Maryland and Washington, D.C. Carbon Monoxide Injury Attorneys
Carbon monoxide poisoning is the result of a leak of the harmful gas in an unvented area. The leak often goes undetected since the fumes are odorless. Symptoms of exposure are swift and may include the individual becoming unconscious. Death is a real possibility. Receiving immediate medical attention is critical to recovery.
A carbon monoxide detector should be installed in every home in order to provide the safest environment possible. For good measure, have your appliances, ventilation systems, and motor vehicle inspected for any dangers or defects. Placing detectors in critical areas of your home should be sufficient to alert you to danger. Although, those devices can malfunction, as well.
Carbon monoxide poisoning is not necessarily your fault. You do not have control over what happens on property owned by another person. Manufacturers sometimes develop faulty products that malfunction and pose a threat to your life. If you believe that another party is responsible for your medical injuries, then you may have a claim for personal injury compensation. At Henderson Law, our team of attorneys have collectively served families in Maryland and Washington, D.C. for decades.

Common Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
The undetectable nature of carbon monoxide means that a person can fall ill from exposure without warning. The most common expression of illness resembles the flu. A visit to the emergency room is often required to restore the afflicted individual. However, exposure to high levels of carbon monoxide for longer periods of time may experience:
- Vomiting violently
- Mental incapacity
- Falling unconscious
Any symptoms experienced by individuals exposed to carbon monoxide should compel that person to find the nearest hospital. His or her life depends on it. Suffering carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of poorly maintained property or appliances is preventable and unnecessary. If someone else was at fault for your medical injuries and loss of normal faculties, speak with a carbon monoxide attorney licensed to practice in your state of residence.
