Health Risks Associated with Lead Exposure
Lead is an extremely toxic metal which can cause minor to serious health issues in both children and adults. Lead poisoning is especially hazardous as symptoms may not appear until dangerous levels of lead have accumulated within the body. For this reason, workers may not be immediately aware that workplace exposure has made them ill. If think you might have been exposed to lead and are experiencing the following symptoms, you should see a doctor immediately.
- Health risks associated with lead exposure include:
- Inability to concentrate
- Memory loss
- High blood pressure
- Joint and muscle pain
Workers’ Compensation Insurance Claims
Until the 1970’s, lead was a common component in many commercially available products and was widely used in the construction of buildings throughout the United States. Now, we have a better understanding of the effects of lead on the human body and employers have a responsibility to provide a hazard-free workspace. If you have fallen ill due to toxic exposure and the workers’ compensation insurance is needlessly delaying or has denied your claim, it may be time to get a lawyer from our firm involved.
At the Alvandi Law Group, we know how to handle insurance company representatives. If you are contacted by an insurance adjuster, provide us with their contact information and we will deal with them on your behalf to help maximize your claim. Lead poisoning is completely preventable and you should not pay more than you already have for an injury at work.
