Lead Poisoning Compensation Claims

Lead poisoning occurs when lead is inhaled or ingested and enters the bloodstream. As a result, vital enzymes in the nervous system and in the brain become inactivated. Lead is very toxic and when it is present in the bloodstream, it reduces the ability of the body to produce haemoglobin. When less heamoglobin is produced, less oxygen is carried to the main parts of the body.

People working in industries where they come into contact with lead on a regular basis are at the greatest risk of suffering lead poisoning. These industries include mining, plumbing, manufacturing, constructions and mechanics. If you have suffered as a result of lead poisoning, it is important to remember that you may be eligible to make a lead poisoning compensation claim.

Common Symptoms of Lead Poisoning

There are a number of symptoms of lead poisoning. Common symptoms include:

  • vomiting
  • stomachaches
  • reduced sensation
  • constipation or diarrhoea
  • muscle weakness
  • unexplained fatigue
  • headache
  • loss of appetite

As an employee, you have the right to work in a safe and risk free environment. It is the duty of your employer to ensure that you are protected from all risks of injuries, accidents, hazards and illnesses whilst at the workplace. If you work in an industry where lead is used frequently, your employer must ensure that you are provided with adequate training on how to handle lead safely. In addition, you must be provided with adequate personal protective equipment to prevent exposure.

If your employer was negligent in his duty of care and you suffered lead poisoning as a result, you will be eligible to make lead poisoning compensation claims.
