Santa Ana Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Lawyer

Sadly, most people have heard the tragic stories of carbon monoxide poisoning on the news. Carbon monoxide is an extremely toxic gas that can take the lives of an entire family. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries or other harm due to this toxic gas, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against them for compensation. Claiming the full amount of damages you deserve after carbon monoxide poisoning is not easy. These cases present many challenges and even the smallest error can place your damages in jeopardy. Our Santa Ana carbon monoxide poisoning lawyer can help you overcome these challenges and ensure mistakes are not made so you obtain the maximum compensation that is rightfully yours.

Carbon Monoxide is a Silent Killer

Carbon monoxide has rightfully earned its name as the silent killer. The gas is extremely toxic. It is also odorless, colorless, and tasteless, meaning that many people are not even aware that they are being exposed before they become extremely sick. Natural events such as volcanic eruptions and forest fires naturally create carbon monoxide. However, after these natural events, the levels of carbon monoxide are relatively low. Internal combustible engines such as those found in furnaces, appliances, and vehicles also create carbon monoxide and these cause the greatest harm.

It takes just a short amount of time for a person to experience symptoms after being exposed to carbon monoxide. Even being exposed for just a few minutes can be fatal.

Common Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Symptoms

Carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms often mimic the flu and so, people do not always see a doctor or receive the treatment they need right away. As such, it is critical that everyone understands the most common symptoms so they can avoid the most harmful consequences. Common symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include:

  • Upset stomach
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Chest pains
  • Headaches
  • Personality changes
  • Mood swings
  • Confusion
  • Clumsiness
  • Vision problems
  • Irregular heartbeat

After exhibiting any of the most common symptoms, it is of critical importance that you obtain medical treatment. When untreated, carbon monoxide poisoning can cause seizures, coma, and even death.

Who is Liable for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?

Another party may be liable for carbon monoxide poisoning, but it is not always easy to determine who is at fault. Determining liability will mostly depend on where exposure to the gas happened. If you were exposed at a hotel, motel, or AirBNB, the property owner is likely liable. If you were exposed in your own home, the manufacturer of a defective carbon monoxide detector may be liable. Our Santa Ana carbon monoxide poisoning attorney can determine who is at fault so you obtain the full settlement you deserve.
