Compensation For Victims Of Lead Paint Poisoning
Lead paint is usually only found in older homes because of the 1978 ban on the residential use of lead paint. It may be covered under layers of both lead-based and non-lead-based paint. As with other hazardous materials, it is not harmful if the surface was prepared before it was covered. If the layer(s) of lead paint were simply covered by additional layers of non-leaded paint, the older layers begin to chip and flake away over time.
