Carbon Monoxide: The Silent Killer

What is Carbon Monoxide Poisoning (otherwise known as CO Poisoning)?

Carbon monoxide is a silent killer. It’s odorless, colorless, and merciless. Carbon monoxide is extremely dangerous and can often go undetected. Carbon monoxide poisoning changes the lives of victims and their families forever. Exposure can cause permanent damage to the brain and other organs, and many times it results in death.

Have you Been Poisoned by Carbon Monoxide? Symptoms to Look for:

In extreme cases, victims of exposure to carbon monoxide poisoning may lose consciousness or die. However, in some cases, the symptoms are subtle and may take days, weeks, or even months to notice. Because the gas cannot be detected by sight or smell, carbon monoxide poisoning is often misdiagnosed as the flu, allergies, food poisoning, or psychiatric problems. Symptoms can include any of the following:

  • Cognitive problems (such as confusion, forgetfulness, difficulty with memory and mental focus)
  • Frequent headaches
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Change of mood or personality
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue

Why Do You Need an Experienced Law Firm for Your Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning Case?

You need Bailey & Partners, a reputable, knowledgeable law firm to help you prove you have been poisoned by carbon monoxide.  Bailey & Partners has represented many people in not only Los Angeles but across the United States who have been tragically poisoned by carbon monoxide. Carbon Monoxide is produced by the incomplete burning of fuels that contain carbon. The attorneys at Bailey & Partners understand the science behind carbon monoxide poisoning. When an exposed person inhales CO, it is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the red blood cells and interferes with oxygen transportation and delivery. Damage to the brain, heart, and other vital organs can result, causing serious injury or death.

If you or a loved one has been affected or killed by carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, contact the experienced Los Angeles-area personal injury lawyers at Bailey & Partners to pursue action against those responsible.
