If you or a loved one have been injured after exposure to carbon monoxide, call our experienced carbon monoxide poisoning lawyer at Baumgartner Law Firm. Call 281-587-1111!
How do you get carbon monoxide poisoning?
Carbon monoxide can come from equipment such as forklifts, generators, portable heaters, gas fireplaces, furnaces, and even stoves. Most carbon monoxide comes from engines primarily.
Carbon monoxide poisoning can happen at work if your employer does not have proper ventilation in an apartment where the landlord did not take appropriate steps to prevent carbon monoxide leaks. If you suspect you have been poisoned by carbon monoxide, contact an experienced attorney about your rights and options.
Fuel Burning Machines Cause Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) indicates that carbon monoxide gas comes from fuel-burning equipment and appliances. Link exposure to carbon monoxide can lead to permanent damage, such as brain damage. Severe cases can result in a wrongful death case.
According to the CDC, approximately 50,000 people seek medical treatment every year for carbon monoxide poisoning. CDC reports that over 400 people die every year from carbon monoxide exposure.
What causes carbon monoxide poisoning?
Every business and almost every residence has some level of carbon monoxide simply because of heating and cooling or equipment used. Carbon monoxide injuries are much more common than most people would believe.
Investigation of carbon monoxide poisoning includes the identity of the source of the carbon monoxide which caused the damage. Getting help from a carbon monoxide poisoning attorney as early as possible is always recommended. Investigations of carbon monoxide poisoning lawsuits centered around the following conditions:
Cars exhaust is a common cause of carbon monoxide poisoning, mainly when the exhaust is in a confined space. A keyless-enabled vehicle is frequently left running only because the driver did not actually turn the car off by pushing the off button. He mistakenly thought that the vehicle was off while he continued to run, pouring carbon monoxide into the area.
Automobile manufacturers have recently incorporated automatic shut-off when a certain level of carbon monoxide is detected in the air. If a car is equipped with such a device and it did not work correctly or should have been equipped with such equipment, the manufacturer may be liable for the defects.
How Baumgartner Law Firm Can Help With Your Carbon Monoxide Claim
Carbon monoxide, often referred to as the “silent killer,” is an invisible, tasteless, and odorless gas that poses severe health risks, including fatal consequences, without any warning signs through sensory detection. Poisoning symptoms may surface only after significant exposure, often too late for an easy remedy.
When visiting another’s property, it is expected to be free from such harmful gases. Regrettably, cases of carbon monoxide exposure are not rare and can lead to legal action for unsafe premises.
