What is Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?

Carbon monoxide is a gas which is generated by various products and engines which burn fuel containing carbon. It results from the organic matter used as fuel incompletely combusting.

Normally, carbon based fuel oxidizes into carbon dioxide (co2). If the oxygen supply is insufficient to create complete oxidation of the fuel, the residual carbon is emitted into the atmosphere as carbon monoxide (co). If this particular gas, co, increases to a dangerous level inside a fully or partially enclosed space, the gas may then pose a life-threatening risk to animals and humans.

Due to carbon monoxide having no color, odor or other smell, it can be difficult to notice, identify and detect and thus often exposes people and animals for a lengthy time period. This can be especially possible if someone is asleep or doesn’t leave am area after the symptoms of poisoning by carbon monoxide become noticeable, such as:

  • Flu like symptoms
  • Light headedness
  • Nausea
  • Headaches

If you are suffering from these symptoms, and the doctors you have seen cannot figure out what is wrong, call one of our Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Attorneys in San Antonio today. We have already established relationships with the medical professionals who know what to look for and to check for CO poisoning. We can help if you let us.

Injury Risks from Carbon Monoxide

In a great many cases, leaks of carbon monoxide result from another person or entity’s negligence, or when a property owner fails to take the right, or enough, steps to avoid releasing gaseous carbon monoxide into enclosed spaces.

Even quite short-term exposure to this dangerous gas frequently causes acute poisoning by carbon monoxide, possibly resulting in life long and severe injury, such as:

  • Chronic Migraines, Vision Loss or Hearing Loss
  • Personality Changes and Depression
  • Cardiac Arrest or Hear Attack
  • Respiratory Failure
  • Brain Damage

Exposure to gaseous carbon monoxide sometimes results in lost consciousness. Treatment sometimes requires hyperbaric chambers or pure oxygen.

In particularly severe cases, people may actually die. Those who suffer wrongful death from poisoning by carbon monoxide frequently leave families with unanswered questions about how to avoid such exposure.
