Can I Sue for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?

Can I Sue for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?

Yes, if you or someone you love has suffered carbon monoxide poisoning, it is crucial you speak with an experienced injury lawyer right away.

At Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP, our lawyers have helped a countless number of clients file personal injury lawsuits against negligent parties.

If the incident occurred as a result of another person or property owner’s negligence, the liable individual or entity could be held responsible for the following damages you may have suffered as a result:

  • Medical expenses
  • Physical pain
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost wages as a result of an inability to work

What Do I Do if I Am Experiencing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Symptoms?

If you are suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms, act quick and follow these steps:

  • Get fresh air
  • Open the doors
  • Open the windows
  • Shut off all gas appliances (stove tops, HVAC system, water heaters, dryer, etc.)
  • Receive medical attention right away (call 911 in case of emergency)
  • Seek experienced legal representation to hold negligent party responsible

Be sure to explain your symptoms clearly to the medical staff and ask to have a blood and breath test done. Keep all medical documents, and share them with your attorney should you choose to hire one. Additionally, if this occurred in your home, it is wise to hire a specialist engineer to inspect all appliances. Be sure to retain documentation from the inspection, too, in case your lawyer asks to use them for your personal injury case.
