Carbon monoxide is a highly dangerous gas that can have serious health consequences on those who are exposed. Carbon monoxide is also so dangerous because it is odorless, colorless, and invisible to human perception

It is no coincidence that CO is called " The Silent Killer." By replacing oxygen in the body's red blood cells, CO silently, invisibly, and quickly deprives the body's systems of the oxygen it needs to function.

Important Questions

How can a person protect themselves from something they don't even know is there? Taking the necessary precautions in your own home is one thing, but how can you predict being exposed to dangerous levels of carbon monoxide while on another's property? Or how do you know that gas appliance you just bought doesn't have a defect that releases CO emissions? The unfortunate answer is you don't.

Not knowing about the levels of carbon monoxide does not mean you are powerless. By understanding the symptoms of CO poisoning, you can identify dangerous situations and remove yourself from them; and if your health was jeopardized by the negligence of another, you have the legal right to pursue civil action.

Recognizing the Symptoms of CO Poisoning

Knowing that something is dangerous is not enough. You must have the knowledge to avoid CO hazards when possible and to identify unsafe conditions when in strange locations. With this knowledge, you can not only help prevent serious injury / illness to yourself but also to others.

Individuals who are burdened with heart disease or other health conditions are usually the first to exhibit symptoms of CO poisoning. The elderly and young children are also more prone to early manifestation of CO poisoning.

If you observe any of the following symptoms in yourself, or others, get to fresh air as soon as possible:

  • Sudden fatigue
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Weakness
  • Vomiting
  • Confusion
  • Chest pain
  • Loss of consciousness

Being exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide can lead to loss of consciousness and death before any measures can be taken to remove oneself from the situation. People who are intoxicated or sleeping can die from CO poisoning without experiencing any symptoms and even before waking up if asleep.

There is only so much a person can do to protect themselves from unsafe conditions like carbon monoxide exposure. Ultimately, they are at the mercy of the attentiveness or negligence of others. Gas appliance manufacturers, maintenance technicians, and property owners all have a duty to ensure the safety of their products, the safety of their premises, and perform competent investigations and / or repairs. Should any of these parties be negligent in their duty, they could expose innocent people to a deadly gas. If you have been injured, work with our Campbell personal injury lawyer at once.
