Who Is Liable for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in Austin Tx?

When exposed to carbon monoxide for extended periods of time in Austin, the chemical gas replaces oxygen in the victim’s blood. This process of replacing oxygen inhibits the body’s ability to deliver oxygen to vital organs, such as the brain. This means that, over time, Austin victims who are exposed to this gas can suffer devastating injuries, or worse. If you or someone in your family has suffered from exposure to this dangerous gas, you may be unsure of who is liable for the damages you have incurred. Austin attorneys at Carabin Shaw will help you to identify the party at fault for your injuries, as well as fight for the compensation that you and your loved ones are owed.

Who Is Liable for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Identifying the at-fault party in a carbon monoxide poisoning case may seem daunting, but there are typically very few ways that such long-term exposure can occur. In Austin, most carbon monoxide poisoning cases are either related to defective products or a premises liability claim. So, in such cases, who might be liable for your damages?

Defective products

Households are home to various appliances that, if faulty, only partially burn the fuel they need to operate. This partial-burning creates carbon monoxide as a by-product. If a faulty appliance such as a stove, fireplace, space heater, or other indoor machine, is identified as the cause of your injuries then the manufacturer of that appliance may be held liable for your injuries.

However, the manufacturer alone may not be liable. The party that installed, marketed, or sold the appliance may also be liable. Working with Austin carbon monoxide poisoning lawyers at Carabin Shaw will ensure that the party at fault for your damages is identified and held accountable.

Premises Liability

Premises liability law can cover various types of personal injuries. However, in the case of carbon monoxide poisoning, it typically refers to a situation in which the owner of a property caused the victim’s exposure by not taking the necessary steps to prevent exposure. This is often the situation in claims that involve victims exposed to the gas on a rental property, marking the landowner as liable.

Regardless of how your exposure occurred, the expert attorneys at Carabin Shaw will help you to fight for the compensation you are owed. Our attorneys have a long history of success, as seen at Carabin Shaw’s client reviews.
