Carbon monoxide (CO) is a gas. It is odorless and colorless. It is created and/or unleashed by burning kerosene, natural gas, paper, wood or gasoline. Poisoning from gaseous carbon monoxide is all too common in many Texas industries; in fact, good estimates show that every year, Carbon Monoxide gas kills at least 5,000 people in our United States by itself. It also seriously injures another estimated 10,000. Symptoms and signs of gas based poisoning from carbon monoxide include loss of consciousness, weakness, dizziness, headache, and even can include death if an individual is exposed to very high atmospheric levels of this gas. If you have suffered from CO poisoning, you should call Carabin Shaw’s veteran Texas Lawyers. They are ready and waiting for your call. They know how to deal with these cases and get you the best possible chance at the maximum recovery allowed by Texas law.

What actually is Poisoning by Carbon Monoxide Gas?

Carbon monoxide gas has no detectable taste or smell. It is therefore almost impossible to tell when someone is inhaling the gas. This particular compound competes with needed oxygen atoms for binding space or sites on blood hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the actual molecule in someone’s red blood cells which takes oxygen from a person’s lungs to the tissues in their body. Carbon monoxide is unfortunately a lot more efficient at using the spaces in the hemoglobin than necessary oxygen is. Therefore, if life giving oxygen cannot get into someone’s blood hemoglobin due to its usual space being occupied by CO, the body’s tissues will get starved of needed oxygen and thus die.

Carbon monoxide gas is usually found in the fumes created by combustion in a heating system, gas range, lantern, stove or automobile. The exhaust gasses from these particular sources can suffer build up in any semi or totally enclosed space. This is where both animals and people can get poisoned by inhaling the fumes. If you have suffered such poisoning, call the Carbon Monoxide Attorneys in San Antonio at Carabin Shaw as soon as you know about your injuries. The faster we can get started working on your claim, the better your chances are for a full and fair damages recovery.

Workplace Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide gas poisoning in people’s workplaces can actually be a severe problem because the gas itself is odorless and colorless, and all too often goes unnoticed and undetected until way too late. CO can enter the air through broken or faulty machines in many workplaces. Among the more common sources are:

  • Central heating systems
  • Small diesel or gas powered tools
  • Vehicles
  • Stoves
  • Generators
  • Water Heaters

Carbon monoxide gas has often been called a ‘silent killer.’ This is because, absent proper safety gear and equipment, the gas is virtually undetectable until poisoning symptoms appear. If and when they do, you need help. You need the experienced Carbon Monoxide Attorneys in San Antonio at Carabin Shaw to look at the facts of your specific case and help you figure out who is responsible and how to make them pay.
