Carbon Monoxide Poisoning – Accident Injury Lawyers – Arizona

CO2 Poisoning - Accident Injury Lawyers - Arizona Burg SimpsonCarbon monoxide is an invisible killer, taking the lives of 500 Americans every year while sending another 10,000 to the hospital. Most of these accidents take place in the winter and is the second most frequent source of fatal non-medicinal poisonings in the country.

Despite these sobering statistics, Arizona is one of only two states – along with Indiana – that has no legal requirement that compels builders to install carbon monoxide alarms in new residential and commercial buildings.

Carbon monoxide poisoning can be particularly deadly for anyone who is already asleep. It does not take long for carbon monoxide to do permanent brain damage before anyone realizes there is a problem. If you or a family member has been poisoned by carbon monoxide, call our Arizona office of Burg Simpson at 602-777-7000 and speak with a Phoenix accident lawyer. You can also fill out our Free Case Evaluation form HERE.

There are a few signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning you might want to look for, according to the Mayo Clinic, such as:

  • Dull headache
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Shortness of breath
  • Confusion
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of consciousness

If you or a loved one has become seriously ill from exposure to CO2 poisoning, reach out to a Phoenix personal injury attorney before it is too late by calling Burg Simpson Arizona at 602-777-7000.

In short, inhaling combustion fumes leads to carbon monoxide poisoning. After inhaling too much carbon monoxide, your body starts substituting the oxygen in your blood with carbon monoxide, which prevents oxygen from getting to your organs.

These fumes are typically generated by one of three sources:

  • A motor vehicle left running in a garage can pump carbon monoxide into the home.
  • Gas appliances, such as hot water heaters, that are improperly installed or maintained, can leak carbon monoxide.
  • Gas heating systems, such as furnaces, can also release carbon monoxide in the house. Surprisingly, newer homes are particularly susceptible because they are well-insulated and sealed better than older ones.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by carbon monoxide, speak with a Phoenix personal injury lawyer quickly by calling Burg Simpson Arizona at 602-777-7000.
