CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING
Carbon Monoxide Lawsuit
Marc J. Bern & Partners and his professional team of lawyers investigate potential claims for individuals throughout the United States. All cases are reviewed on a contingency fee basis, which means there are no fees or expenses unless a recovery is obtained.
The inhalation of carbon monoxide gases can lead to serious injury or death because it can interfere with the body’s ability to supply oxygen to the brain and other vital organs. It is made more dangerous than many other forms of toxic gas because it cannot be easily detected by normal human senses. About 40,000 people every year are injured or killed in the U.S. alone due to CO poisoning.
Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning could include:
- Light Headedness
- Flu-Like Symptoms
Because these symptoms are often attributed to other things, exposure to carbon monoxide gases can be prolonged, leading to serious and potentially life-threatening injury.
CO leaks could occur as a result of several issues, including faulty appliances, unvented fuel-powered heaters and clogged chimneys and exhaust vents. Landlords, builders and contractors have been held legally responsible through carbon monoxide poisoning lawsuits when it can be proven that they knew, or had reason to know, that a carbon monoxide leak was likely to occur, or if they caused the leak through negligence.
