Our Experienced Attorneys Fight For Children Who Were Poisoned by Lead

Let Us File Your Lawsuit!

If your child received a blood test showing lead in their blood, is showing symptoms of lead poisoning or you believe they may have consumed drinking water containing lead, then please complete the above questionnaire provided on this page. You may be entitled to compensation. Our attorneys will be quick to respond, and the consultation will be free and confidential.

Lead is a neurotoxin that can poison a child's brain if it is ingested. The effects of lead poisoning are drastic and permanent, and more severe the younger the child. Children that have been lead poisoned suffer from acute learning disabilities; diminished IQ scores; and struggle to stay on grade level as they progress through school. Lead poisoned children are far less likely to graduate from high school, go to college, or get a post-graduate degree than those who aren't. There is absolutely no cure for lead poisoning.

Our lawyers have recovered more than one hundred million dollars on behalf of lead poisoned children for their diminished earning capacities as adults; the shame and embarrassment of being left-back, picked on and made to feel less than, and for medical monitoring.

If the water source for drinking water is corrosive, the metal pipes carrying the water may corrode and leach copper and lead into the water supply.  Unfortunately in Jackson, Mississippi, the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality reported in June 2015 that in 22% of the homes, the drinking water in Jackson contained enough lead that it exceeded the dangerous level of 15 parts per billion. 

Corrosive Water Source
Lead Poisoning

In August 2014, the city of Jackson, Mississippi switched its drinking water from the Maddox Road Well system to surface water, which includes nearby rivers, lakes and streams. As a result, many children were exposed to lead poisoning by drinking contaminated water, bathing in contaminated water and eating food cooked with contaminated water.

On April 8th, 2021, Jackson’s WAPT News reported that a letter had recently surfaced, written over a year ago by the Environmental Protection Agency to Jackson mayor, Chokwe Antar Lumumba, indicating that Jackson’s drinking water was an imminent and substantial danger to the public after completing an inspection in February 2020 at two of Jackson’s water treatment plants.

The EPA also issued an emergency administrative order against the city of Jackson after it had identified a potential for E. coli, human or animal waste and other bacteria in the city’s drinking water and threatened to fine the city $24,000 per day if it failed to correct serious violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act. The mayor’s office said that concerns outlined in the EPA’s order largely stemmed from administrative process gaps and that the public works department has worked hard to address the items within the initial order and is currently working with the EPA to address items within a comprehensive equipment repair plan.

There is no safe level for lead. Once in a child’s bloodstream, lead’s damage is irreversible, often causing brain damage and delaying cognitive development.
