Lead Poisoning

The use of lead in most consumer products has been banned in the United States for years, yet innocent victims continue to suffer serious injury from lead paint in products manufactured overseas. Lead exposure is particularly toxic to children.

Lead Exposure effects:

Lead paint in toys is a leading culprit, but children can also suffer poisonous exposure from the household paint used in older homes. Millions of toys were recalled this year because they contained lead paint. While many manufacturers acted quickly to recall the toys, countless children may have been exposed to the dangerous substance.

If you suspect lead exposure in your child, you should contact a doctor for immediate medical evaluation – according to the Center for Disease Control, any level of lead exposure can pose serious risks for children.

Consumers should be able to trust that children’s products are safe – but when they aren’t, legal action must be taken. If lead poisoning has caused injury to your child or another loved one, you need the help of an experienced law firm familiar with lead paint cases. At Gemma Law Associates Inc., we believe our clients have a right to hold companies accountable for failing to meet important safety regulations. Financial compensation may not reverse the damage your child or loved one has suffered, but it can help pay for the high medical costs associated with recovery or rehabilitative therapy.

If your child or loved one has suffered injury from lead poisoning, contact Gemma Law Associates, Inc., toll-free or submit an online contact form. We serve clients in Providence, Newport, Woonsocket, Cranston, Bristol, and Pawtucket. We’ve been helping clients in Rhode Island for more than 45 years – and we can help you.
