Lead Poisoning Injury Lawyer in California

Lead poisoning is a life-threatening condition in which the body has absorbed excessive amounts of lead. Lead may be inhaled or swallowed in contaminated food, water, and air. Lead poisoning affects people of all ages, but infants and children are especially vulnerable.

Symptoms of lead poisoning vary, but may include:

  • digestive system issues
  • impairments of the brain and nervous system
  • developmental problems in children

The EPA reports average lead levels vary across the state of California, with San Francisco County having lead soil levels of well over twice the EPA’s limit.

If you’ve been affected by lead poisoning, you may wrestle with medical bills, income loss, the physical recovery process, insurance negotiation, pain and suffering. Our California injury lawyers can connect you with doctors regardless of your insurance. While you’re being treated, we will pursue financial compensation for you. We don’t charge legal fees unless we successfully settle or win your case. For a complimentary lead poisoning case evaluation, call Johnson Attorneys Group at 1-800-208-3538 today.

Lead Poisoning and the Law

When evaluating your lead poisoning case, our lawyers will look for duty of reasonable care, breach of duty, and causation. In essence, did someone who had responsibility for your health violate the law and cause you an injury? In cases such as lead poisoning, every detail matters. That’s why it’s important to contact our legal team as soon as possible and save all documentation.

Who is liable for lead poisoning injuries?

Many people may be liable, including:

  • business owners
  • public facilities such as schools
  • construction companies
  • landlords
  • plumbers

If you’re renting out your home or a renter, you should be aware of laws surrounding lead paint and household pipes. If the house was built before 1978, the homeowner needs to ensure that there isn’t any lead-based paint in it. Additionally, during the renovation of a pre-1978 home, steps must be taken to contain lead-bearing dust and paint fragments. In terms of plumbing, all pipes that provide water for human consumption must be lead-free.

What about product liability? According to the California Health and Safety Code, children’s toys have very strict limits on the trace amounts of lead they can contain. Shop owners need to verify that the toys they stock are compliant with that code.

Product liability may extend to other items as well. If a product contains lead, clear warnings should be placed on the label. If an employee must work with items or materials that contain lead, they must be given adequate training and safety gear.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
