How our injury solicitors in St Neots could help you
If you have been affected by carbon monoxide poisoning, whether directly yourself, or through the loss of a loved one, then contact one of our injury solicitors in St Neots today to find out if you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Legally you are allowed to make a claim for compensation if you have been injured in an accident which was not your fault. Of course, accidents don’t just come in the form of broken bones or cuts and bruises. An accident can also incorporate incidents such as industrial diseases and carbon monoxide poisoning, as well as other forms of poisoning.
To find out more about whether or not you could make a claim, provide us with some information about your incident and your injuries by taking our 30-second test. Based on the details you provide us with we will be able to tell you immediately if you are entitled to make a claim or not. Our injury solicitors in St Neots will then be on hand to help you with every aspect of your claim.
Carbon monoxide is a gas which occurs as a result of an incomplete combustion process. It is a natural product, and is exceptionally dangerous. This is because the carbon monoxide gas, when breathed in, attaches itself to healthy red blood cells within our blood stream and inhibits their ability to transfer oxygen throughout the body. This effectively leads to the body suffocating – cells and tissues die – and within a relatively short period, it can cause fatalities.
Within every household and potentially workplace, there are many different appliances or instances in which carbon monoxide is produced. Anything that burns substances such as fuel, gas or oil will produce carbon monoxide if it is not working properly.
Our injury solicitors in St Neots are aware that one of the most common causes for carbon monoxide being released into people’s homes are their boilers. If a boiler is not working effectively, is faulty, or has not been installed correctly then there is the potential for this lethal carbon monoxide gas to be released into your home.
As it is colourless and odourless there is virtually no way for you to be able to detect whether or not it is escaping into your home. The symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning can mimic many other conditions, from colds, flu, stomach bugs to hangovers and general “over tiredness”. You cannot rely on the symptoms to provide you with a diagnosis which will allow you to get help.
Make sure you install a working carbon monoxide detector in your home, and check it regularly. You would rather have to buy new batteries than contact injury solicitors in St Neots to make a claim if you have suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning.
