The Silent Killer
Carbon monoxide is commonly referred to as the “silent killer” because of its odorless and colorless qualities. It is produced when engines burn fuel, such as gas, kerosene, wood or charcoal.
Although carbon monoxide is commonly released in small amounts that are not harmful, large amounts of the gas, especially in enclosed spaces, can be dangerous. Because the gas is not easily detected, many people may not know they have been exposed unless they experience the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, which can include:
- Disorientation and confusion
Many of these symptoms are similar to those of the flu, which can cause carbon monoxide poisoning to go undiagnosed.
Exposure to the gas for an extended period of time or in high concentrations can lead to serious injuries such as:
- Brain damage
- Heart attacks and other cardiac problems
- Respiratory issues
- Impairment in sensory and motor skills
Even short periods of exposure can begin to cause lasting damage, as the effects occur very quickly. The gas restricts the flow of oxygen to the body, which can greatly damage internal organs and the brain.
If you have experienced any of these symptoms or injuries and believe your poisoning was a result of another person’s negligence, contact our Davie carbon monoxide lawyers right away.
