How can I protect my family from lead exposure?

How can I protect my family from lead exposure? Yes. There are plenty of steps that you can take to reduce your family’s exposure to lead and to limit its absorption into the body. Make sure that you run water for at least a minute before using it, mop regularly and clean the walls and windows with soapy water in order to keep the dust down. Feeding your family a diet rich in calcium, iron and vitamin C will also help the body reject lead absorption and reduce the damage caused by lead poisoning.

Other ways to reduce your family’s risk is to make sure your children wash their hands before meals, clean any toys that they come in regular contact with and look for visible signs of damage such as peeling or cracked paint and damage to lead pipes or plumbing fixtures. When seeking to repair chipped paint or pipes, you should contact the health department to learn how to make the repairs safely and without kicking the lead dust into the air, where it can become more dangerous to you and your family.

Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case.

★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User

This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa, Avvo User
