We Never Charge Attorneys Fees Unless We Recover Money for You
Lead-based paint was introduced as a faster drying and more durable paint option. It was widely used in buildings and to coat toys and furniture until the Consumer Product Safety Commission banned it as a safety hazard in 1977. You can still find it in many older homes and buildings throughout Massachusetts and some manufacturers still use it. When a 3-year-old was poisoned after living in an apartment with lead paint, founding attorney of A Good Law Firm, Alan R. Goodman advocated for a $500,000 structured settlement that would protect and grow the money tax-free for the child’s benefit.

Symptoms are Hard to Diagnose and the Damage Can Last a Lifetime
Lead is a soft metal that is very toxic, especially for small children. It can cause serious health problems or even death when it accumulates in your body. What makes lead paint even more dangerous is that symptoms of poisoning often do not appear until dangerous amounts are already in your body.
Lead poisoning can cause medical complications that can require life-long treatment and care, including:
- Damage to the nervous system
- Heart problems
- Reproductive issues, premature birth, and miscarriage
- Stunted growth and delayed development in children
- Learning disabilities, ADHD, and even antisocial behavior
- Kidney problems
- Seizures, swelling of the brain and coma
