A possibly fatal type of bacteria lives without detection in your water moving through plumbing, hot tubs and showers. It can cause a kind of pneumonia which has a death rate of a much as 50 percent of those infected. It can sound like a terrible nightmare, but many thousands of Americans, Legionnaires’ disease can be devastating reality.

But this does not have to happen to people like you. This particular illness which can be a threat to your life is actually preventable. Property owners basically chose to expose people like you to this disease. With Carabin Shaw’s help, you have choices of your own. You decide whether you will stand up and get what you really deserve and hold these kinds of property owners accountable for their carelessness and punish them for what they have done to people like you? And don’t you want experienced Legionnaires’ disease lawyers in Texas like Carabin Shaw on your side when you do?

What actually is Legionnaires’ disease?

When you get exposed to this type of bacteria, Legionella, a type that thrives what it lives in warm humid water, you may well develop a very severe type of “atypical pneumonia.” The problem is that you don’t even have to actually drink the contaminated water to risk getting this serious and severe lung infection. If you just inhale tiny droplets of the bacteria when they are airborne this may well actually be sufficient to cause an infection. This especially true if you are a member of one of the groups at higher risk for the disease – if, for example, you have a history of using tobacco, have a chronic lung disease, have a compromised immune system, or are simply over age 50.

It is actually rare for many cases of Legionnaires’ disease to happen in a home water system. These specific bacteria multiply, and thrive, far more often in more complicated, usually larger water systems like those used in large buildings and other kinds of big structures. When you get infected by Legionella, you really need help from a Texas Legionnaire’s disease lawyer like those at Carabin Shaw. We understand the details of this serious disease and how and where you usually get it.

Legionella bacteria are most often found in places like:
  • The kind of Cooling towers found in commercial air conditioners
  • Mist sprayers like those you find the produce section of your grocery store
  • Large, complicated water delivery systems like those in nursing homes, hospitals and hotels
  • Humidifiers
  • Showers and faucets
  • Decorative fountains
  • Swimming Pools
  • Whirlpools spas, Jacuzzis and hot tubs, especially at hotels and on cruise ships

Even though the Legionella bacteria does grow naturally in potting soil, ponds and creeks, most actual cases of Legionnaires’ disease originate from the bacteria found inside, in plumbing and large water systems.

Symptoms if you may have Legionnaires’ Disease

If you develop Legionnaires’ disease, you usually will feel sick, generally with flu-like symptoms, Within your first two to 10 days after you are exposed, The Mayo Clinic has reported that your Early symptoms of Legionnaires’ disease may well include:

  • Muscle Pain
  • High Fever of up to 104 degrees
  • Headaches and
  • Chills

Within two or three more days, more symptoms may well appear, which may include:

  • Shortness of Breath
  • Vomiting, diarrhea and/or Nausea
  • Coughing up blood or mucus
  • Mental Confusion
  • Chest pain

Legionnaires’ disease has not been found to be contagious “person to person.” You shouldn’t get it from only being in contact with someone who is sick with it. But it is, however, a very preventable disease. When property manager, maintainers and/or owners don’t do what they must to prevent it, many thousands of people can get sick – and thousands of them can die.
