How Does Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Happen? Laredo Tx Lawyers

If you or a loved one has suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning, you have likely been blindsided and are experiencing intense anxiety while suffering from physical and mental harm. Laredo carbon monoxide poisoning attorneys recognize how alarming such circumstances can be. As a toxic gas with no odor or color, identifying carbon monoxide poisoning often comes with having already experienced prolonged exposure. Liability for such injuries can fall on many potential individuals or organizations, depending on where and how the leak began. Working with established attorneys, like those at Carabin Shaw, guarantees that your carbon monoxide poisoning claim will be as strong as it can be, and result in you obtaining your maximum possible settlement.

Carbon monoxide poisoning in Laredo Tx is among the most dangerous personal injuries due to its subtlety. Without the ability to detect the gas with human senses, a single malfunctioning carbon monoxide detector can result in terrible damages to a victim’s body and brain. Because of the damage that this gas can cause to various parts of the body, medical bills are often high and the harm results in fewer work hours or an impacted quality of life. Expert lawyers at Carabin Shaw have a combined 200 years of experience serving Laredo and other Texas communities and over $1 billion recovered for clients since the creation of the law firm. No firm will represent you better than Carabin Shaw.

How Does Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Happen

Carbon monoxide is the result of incomplete combustion, and can leak from various machinery that occupies many of the homes in Laredo, whether they be apartments or houses. Part of the serious danger that carbon monoxide presents is due to the fact that so many necessary or common devices can act as the source for this incredible toxic gas.

Homes devices that can cause a carbon monoxide leak include:

  • Clothes dryers
  • Water heaters
  • Fireplaces, whether gas or wood burning
  • Boilers or furnaces
  • Stoves and ovens that run on gas
  • Motor vehicles
  • Lawn equipment
  • Power tools

And many other daily devices. Liability can fall on any manufacturers of such devices, on the manufacturers of the carbon monoxide detector in your home or, in the cases of apartment complexes, on the landlord for failure to maintain those devices. Hiring Laredo injury attorneys at Carabin Shaw will help you identify liable parties so that you know who’s negligence resulted in your injuries.

Carbon monoxide leaks can also be detected by its associated symptoms. While generally flu-like, carbon monoxide is characterized by a lessening of its symptoms while you are away from your home. The time away allows the gas to work its way out of your system in a way that the flu does not. Also, if all members of your household are afflicted at the same time then it is likely to be a carbon monoxide leak.

Those symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Dizziness
  • Blurry vision
  • Fainting

And other symptoms. Carbon monoxide can become very serious very quickly and, in an effort to help you pursue your claim as quickly as possible, experts at Carabin Shaw offer free initial consultation and case review. Our lawyers also employ a contingent-fee agreement, meaning that you don’t pay anything for their guidance until your case has been won.
