Lead Paint Poisoning
No lead paint poisoning case should be overlooked
Lead-paint exposure primarily comes from paint used in housing. Children are at a greater risk of lead poisoning because their bodies absorb up to 50 percent of the lead they ingest, while adults' bodies absorb only 10 percent. Children who ingest lead paint chips or dust may face serious developmental delays. Lead-paint poisoning can turn a Maine resident's life upside-down. But your rights are firmly rooted in the law. Turn to an experienced attorney for guidance.

The landlord, employer or contractor may have negligently allowed the exposure through inadequate warning or improper maintenance and disposal practices.
Any of the following conditions caused by landlord, employer, contractor or someone else's negligence may cause lead paint dust and chips to get into a living space:
