Pregnant women and children are particularly at risk for developmental injuries caused by environmental contaminants. Environmental toxins influence brain and body development before, during, and after birth. Pollution, for example, can severely impact a child’s muscle control, neurological development, language skills and mental capability. When this happens, a child may need additional care and testing, leading to decades of expensive health care and rehabilitation.
It is extremely important to work with an experienced legal team who clearly understands the interplay between the environment and the developmental delays it may cause in children.
