North Carolina Lead Poisoning Lawyers

Fighting for the Fair & Reasonable Recovery You Deserve

Not much was known about the effects of lead on humans until people began exhibiting symptoms of illness and disease and even began dying after lead exposure. Furthermore, it began to become apparent that children were at a higher risk of lead poisoning due to a higher absorption rate than adults.

Before these findings, lead was widely used in many products; chief among them was paint. Lead was also found in batteries, plumbing pipes, ammunition, and even toys. It was so widely used in the past that it is still found in dangerous levels in the air, water, and soil/food.

If you or your loved one suffered as a result of lead exposure, Lanier Law Group can help. Since 1997, our North Carolina lead poisoning attorneys have been representing injured victims and their families across the state. We are prepared to fight tirelessly for you and your recovery.

Common Causes of Lead Exposure & Poisoning

Exposure to lead comes from several sources, primarily household paints, leaded gasoline, and lead-contaminated drinking water. Of these sources, lead paint and lead paint dust are the most common. Lead paint dust is more dangerous than lead paint chips because smaller particles of lead are more easily absorbed.

You can be exposed to lead by eating contaminated food or water, inhaling lead dust, or working around products containing lead on a regular basis. Most commonly found in house paints and leaded gasoline, smaller particles of lead are more easily absorbed. Workers in the construction industry are very susceptible to lead exposure, as they are frequently around old buildings where lead paint was used. When these old buildings are demolished, lead paint chips and dust can severely contaminate the air. A toxic amount of this substance in the body can lead to serious health effects.

Injuries Caused by Lead Poisoning

Individuals of all ages can be exposed to lead. With toxic levels of exposure, you could suffer from lead poisoning.

Some of the many severe side effects of lead poisoning include:

  • Anemia
  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Hearing impairment
  • Brain damage
  • Kidney damage
  • Damage to the reproductive system
  • Increased blood pressure

Children younger than eight are in a special risk group due to developmental difficulties associated with lead exposure. Even low levels of lead can block an infant's mental development. Lead exposure is linked with reduced intelligence, learning disabilities, low graduation rates, and even criminal behavior.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
