Laredo Carbon Monoxide Exposure Lawsuit Against Hotel
Every year, carbon monoxide poisoning causes the hospitalization of over 2,000 people in the United States alone. Carbon monoxide, also known as “the silent killer,” is a poisonous gas that is impossible for someone to detect without an adequate alarm system because carbon monoxide has no color, smell, or taste.
When you and your family stay at a hotel or motel in Laredo, Texas, you risk serious injury or death from carbon monoxide poisoning because Texas law does not require hotels and motels to install carbon monoxide alarms in your room. In the worst circumstances, your vacation could turn into a tragedy.

Texas law does not require hotels or motels in any city, including Laredo, Texas, to place carbon monoxide detectors in guest rooms, which means that you can never be sure that the carbon monoxide levels are under control. At Carabin Shaw, we know that this means that you can never know if you’re safe.
The way carbon monoxide is measured is by how many particles exist per million air particles. The highest acceptable level is 9 PPM (parts per million). Any PPM number well over this threshold could be a dangerous amount of carbon monoxide. At 400 PPM, your exposure becomes life-threatening within 3 hours. At 800 PPM, death, preceded by convulsions and nausea, can occur in as little as two hours.Next Steps: Contacting Laredo Accident Attorneys
