Carbon monoxide (CO) is frequently referred to as “the Silent Killer” because it is a colorless, odorless, and poisonous gas. Carbon monoxide reduces the amount of oxygen delivered to the body’s vital organs such as the heart or the brain. When exposed to large enough amounts of CO it can cause you to suffocate or lose consciousness within minutes.

Compensation for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Victims

Depending on the specifics of the poisoning, accident victims may be entitled to one or more of the following types of damages:

  • Medical Costs:  Victims may seek compensation for medical bills, as well as any future medical expenses associated with the injury.
  • Lost Wages:  If you’re hospitalized after your accident, there’s a good chance you’ll miss work while you recuperate. This may be recouped in your settlement.
  • Pain and Suffering:  Long after the physical wounds heal, the emotional pain of an accident can linger. This pain and suffering may be included in your settlement.
  • Wrongful Death:  If your loved one was killed, you’re probably grief-stricken and wondering how you’ll shoulder medical bills, funeral costs – not to mention the loss of future income for your family. The emotional loss cannot be understated, either. The loss of companionship and affection is irreplaceable. The Virginia wrongful death act allows certain family members to bring a claim for the losses they have suffered from the death of a loved one.

Carbon monoxide poisoning is often due to:

  • Faulty equipment/appliances
  • Improper use or handling of equipment/appliances
  • Lack of or improper venting
  • Failure to comply with carbon monoxide detector regulations

Negligent parties most often include: building owners, employers, and product manufacturers.
