Lead Paint Attorneys | Romanucci & Blandin
Lead based paint has been known to cause a variety of medical issues, which include stunted growth, learning disabilities, delayed development, seizures and death. Lead paint was used in homes, until it was outlawed in 1978.
A common misconception about lead poisoning is that children are usually poisoned when they eat paint chips that contain lead paint. This most certainly can cause lead poisoning, but the more common cause of lead poisoning is inhalation of lead dust that is in the air in older homes or buildings.
