Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Houston Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Attorneys

Serving Victims & Their Loved Ones Nationwide

Each year, over 200 people are killed by carbon monoxide poisoning—also known as “the silent killer”—in the United States. Carbon monoxide is a clear and odorless gas produced by automobiles and other carbon-burning devices and tools.

In Texas alone, 390 people died from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning between 1994 and 2014, despite the fact that modern vehicles are equipped with occupant protection features to prevent this type of poisoning. If the damaging effects of carbon monoxide poisoning have harmed you or your loved one, you’ll need to understand the laws surrounding this type of accidental death and what you can do to seek justice. Our Houston carbon monoxide poisoning attorneys can help you navigate the legal system.

What Causes Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?

Given the prevalence of carbon monoxide injuries and deaths in the United States, it’s no surprise that carbon monoxide lawsuits are common. The key factor in passing judgment in these types of lawsuits is the source of the carbon monoxide.

Carbon monoxide poisoning can result from a variety of factors, including:

  • Faulty ventilation
  • Faulty workmanship
  • Improper maintenance

Automobile exhaust often causes carbon monoxide poisoning when it is released in an enclosed space. When a sensor in the car notes a certain concentration of carbon monoxide in the air, it shuts off the motor automatically. These types of preventative measures are called occupant safety protections, and when they don’t work as they should, the car manufacturer may be to blame.

Successful Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Lawsuits

Successful carbon monoxide poisoning lawsuits are fairly common. For instance, a woman in Casper, Wyoming was awarded $28.2 million after landlord negligence led to carbon monoxide poisoning. A similar case settled for $1.4 million in Chicago in 2008, and multiple plaintiffs sued the Hickory Hollow Cooperative apartment complex in Michigan for a series of carbon monoxide poisoning cases.

How to Protect Yourself from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

The best way to protect yourself from carbon monoxide injury or death is to follow relevant safety precautions. Make sure that all your home’s carbon monoxide detectors are in perfect working condition and become familiar with the parts of your home that can produce this harmful gas. You may also want to select a vehicle with automatic shut-off protections that will automatically stop running when high levels of carbon monoxide are detected.
