Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in Maryland

Laurel Personal Injury Lawyers Dedicated to Protecting Your Rights

Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that is difficult to detect. Unfortunately, it is also extremely dangerous. Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs all too frequently, resulting in lasting injuries and fatalities. If you have been injured or a loved one has died due to carbon monoxide poisoning, and this occurred due to someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to receive compensation for the losses you have suffered.

At McGowan & Cecil, LLC, our Laurel personal injury lawyers are experienced in carbon monoxide poisoning claims. With over 100 years of collective experience, we are proud of the favorable results we have obtained for past clients, and work tirelessly to get the same types of results for other clients whenever possible.

Common Exposures to Carbon Monoxide

Combustion engines are the most common sources of carbon monoxide, as this is the gas that is produced when oil, gasoline, charcoal, and kerosene are burned as fuel.

Common household and workplace sources include:

  • Furnaces and boilers
  • Gas and wood-burning fireplaces
  • Hot water heaters
  • Vehicles
  • Generators
  • Charcoal grills
  • Space heaters

In most cases, these types of engines are properly vented and carbon monoxide does not build up. However, when a vent is blocked or carbon monoxide is otherwise unable to escape, it can build to dangerous levels. Any unintended opening can also cause a leak, allowing carbon monoxide to be released into an area that it was not intended to go. Any individuals in the vicinity may be drastically affected, becoming incapacitated and injured, often fatally, as the gas overwhelms their bodies.

Our Experienced Attorneys Leave No Stone Unturned

In order to determine the cause of the carbon monoxide poisoning, as well as who is responsible for your injuries, our firm conducts extensive investigations. We go to great lengths for our clients, never leaving any stone unturned or detail unexamined.

It may be possible to have a number of liable parties such as:

  • Businesses
  • Property owners
  • Property maintenance companies
  • Product manufacturers

We do not back down from any of these or other opponents. Our firm is committed to standing up for the rights of our clients and seeing that the negligent parties are held responsible. Our personal injury attorneys in Laurel are experienced at litigating cases in court.
