Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

The attorneys at Morgan & Morgan are actively investigating lawsuits on behalf of individuals who have been injured as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Exposure to carbon monoxide can result in serious side effects, and for some patients, these injuries may be permanent. When carbon monoxide poisoning is caused by the negligence of another individual or entity — such as a building owner, employer, or product manufacturer — our attorneys may be able to hold these parties legally responsible for medical bills and other damages resulting from the exposure.

Are you experiencing unexplained symptoms you believe stem from carbon monoxide exposure? If so, our attorneys would like to hear from you. If your injuries are being caused by carbon monoxide poisoning, we can help determine whether you can file a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation for your suffering.

What Will My Lawyer Do?

If our attorneys believe you are suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning, we will launch a full investigation to determine how and why you were exposed to the gas.

We can identify any parties that may be liable for your injuries, such as a property owner, maintenance company or even a product manufacturer, and will work with leading diagnostic experts who can help link your injuries to carbon monoxide poisoning.

If we cannot reach a settlement agreement with the party liable for your injuries, our attorneys are not afraid to go to trial to get you the compensation you deserve.

What Can I Recover in a Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Lawsuit?

Those who believe they were injured from carbon monoxide poisoning may be able to collect compensation for the following:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Physical impairments
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life

In addition, those who believe they lost a loved one to carbon monoxide poisoning may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to collect compensation for the following:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of companionship

How Was I Exposed to Carbon Monoxide?

Individuals can be exposed to carbon monoxide anywhere a combustion engine is found since these types of engines use gas, oil, kerosene and charcoal as fuel – all of which produce carbon monoxide when they are burned. Although combustion engines typically produce small amounts of carbon monoxide, if combustion (oxidation) of the gas is incomplete, or there is a leak in the system, dangerous levels of the gas can be released.

Combustion engines are used in the following appliances:

  • Vehicles
  • Boats
  • Generators
  • Room heaters
  • Hot water heaters
  • Furnaces
  • Charcoal grills
  • Cooking ranges
  • Fireplaces
  • Wood-burning stoves
  • Boilers

Since these engines are often used to power common household appliances, individuals may be exposed to the gas in their homes, workplaces, and at hotels.

Many cases of carbon monoxide poisoning go undiagnosed. Often, doctors struggle in diagnosing carbon monoxide poisoning, as they are trying to identify a cause of brain damage in patients who have not fallen, been in a car accident, or experienced any other traumatic event. The early symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning may also mimic those of the flu, and contrary to popular belief, exposure to the gas does not always cause a loss of consciousness. Patients who are suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning may experience confusion, speech and eyesight problems, and nausea, among other symptoms. Unfortunately, for some victims, their symptoms will not always resolve when they are removed from carbon monoxide exposure and they may be left with permanent neurological side effects.
