- Unusual behavior
- Developmental regression issues
- Vomiting and nausea
- Brain trauma
- Cerebral edema
- Intracranial pressure
- Neurological issues that are permanent
That’s right, some of these conditions of lead poisoning in children, and to every extent in adults, can be permanent. Adults can have airborne lead in concentrations that can make them sick in the workplace, if there is lead paint used in the walls, window sills, doorways or outside painted areas of a building. The dust from lead paint will float around on the ceiling and be kicked up again and again on the floors from use of foot traffic in the area. This is a serious problem affecting adults and children, and can permanently affect their bodily systems with grave consequences.
