Handling Injury Cases Resulting from Exposure to Lead Paint Since 1981
When absorbed into the body, lead paint can cause life-altering injuries, particularly for young children. While risk of lead paint exposure has significantly dropped since its ban in 1978, many low-income housing projects, older apartment buildings, day care centers, schools and other facilities still contain risks that can put children and adults at risk.
At The Orlow Firm, we represent victims of lead poisoning in Brooklyn and throughout Kings County and surrounding areas. Our Brooklyn lead poisoning lawyers advocate for compensation and justice.

- Abdominal pain
- Pain and tingling in the extremities
- Memory loss
- Loss of appetite
- Kidney failure
- Learning disabilities in children
- Child behavior problems
- Other symptoms
