Poisoning Death Lawsuit Case Study
Carbon Monoxide Emission Results In Death — Confidential Settlement
Every year in the United States, more than 100 people die from carbon monoxide poisoning. Our wrongful death lawyers were able to obtain a substantial confidential settlement on behalf of the mother of a young woman whose wrongful death came as a result of lethal levels of carbon monoxide emitted by the family’s pool heating system. The U.S. Consumer Protection Agency has labeled carbon monoxide gas emission as the “invisible killer,” due to the fact that it is odorless and colorless. The 22-year old young woman was sleeping in a room above the gas-fired appliance, unaware that the unit was emitting lethal levels of carbon monoxide. The gas filled the bedroom due to a dislodged air intake filter. Over the span of eight hours, high levels of carbon monoxide resulted in unconsciousness, brain damage and death.
