Seeking Optimal Results For Victims Of Lead Poisoning
While lead paint has been banned for decades in New York, many buildings expose children and adults to unsafe levels of lead. Many small multiple-family buildings in Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx and other areas of New York have paint chipping from the walls and ceilings. Residents of these apartments, condos or other units may be exposed to harmful levels of lead.
Lead exposure gained new attention recently as investigations revealed lead contamination in water supplies in cities across the country. However, the most common source of lead exposure in young children is lead-based paint. Many older buildings were coated with lead-based paint, and the toxin remains in homes across New York City. Paint chips, dust, debris and soil surrounding older buildings may be contaminated with lead. Ingesting or breathing in contaminated matter creates a high risk for lead poisoning. Children are the most vulnerable, however, adults can also suffer significant injury, or even death, from toxic exposure to lead.
