Side Effects of Lead Poisoning

Although the use of lead products is no longer allowed in United States construction, as it caused many people to develop lead poisoning, this dangerous substance still lingers in structures that were built in previous decades. Many older apartment complexes, homes, and commercial structures used lead-based products in their construction, making it necessary for property owners to be diligent in protecting visitors from coming into contact with this poisonous product. Should a property owner fail to do this, it could cause an innocent person to develop lead poisoning, which can cause a number of serious health problems.

Common Side Effects of Lead Poisoning

When a person is exposed to lead, either in large quantities or gradually over time, lead poisoning can occur. In many cases, the side effects of lead poisoning are hard to notice at first, but become more prominent over time. These effects might include:

  • Brain damage
  • Cognitive disability
  • Internal organ damage or failure
  • Nervous system damage
  • Seizures
  • Loss of consciousness

In addition to these and other health problems associated with lead poisoning, a person may lose their life as a result of the lead poisoning. All of these complications and repercussions of lead poisoning can usually be avoided by diligent and responsible property owners.
