Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Although electrically powered appliances are becoming increasingly popular, there are still a substantial number of gas fueled hot water heaters, stoves, and space heaters. The gas, or carbon monoxide, used in residential appliances can be hazardous if there is a leak. Homeowners are responsible for making sure that all gas lines are properly maintained and up to code.

If you or someone you know has suffered injury because of CO2 poisoning, you may be eligible to receive compensation. Contact the Cincinnati carbon monoxide poisoning attorneys of Stepleton Dugan, LLC to discuss your legal options. Call 513-321-7733 today to schedule a free case evaluation.

Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide is frequently referred to as the “silent killer” because it is colorless and odorless and prolonged exposure can cause asphyxiation. In order to help protect you and your family, keep in mind the following symptoms of CO2 exposure:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Fainting
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Hallucinations
  • Loss of memory
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, exit your home immediately and call the fire department. A professional will come to your residence and check for CO2. If found, the leak should be fixed and your home should “air out” before you re-enter.
