Our Experienced Attorneys Have Collected Millions for Children Who Were Lead Poisoned
Lead is a pervasive environmental toxin capable of wreaking havoc on a young child’s development. Awareness of lead’s devastating neurotoxic effects prompted its elimination from gasoline, paint, and plumbing in the 1970s and 1980s. However, widespread use of lead during the first three quarters of the 20th century created a toxic legacy of crumbling paint, corroded plumbing, and contaminated soil that cities around the nation are still struggling to overcome.
