If you believe you or a loved one has suffered as a result of carbon monoxide exposure from visiting or working at the Avalon Park Walmart please contact us today. Our attorneys are investigating whether a class action lawsuit can be filed on your behalf for compensatory damages.
Orange County Fire Rescue evacuated the Walmart at 3:30am due to unsafe levels of the toxic gas. Measured 30 minutes later, carbon monoxide levels reached 400 parts-per million (35 parts-per million is considered “excessive”).
At the scene several others were treated for their exposure to the dangerous gas while some refused treatment. Individuals who were exposed to such hazardous gas levels can have negative health consequences, both temporary and permanent.
Carbon monoxide has no smell or taste and many are unaware of their dangerous exposure. An individual may have noticed a frontal headache within one or two hours of this level of exposure.
