Lead Paint Poisoning Attorneys
Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Tucson, Phoenix, Flagstaff and all Arizona cities and communities
Homeowners and property managers have a responsibility to ensure that their premises are in safe condition for residents and guests. Many older buildings are coated with lead paint, which can result in health problems for anyone who ingests the substance. When the paint cracks, chips, or begins to flake off from a surface, it can leave small particles in the air that may be ingested by innocent bystanders. Because of the extreme toxicity of lead, even a small amount can have a devastating effect.
If you or someone you love has been a victim of lead paint poisoning because of the negligence of another party, you may have grounds for legal action. Contact the Tucson, Phoenix, and Flagstaff lead paint poisoning attorneys of Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.C., to speak to a qualified lawyer about your rights today.
Symptoms of Lead Paint Poisoning
Once lead has worked its way into a person’s system, it can have immediate and serious negative effects on the individual’s health. Some of the common symptoms of lead paint poisoning include:
- Stomach pain
- Chest pain
- Loss of appetite
- Sudden mood or behavioral changes
- Loss of energy
A simple test can check the amount of lead in your system and may help you to determine the source of your lead poisoning. If a building owner or property manager fails to acknowledge the presence of lead on their premises or to conduct regular inspections for dangerous substances, many people may be in danger.
