Louisville Mercury Poisoning Lawyers

There are a number of everyday products that contain certain chemicals that could potentially be hazardous to your health. One common chemical that can be found in light bulbs, thermometers, and others is mercury. Although mercury is not dangerous when it is being used in these types of products, it can be hazardous when light bulbs or thermometers break and the chemical is inhaled or ingested.

Mercury can cause devastating health consequences and may even be lethal. When property owners do not properly clean broken light bulbs or thermometers, or do not replace items with unsafe amounts of mercury, they are putting others at risk of dangerous illness. For more information about your legal options, contact the Louisville mercury poisoning lawyers of the Sampson Law Firm today at 502-584-5050.

Mercury Poisoning Side Effects

Property owners are responsible for taking action to keep tenants and guests safe while on their property. If you have been exposed to a dangerous amount of mercury on another person’s property, you could experience any of the following:

  • Impaired peripheral vision
  • Sharp stabbing pain in feet, hands, and around the mouth
  • Overall feeling of weakness
  • Vertigo
  • Headaches
  • Trouble breathing
  • Impaired speech, hearing, and ability to walk
  • Short-term memory loss

It is important for you to seek medical attention promptly in the event that you suspect you are suffering from mercury poisoning. Subsequently, you may benefit from seeking the counsel of an experienced and knowledgeable attorney.
