Carbon monoxide poisoning is a serious issue in Austin, and it can cause serious injuries to residents of the city. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is produced by combustion processes such as cooking or heating. When you inhale this gas, it replaces oxygen in your bloodstream, which can lead to death if you are exposed for long periods of time.
The most common cause of carbon monoxide poisoning in Austin is from faulty heating units that do not vent properly or from improperly maintained furnaces. Other sources of CO include defective generators and appliances like stoves and hot water heaters.
If you suspect that you have suffered from CO poisoning due to the negligence of a landlord, business owner, or product maker, contact our firm of Texas carbon monoxide poisoning attorneys immediately to book a free case review.How a Personal Injury Lawyer in Austin Can Help You Deal with a Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Case Help Get the Treatment You Need
In addition to helping with your medical bills and getting the proper treatment for your injuries, a legal professional can also help with other matters such as:
- Loan you money for medical costs
- Settle any outstanding accounts with vendors who provided services during the period of time when your home was unsafe to occupy
- Use their network of medical professionals to help you recover physically
All tenants living on a landlord's property are subject to their responsibility to maintain their safety. This implies that routine inspections should be performed on any potential gas leaks and combustion processes in the home or unit. In order to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, furnaces, water heaters, chimneys, fireplaces, and all gas appliances should all be properly maintained to avoid intoxication.
An attorney can hire the experts necessary to investigate when and how you were poisoned.Hold the Manufacturer Accountable
