Fairfield County Child Poisoning Lawyer

Lead paint, the most common source of poisoning in children, is associated with an increased risk of developing learning disabilities.

As a parent, it represents your worst nightmare: your child is poisoned due to lead or some other toxic substance. Lead poisoning is a leading cause of injuries to children in Fairfield County throughout the United States. Vishno Law Firm often handles personal injury and wrongful death cases involving children poisoned after being exposed to lead paint in cities and urban areas where housing stock is oldest. Even the tiniest amount of lead-based paint can cause devastating and potentially life-threatening injuries to children, including nervous system injuries, traumatic brain injuries, coma or death.

At Vishno Law Firm, we understand children may come into contact with lead and other toxic chemicals in a variety of ways. When a building manager or property owner's negligence leads to a child poisoning, or a toy is manufactured with toxic materials, the negligent party who caused the accident needs to be held responsible. Contact us today. Vishno Law Firm is here to help your family heal as much as possible, on every front.

Why are children susceptible to lead toxicity?

For a number of reasons, small children (age 7 and younger) primarily are at risk of lead-paint exposure. Their smaller bodies absorb up to 50 percent of the lead they ingest, while adults' bodies absorb only 10 percent. Small children also tend to put objects in their mouths that may have lead contamination.

If lead poisoning is not detected early, the child may experience some of the following problems:

  • Behavioral issues such as hyperactivity
  • Slowed growth
  • Brain damage or nervous system damage
  • Hearing problems
  • Headaches
