· We represented a Texas woman who stayed in a hotel while on
business. During the night her carbon monoxide detector went
off and she was taken to the emergency room. Unfortunately,
the damage was done and the woman suffered brain damage. We
filed a lawsuit and, on the eve of trial, the hotel settled the case
for a substantial sum of money, which provided the means for the client
to get back on her feet;
· In another case, our client passed out from carbon monoxide exposure
in a rented apartment. A faulty hot water heater was the
culprit. The client suffered a brain injury and we were
forced to take the matter to trial. The client now dedicates
herself to helping other victims of carbon monoxide share their
experiences and get the tools necessary to help them through it.

monoxide poisoning occurs after inhaling carbon monoxide gas.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is produced by combustion of natural gas, wood,
and other fuels. Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless and tasteless,
making it difficult for people to detect.
Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas and the most common type of fatal
poisoning. Symptoms of mild poisoning include headaches,
dizziness, and flu-like symtoms. Large or lengthy exposure to
carbon monoxide can lead to organ damage, brain injury and even death.
Following CO poisoning, the effects can last days, weeks, months or, in
some cases, permanently.
Common sources of CO include house fires, furnaces or heaters,
wood-burning stoves, motor vehicle exhaust, and propane-fueled
equipment such as portable camping stoves, forklifts, generators, and
gasoline-powered tools such as high-pressure washers, concrete cutting
saws, power trowels, floor buffers, and welders. Simply put,
if you see a flame or exhaust, carbon monoxide is being produced.
The earliest symptoms, especially in low level exposures, are often
confused with other illnesses, flu, depression, fatigue, chest pain and
headaches. This often makes the diagnosis of carbon monoxide poisoning
difficult. If suspected, the diagnosis can be confirmed by measurement
of blood carboxyhemoglobin. However, carbon monoxide leaves
the body quicky and must be measured quickly.
Common problems encountered are difficulty with memory, irritability,
gait disturbance, speech disturbances, organization, fatigue, vision
problems and depression. These symptoms may may occur weeks and months
after the exposure. One of the major concerns following CO poisoning is
brain injury that may occur days or even weeks after an acute

remains a vital public health issue. Many states
and local governments are requiring installation of carbon monoxide
detectors. Carbon monoxide alarms should be installed in homes around
heaters and other equipment. If a level of approximately 70 p.p.m. of
carbon monoxide is detected and the device sounds an alarm.
If the alarm goes off, go outdoors immediately. We recommend
that each home have at least one carbon monoxide detector.
