Company Liable for Lead Paint Injuries

The owner of a large apartment complex has been ordered by a jury to pay damages to two children who have life long brain damage from lead paint in their apartment complex. For years the damage done to humans by lead paint has been know and it is banned from paint and products in the United States. Just last year toys containing lead paint were sold to kids in the U.S. Lead in very small quantities can cause deformity and brain damage in children and can have severe consequences to adults.

This case was totally avoidable. There was no reason for these children to be permanently harmed. The apartment complex was advertised to the public as “lead paint free.” It is this type of irresponsible conduct that deserves punishment through the legal system. There is lead paint in public building in Mississippi. Whether or not it poses a health hazard is beyond this article. The children received a legal settlement through the legal system but it will never make them healthy again. The money will help with their injuries but this should never have happened.
