Recognizing Mercury Poisoning

Mercury is extremely toxic to humans, especially when we are exposed over a long period of time or to an intense degree. Mercury poisoning can lead to cognitive disability, memory loss, loss of coordination, internal organ damage, and even fatality in the worst cases. Despite the known hazards of mercury, many innocent people still suffer from mercury poisoning because of property owner negligence. When property owners and managers fail to address items with mercurial substances, such as certain types of light bulbs, thermometers, and batteries, they can be held accountable for any resulting injuries and illnesses.

Signs of Mercury Poisoning

It is important to recognize the signs of possible mercury poisoning as early as possible in order to begin treatment before any irreparable injuries occur. Common symptoms of mercury poisoning include:

  • Trouble with peripheral vision
  • Intense weakness and fatigue
  • Episodes of vertigo
  • Difficulty walking
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Difficulty with hearing or speech
  • Stabbing pains in mouth, hands, or feet

If you or someone you love experiences these symptoms, you should see a doctor immediately.  If your mercury poisoning is the result of a premises owner’s carelessness in containing mercurial substances, he or she could be obligated to cover your treatment costs, lost wages, and other damages.
