What exactly is the problem?

Gaseous Carbon monoxide (frequently referred to as CO) is an odorless, colorless gas produced when something or someone burns any material which contains carbon. Poisoning by carbon monoxide frequently causes death and/or brain damage. You can’t taste it, smell it or see it, but gaseous carbon monoxide can, and will, kill people.

Gas CO emissions get produced any time a fuel such as charcoal, wood, kerosene or gas gets burned. The actual amount of CO gas which is produced while running appliances which burn the fuel in question is generally not in any way harmful. The hazards present only become dangerous if these appliances are not functioning correctly, are damaged or get used improperly. If you have any idea that you may have been poisoned by CO, or have the symptoms detailed here, call a San Antonio Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Lawyers at Carabin Shaw. We have litigated many of these cases and can be of real help to you when you suffer this injury.

In a number of cases, CO gas leaks may actually have been the result of negligence by someone else or another legal entity, like:

  • Maintenance Companies or other entities or people responsible for repairs and upkeep
  • Builders
  • Appliance Manufacturers
  • Property owners and/or landlords depending on the exact legal factors

The earliest common poisoning symptoms, particularly in exposures to low gas levels, are frequently mistaken for other kinds of illness – the headaches, chest pain, fatigue, depression and general flu like symptoms. This frequently makes actually diagnosing carbon monoxide gas poisoning quite difficult. If such gas poisoning is actually suspected, an exact diagnosis can be quickly confirmed by measuring a medical reading called the “blood carboxyhemoglobin.” However, gaseous carbon monoxide poison exits the human body quite quickly and the medical measurements must happen quickly.

Common medical problems which people can encounter include depression, vision problems, fatigue, speech disturbances, gait, or walking, disturbances, irritability and difficulty with memory. These kinds of symptoms may actually occur even weeks or months have passed since the initial exposure to the poison gas. Among the major issues to be concerned with following any CO poisoning is the irreversible brain injuries which may appear after days or even weeks have passed since a very acute poisoning. If you have any suspicions that you may have CO poisoning, call one of Carabin Shaw’s Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Attorneys in San Antonio after you seek immediate medical attention. We can go after any legally available compensation for you and may be able to help you, if needed, get the expert medical help you need to recover from something like CO poisoning.
