Lead paint used in residential homes is toxic, and could cause irreversible brain damage and other serious injuries. Although the paint was banned thirty years ago, many poorly maintained rental homes contain flaking paint that could cause lead poisoning if it is eaten or sucked on by young children.

STATUS OF LEAD PAINT LITIGATION: Lawsuits are still being pursued by children and young adults diagnosed with lead poisoning.


OVERVIEW: The use of lead paint was banned in 1978 by the Consumer Product Safety Commission since lead exposure could cause severe and permanent brain damage, especially for young children.

Prior to being banned, lead was commonly added to paint to speed drying, increase durability, and improve overall quality. However, it has been confirmed that the toxic lead in the paint causes serious developmental and cognitive problems in children who eat or suck on paint chips or breath in the dust that could result from pealing paint.

In cities with older homes and poorly maintained rental homes, lead paint is often still present. If flaking or pealing paint is not prevented, young children living in the home or apartment could be exposed and suffer lead poisoning.

SYMPTOMS OF LEAD PAINT POISONING: If ingested, inhaled or absorbed in any way, lead paint can cause elevated lead blood levels. Possible lead poisoning problems could include:

  • Nervous System Injury
  • Brain Damage
  • Seizures or Convulsions
  • Growth or Mental Retardation
  • Coma
  • Death
