San Antonio Lead Paint Poisoning Lawyers
Lead was once a common component of paint, vinyl, certain enamels, and other products. Although its dangers were known by the early 1900s, businesses were able to prevent it from being banned in the US until 1978. As a result of this decades-long delay, many older buildings and products still contain lead paint; sometimes even brand new products contain this hazardous material due to corporate errors.
Lead poisoning can affect anyone, but children are especially susceptible to this danger. If your child has been injured by lead paint exposure due to a negligently built home or school, you could be able to receive compensation from the negligent party.

Warning Signs of Lead Poisoning
The danger of lead paint is related to the fact that it can chip or flake as it ages, potentially being inhaled or even eaten by small children. Lead accumulates in the body over time, creating both short-term symptoms and long-term complications. The early potential warning signs of lead poisoning include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Mood swings or hyperactivity
- Loss of consciousness
Long-term exposure to lead during childhood has been linked to a variety of permanent health conditions, including:
- Learning disabilities
- Neurological disorders
- Attention deficit disorder
