Fresno Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Lawyer

Many people have heard of cases of carbon monoxide poisoning on the news, and they are tragic. Sometimes, entire families are lost due to this toxic gas. Many people do not realize that when anyone is hurt by carbon monoxide poisoning, they can often file a civil claim to recover financial compensation. Claiming adequate compensation to fully cover the cost of injury is not always easy, though. A Fresno carbon monoxide poisoning lawyer can help you through the process so you claim the full settlement you deserve.

What is Carbon Monoxide?

Carbon monoxide is called a silent killer for a reason. It is a toxic gas that does not have any odor, color, or taste. Carbon monoxide is often created naturally, such as after a forest fire or a volcanic eruption. These levels of carbon monoxide are usually generally low and relatively harmless. Internal combustion engines also often produce carbon monoxide. When a person is exposed to these fumes even for just a short amount of time, they can suffer very serious symptoms.

What is Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?

Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs any time a person is exposed to the toxic gas for a prolonged period of time. At 100 ppm, a person will experience mild symptoms. When the levels of carbon monoxide reach 700 ppm, carbon monoxide poisoning can be fatal. The most common symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are as follows:

  • Weakness
  • Upset stomach
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Chest pains
  • Confusion
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Mood swings
  • Personality changes
  • Irregular heart beat
  • Clumsiness
  • Vision problems

Carbon monoxide poisoning requires immediate treatment. If victims do not receive treatment, they may start to have seizures or suffer from a coma. In the most tragic of cases, victims do not survive the poisoning.

Determining Liability for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

If you or someone you love suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning, it is important to determine if someone else was liable for your injuries and losses. Identifying the liable party will depend on how the carbon monoxide poisoning occurred. For example, if you stayed at a hotel that used defective carbon monoxide detectors, the owners of the establishment could be held liable.

On the other hand, maybe you suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning while in your own home because the detector you used was faulty. In this instance, the manufacturer of the defective detector could be held liable. It is not always easy to determine when carbon monoxide detectors are faulty, or when property owners acted negligently. A carbon monoxide poisoning lawyer in Fresno can determine who is at fault so you claim the full settlement you deserve.
