Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Claims

Carbon monoxide is a dangerous and harmful gas, made more dangerous by the fact that you cannot detect it easily as it is invisible, odourless, and tasteless and probably only know that you have carbon monoxide poisoning when the symptoms start to appear.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Advice Update

Carbon monoxide poisoning is a serious and potentially fatal condition that can be caused by a number of things, including faulty gas appliances, car exhaust fumes, and fires. In the UK, there have been a number of high-profile cases of carbon monoxide poisoning in recent years, including the death of a family of four in 2017.

As a result of these cases, there has been a growing awareness of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning and the importance of taking steps to prevent it. In 2018, the UK government introduced new regulations requiring all gas appliances to be fitted with carbon monoxide alarms. These alarms are designed to detect the presence of carbon monoxide and sound an alarm, giving people time to evacuate the building before they are poisoned.

Despite these measures, there are still a number of carbon monoxide poisoning cases in the UK each year. If you think you or someone you know may have been exposed to carbon monoxide, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.

If you have been affected by carbon monoxide poisoning, you may be entitled to compensation. A personal injury lawyer can help you understand your legal rights and options and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Here are some tips for preventing carbon monoxide poisoning:

Have your gas appliances serviced and checked regularly by a qualified technician.

Fit carbon monoxide alarms in your home and workplace.

Never use a gas appliance in an enclosed space, such as a garage or conservatory.

Be aware of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, which include headaches, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. If you experience any of these symptoms, get fresh air immediately and call 999.

By following these tips, you can help to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning and keep yourself and your loved ones safe.

Compensation is calculated to cover a number of factors including:

  • the severity and impact of the injury
  • loss of earnings
  • costs of treatment
  • costs of equipment needed for day-to-day living
  • required aftercare or continuous care
  • house adjustments (such as ramps, modified rooms)
  • costs of re-training if a career change is unavoidable
