MINNESOTA LEAD EXPOSURE LAWYERS – CDC LOWERS STANDARDS.
The personal injury lawyers at the Schmidt Salita Law Team remind you that exposure of lead-based paint, plumbing, and other items can seriously harm a child’s health.
The CDC maintains that there is no safe level for lead in children’s blood.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has recently reduced the blood lead reference value (BLRV) which is the level of abnormal lead in human blood. The prior BLRV level of 5.0 ug/dl has now been lowered to 3.5 ug/dl. This change means that healthcare providers should be concerned about the negative health consequences of blood lead values which are lower than before.
Lead exposure comes from lead-based paints and lead based plumbing as well as exposure to lead in soil, air or water.
Lead exposure is far more harmful to children than adults, leading to damage to the brain and nervous system, slowed growth and development, learning and behavioral problems, and hearing and speech problems.
If your child has been exposed to lead, you can contact the personal injury lawyers at the Schmidt Salita Law Team for a free consultation with a lawyer regarding your legal rights.
