Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Claims
According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA), carbon monoxide poisoning kills around 40 people in the UK every year. Furthermore, the Department of Health say that 4,000 people are treated for carbon monoxide poisoning every year in England. In short, Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Claims are there because they are necessary.
If you or a loved one has been poisoned by carbon monoxide due to an accident, contact The Compensation Experts. Our knowledgeable advisors can determine whether you can claim. They can then put you in touch with one of a team of personal injury solicitors who will be able to help you with your claim.
What is a Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Claim?
Carbon monoxide is an odourless, tasteless by-product of the burning of fossil fuels. These include oil, petroleum, wood, and natural gas. It is found in industrial and automotive settings. It can also happen at home due to a defective boiler. Carbon monoxide stops red blood cells carrying oxygen around the body, which then leads to tissues and cells dying.
As well as being potentially lethal, side effects of carbon monoxide poisoning can include:
- Dizziness and confusion
- A headache and muscular aches, as if suffering from flu
- Difficulty breathing
- Acidosis (excessively high blood acidity)
Carbon monoxide poisoning compensation claims can be made after being poisoned at home, work, or while on holiday. For instance:
- A domestic boiler which has been incorrectly fitted
- A holiday cottage with a faulty boiler and no carbon monoxide alarm
- In garages or places where car engines are running, with inadequate ventilation
- Anywhere with insufficient or faulty monitoring equipment, including carbon monoxide detectors
