Chicago Lead Poisoning Lawyers

Lead Poisoning If your child has been diagnosed with lead poisoning, he or she likely has developed the condition due to environmental contaminants such as lead paint in apartments or lead-based ingredients in toys or furniture. Chicago lead poisoning attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyer know how to determine where the exposure occurred and how to determine the causal nature of the injury with testing performed by leaders in the field of pediatric neurology.

Progressive nature of lead poisoning in toddlers and children

Lead poisoning occurs when lead levels build up in your body over an extended amount of time (months or even years). Usually, lead poisoning is not detected until lead levels are dangerously high. Low-level lead exposure (10 micrograms in a deciliter (half-cup) of blood) can cause permanent damage in children. This low-level exposure is enough to affect a child’s brain development, which can cause lasting damage. Lead levels of 25 micrograms in a deciliter of blood can cause kidney and nervous system damage.

At very high levels, lead exposure can cause unconsciousness, seizures, and even death.

Common symptoms of lead poisoning

The following complications  are associated with lead poisoning in children:

  • Learning disabilities
  • Speech problems
  • Brain damage
  • Language, speech, and behavior problems
  • Decreased muscle/bone growth
  • Poor muscle coordination
  • Kidney damage
  • Nervous system damage

Recognizing the dangers of lead poisoning in children, Illinois has passed laws that require landlords and product manufacturers to remove lead-based products from their apartments and products.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
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
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
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
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
