Types of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Claims in Austin
Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas, common in many households, that causes hundreds of deaths each year. As a material that has no odor or color, humans are incapable of detecting it by sense alone. It is for this reason that carbon monoxide is so dangerous.
Even in the cases where carbon monoxide poisoning is not fatal, it still causes incredible suffering for victims. If you or someone close to you has been exposed to a carbon monoxide leak then the Austin law firm of Carabin Shaw will help you to resolve your claim and other legal matters related to your exposure.

New apartment complexes and living spaces are being constructed at a breakneck pace. As homes are some of the most common sites of carbon monoxide poisoning, this presents numerous dangerous scenarios in which residents of the city may be exposed to a carbon monoxide leak.

Carbon monoxide forms as a result of partially or improperly burned fuel in various household appliances. While this means that carbon monoxide poisoning can occur anywhere that these appliances are, it also means that homes and workplaces are the most common sites of a leak. With so many appliances, however, there are various forms that a claim can take insofar as liability and fault.Faulty Products
If your carbon monoxide exposure was caused by a malfunctioning or faulty appliance, then the manufacturer may be at fault for your damages. Ensuring that a product is safe for household use is the responsibility of the manufacturer and, on occasion, the retailer.
If you live in a rental property, then liability for that faulty equipment may fall on the landlord.Lack of Detection
It is the legal duty of a landlord to ensure that each living space is equipped with a functioning carbon monoxide detector in Austin.
