Helping Families of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Victims
Are you a surviving spouse, relative, or friend of someone whose life was tragically lost due to negligent handling of carbon monoxide?
At the nationwide personal injury law firm of Owen, Patterson & Owen, we work tirelessly to hold manufacturers, corporations and other negligent parties accountable for injuries, illnesses and wrongful death caused by carbon monoxide poisoning. We aggressively litigate carbon monoxide poisoning claims.
What is carbon monoxide poisoning? How can it affect someone?
Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs when a person is exposed to CO emissions. Symptoms include dizziness, headaches, mild nausea and shortness of breath. While these symptoms can be confused with the flu or other illnesses, chronic carbon monoxide exposure can lead to long-term cognitive/memory impairment, sensory/motor disorders and other neurological defects.
What we do
Our skilled personal injury lawyers aggressively pursue lawsuits against landlords, management companies and other potential defendants when a building’s defective design leads to exhaust problems and carbon monoxide poisoning.
We have also been successful in lawsuits brought against residential and commercial builders, building owners and operators whose structures contained malfunctioning wall heaters that emitted carbon monoxide. Heaters that have been repaired improperly can also release this deadly poisonous gas. You should also notify us if a defective or malfunctioning carbon monoxide detector in a home, townhome, condominium or vacation property has led to a fatal accident.
Owen, Patterson & Owen attorneys also know that recreational vehicles such as campers, motor homes and trailers can be sources of carbon monoxide leaks. So can tent and camping accessories such as lanterns, stoves and propane heaters.
Motorized boats and boating equipment can also cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Blower systems for motors can malfunction. Motors may lack warning instructions on protections to observe while at idling speeds.
You need to speak with us if a boating excursion on one of the following major waterways across the United States ended in tragedy due to carbon monoxide poisoning: Lakes Castaic and Pyramid, Ventura Harbor & Marina Del Rey, San Pedro, Redondo, Lake Havasu, Lake Mead or the Colorado River.
