Do I Have a Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Claim?
In El Paso we are seeing far too many carbon monoxide poisonings in recent years. Every resident of our city should be able to stay at a hotel, walk into a store, or sleep in their own home with a guarantee of safety from the odorless, tasteless “silent killer,” carbon monoxide.

Did the Exposure / Poisoning Occur During a Stay at a Hotel?
If yes, you may be eligible to make a claim. Hotels are responsible for providing their guests with safe accommodations. When they fail to do so—through a carbon monoxide leak in the furnace, oven, pool equipment, etc.—they could be held liable by an attorney for their negligence.
Did the Exposure / Poisoning Occur in a Public Space like a Grocery Store or Hair Salon?
If yes, you may be eligible to make a claim. Just as with hotels, public areas are required to provide a safe experience. The requirements to have fully functional carbon monoxide alarms that can detect a leak can be a bit more confusing. As a state, Texas only requires daycare centers and family homes to have carbon monoxide detectors. However, certain cities in Texas have more stringent requirements.Contacting carbon monoxide lawyers in El Paso is the best way to learn the specific requirements.
Did the Exposure / Poisoning Occur Within Your Own House?
If yes, you may be eligible to make a claim. Even though it is your home, the HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) contractor who installed the equipment is required to install all the equipment correctly, as well as the alarm that detects any leaks. Your home should be a safe and relaxing place, and the El Paso HVAC contractor should make sure that is your experience.
Did the Exposure / Poisoning Occur Within Your Apartment?
If yes, you may be eligible to make a claim. When you live in an apartment, the property owner is responsible for making sure the property is safe and free of carbon monoxide poisoning. Whether the leak occurs through faulty installation or failure to conduct proper maintenance, the property owner could potentially be held liable for any injuries to the residents.
These are only a few of the possibilities that could warrant filing a carbon monoxide poisoning claim. The best way to know if your specific circumstances may be eligible for recovering damages is to contact El Paso attorneys who have the requisite knowledge and experience to give you the answers you need.Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer Today | Free Case Review
