Santa Ana Childhood Lead Poisoning Lawyer

People in California, including those right here in Santa Ana, are placed at great risk when they are exposed to lead. Santa Ana was incorporated in 1886, nearly 100 years before lead-based paint was federally banned throughout the United States in 1978. As such, there are still many homes and commercial buildings in the city that contain it. While anyone can suffer the harmful effects of lead exposure, children are particularly vulnerable and will experience the most severe symptoms. As soon as a child starts to show symptoms of lead poisoning, it is critical that they see a doctor right away. After a child receives treatment, parents should contact a Santa Ana childhood lead poisoning lawyer who can help them make things right.

Why is Lead Exposure So Dangerous for Children?

Being exposed to lead is extremely dangerous for children, and the effects may remain with them for the rest of their lives. Children who are exposed to lead may experience learning difficulties, language and speech delays, behavioral issues, and loss of activity. Children may also be at an increased risk of developing ADHD, autism, and other conditions that can remain with them for the rest of their lives.

Determining Liability for Lead Poisoning

If you believe that your child suffered harm as a result of lead exposure, you may be able to file a claim against the person or entity who caused it. This is a personal injury claim and as with other cases, you must prove that another party was negligent and that your child suffered harm as a result. There are many parties who can be held liable for lead exposure.

Landlords have a legal duty to inform tenants about the presence of lead-based paint in a rental unit before the tenant signs a lease. Certain EPA regulations also hold landlords liable if they fail to provide full disclosure about the presence of lead on a property. Real estate sellers must also inform any potential buyer about the presence of lead-based paint on a property, regardless of whether the building is for residential or commercial purposes.

When landlords or sellers fail to fulfill their legal duty, they can be held liable if someone suffers harm due to lead exposure. Our Santa Ana childhood lead poisoning attorney can identify the liable party and hold them responsible for paying the full and fair settlement you are entitled to.
