Tennessee Lead Paint Exposure Attorneys
Before its use was banned in 1978, lead was used in a number of household products, especially paint. Unfortunately, children and other individuals living in residences built before 1978 may be exposed to lead paint, which can result in serious injury and illness. Even worse, many property owners may know of lead paint use on their premises but fail to warn those who visit or even live there.
At Pohl & Berk, LLP, our legal team is dedicated to holding these negligent property owners accountable for the inexcusable and preventable harm you or your family sustained due to lead paint exposure. Our attorneys believe in defending victims’ rights and helping them fight for the full and fair compensation that they need to cover their losses.
Consequences of Lead Paint Exposure
Sadly, children are especially susceptible to the dangers of lead. Not only can they encounter and ingest lead in the form of paint chips that may flake off a wall, but it is unfortunately present in many children’s toys, as well. When ingested, lead paint can have serious health consequences, including:
- Brain Damage
- Nerve Disorders
- Stunted Growth
- Severe Headaches
- Hearing problems
- Behavior and learning problems
These are only some of the problems that have been associated with lead paint exposure. With such serious potential health effects, lead paint exposure is not something that should ever be taken lightly. At Pohl & Berk, LLP, we have the experience necessary to help families who have been affected by lead paint poisoning, and we want to help you pursue justice against the party responsible for lead exposure that never should have happened in the first place.
