Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Carbon Monoxide LawyerAlthough they may not happen as frequently as, say for example car accidents, carbon monoxide injuries are not to be taken lightly. Carbon monoxide, a type of flammable gas, can have fatal consequences. According to recent studies by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are upwards of 20,000 visits to the emergency room as a direct cause of carbon monoxide poisoning. Based on the same study, of the 20,000 emergency room trips, 4,000 end up resulting in hospitalization, and 400 result in fatalities. With no smell, taste, or sound, a carbon monoxide poisoning can seem to come out of nowhere, but the consequences can last a lifetime. It is important to know the various symptoms and signs of a carbon monoxide poisoning before it’s too late.

What sort of things can cause carbon monoxide poisoning?

Every carbon monoxide case is unique. However, a lot of the time, carbon monoxide poisoning is caused because of somebody else’s negligence. Most commonly, we see this is normal household products that have been manufactured poorly and, in turn, leak the gas into the air that can cause you a serious injury. It is important in cases where your carbon monoxide poisoning was caused by someone else to seek professional legal counsel in order to ensure you get your fair compensation for the injuries that you have suffered from.

Some of the more common examples of household, day-to-day objects that can cause carbon monoxide poisoning include (but are certainly not limited to):

  • Electric grills
  • Gas fireplaces
  • Oil furnaces
  • Clothes dryers
  • Water heaters powered by gas
  • Wood-burning stoves
  • Refrigerators

Regardless of how big or small the appliance is, most gas-using objects can cause the same among of damage to your body. Something as small as a poorly manufactured mini electric grill that leaks carbon monoxide gas can cause you or somebody in your family to die.

What are common symptoms of a carbon monoxide poisoning?

Although carbon monoxide is somewhat of a silent killer, there are certain symptoms to identify before it is too late. It is critical to know the signs so you can pick out a potential poisoning and receive medical care as quickly as possible. The longer you wait, the more likely you or whoever else is suffering from the poisoning, can suffer much more fatal injuries. Common symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include:

  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Weakening of the body (such as unexpected body fatigue)
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Difficulty seeing
  • Fainting

Please remember that none of these symptoms are exclusive to carbon monoxide poisoning. That being said, if you feel that some of these symptoms come on unexpectedly and seemingly ‘out-of-nowhere,’ it is important to seek medical attention, and later legal action.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
