Lead experts or lead poisoning expert witnesses may be called upon for a case to offer an expert opinion regarding a possible lead exposure. Lead is a harmful chemical capable of causing health problems. Lead expert consulting may provide valuable information on how toxic exposures can occur and who or what may be responsible for the situation in question.
Lead expert witnesses often have backgrounds regulating industrial hygiene and enforcing proper occupational and environmental health regulations for industrial fields, as well as other types of workplace environments. Medical experts with specialty in occupational and environmental medicine can also provide insight on lead exposure for ligation. Lead used as an ingredient in certain types of paint, for instance, would be in violation of building code compliance and create an environment of toxic exposure for occupants of the area. Building inspections are therefore an important factor in the prevention of toxic exposure from lead, asbestos, molds and fungus, and other hazardous elements found within various structures. In addition to building inspections, lead expert witnesses may be asked to evaluate the results of a paint inspection if lead is found in the material.
In many industrial fields, lead is sometimes found in the parts of certain machinery, in which case the proper safety equipment must be provided for those in the workplace environment, as a failure to do so can lead to violations in worker safety and grounds for potential lawsuits.
