Wisconsin Lead Paint Poisoning Attorneys
Lead paint is a highly toxic and potentially harmful substance that was widely used until 1978. In the present day, lead paint is banned from use during construction. However, during construction, renovation, and demolition of pre-1978 structures, lead paint exposure is a distinct possibility. Due to these concerns, federal and state regulations have been created to safeguard workers and the public from lead paint contamination from these work sites. Construction companies are now required to handle work on sites that potentially contain lead paint with additional care and to dispose of waste according to certain specifications.
If you or someone you love was exposed to lead paint from a construction site, you may be entitled to compensation from the contractor or construction company. The Wisconsin lead paint poisoning attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. are committed to helping our clients to pursue justice when construction site negligence has caused them to be gravely sickened.

Consequences of Lead Paint Poisoning
Lead paint is toxic to all humans, but can be particularly damaging to children. Among adults, high levels of lead in the blood stream can cause serious complications such as muscle weakness, seizures, and even comas. For children who are exposed to lead paint, the effects can include:
- Impaired mental development
- Impaired growth
- Behavioral problems
- Impaired hearing
- Kidney damage
Construction companies have a responsibility to dispose of waste and handle lead paint in a way that protects everyone’s safety. Improper disposal of lead paint waste can cause lead to find its way into local soil and water supplies.
