Injury to Children

Children Injured by Toxic Environmental Exposure

Exposure to poisonous gases, particulate matter, or heavy metals emitted by manufacturers can cause serious harm to children. While many of these chemicals are more than capable of destroying the health of a full grown adult, children are particularly susceptible to these toxic substances and the health conditions they cause.

Since 1958, we have helped thousands of clients pursue the compensation they deserve for the injuries they have sustained at the hands of the negligence of others.

Children at Risk for Toxic Environmental Exposure

Children have a greater lung volume than adults compared to their body size, and more mucus membranes that are capable of absorbing the poison and toxins at much greater rates.

These pollutants and toxic substances can cause the following, and more:

  • Infections
  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Cancer
  • Overall reduced lung and brain functioning

Additionally, many of the exposure guidelines available for adults, which help define what is healthy and what is unhealthy in a population, do not apply to children. Most investigations into the damage done by these toxins are conducted on adult test subjects, not children. For this reason, not only is the data for what causes harm to a child limited, we know from experience and medical science that children are affected much more significantly than adults at much lower concentrations of a toxic substance. These cases are further complicated by the lack of environmental standards for children.

Developmental Injuries to Children due to Environmental Toxins

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 in the following ways:

  • Muscle control
  • Neurological development
  • Language skills
  • Mental capability

When this happens, a child may need additional care and testing, leading to decades of expensive health care and rehabilitation.
