Why You Need an Austin Carbon Monoxide Lawyer

Austin, Texas, one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States, is home to many eclectic tourist attractions. The lakes and rivers provide outdoor entertainment, and the city is home to museums and music venues. With so much to see and experience, it is only natural that people flock to the city. Many people enjoy stays in hotels and motels in the area, but there is a chance you may be exposing your family to harm.

An ever-growing population means construction, new maintenance companies that may fail to install proper safety precautions in apartments, hotels, motels, and homes, and appliances that may be faulty. Read below to see why you need an Austin carbon monoxide lawyer.

Dangers of Carbon Monoxide

Carbon monoxide is a dangerous gas that is mostly odorless and colorless. Any time we burn fuel, carbon dioxide is released into the air, putting us at risk of many medical problems, and, with enough exposure, death. People can die in their sleep from carbon monoxide poisoning. In a highly-populated and ever-growing city like Austin, Texas, citizens and visitors are in danger of overexposure to carbon monoxide from exposure through automobile exhaust. Along with automobile exhaust, the gas is also a result from electric heaters, fireplaces and chimneys, water heaters, gas powered generators, coal burning grills, and gas burning furnaces. Unless a carbon monoxide detector or alarm is installed, there is no way to know if you and your family are being exposed to the harmful gas.

In the state of Texas, hotels and motels are not required by law to put carbon monoxide alarms in their rooms and suites. This means you and your family may be at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning.

Have you or a loved one suffered dizziness, headaches, chest pain, fatigue, or other general flu-like symptoms while staying in at hotel or motel in Austin, Texas? Have you lost a loved one to what you believe is carbon monoxide poisoning ? This may be why you need an Austin Carbon Monoxide Lawyer.

According to the CDC, more than 400 Americans die from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning yearly. Unintentional monoxide poisoning means that the proper safety precautions, such as the installation of a carbon monoxide detector or alarm, were not taken and victims were not poisoned on purpose but were poisoned nonetheless. However, just because a death or illness is unintentional does not mean it does not have consequences. Many unintentional deaths or injuries could have and should have been prevented.
