How Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Occurs

Carbon monoxide poisoning is very often fatal. Because it is a colorless, odorless gas, most people do not realize they are being exposed to carbon monoxide in time to get to safety. When individuals do survive, they are often left with serious, lifelong injuries, including brain injuries.

Carbon monoxide poisoning can occur when:

  • Gas burning appliances do not burn properly
  • Other combustion processes do not burn properly
  • There is insufficient ventilation in the area
  • Improper exhaust leads to unsafe concentrations of gas

If you have been seriously harmed or have had a loved one killed as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning, negligence may be a contributing factor in the incident. Our team is skilled at determining the cause of carbon monoxide poisoning and can help you seek the just compensation you are owed for damages.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Cases We Have Handled

Litigating carbon monoxide poisoning cases is a complex matter and requires an in-depth understanding of state and federal laws. At The Spence Law Firm, we look at every detail of your situation, including how carbon monoxide got from the source to the victim, in order to assess liability. Our firm has handled many carbon monoxide poisoning cases involving wrongful death, personal injury, and brain injury.

Some of our more recent carbon monoxide poisoning cases include:

  • In 2017 we have settled several carbon monoxide poisoning cases, including a confidential settlement after six days of trial for a brain injury caused by carbon monoxide poisoning at a vacation rental house with a defective boiler unit and no carbon monoxide alarms to warn the occupants.
  • In 2013, we obtained a $28.2 million verdict for a young woman who suffered acute carbon monoxide poisoning and a permanent brain injury inside her apartment from an unmaintained and dangerous 32-year-old furnace. We sued the property manager and owner/landlord of the property who knew the furnaces at the apartment complex were dangerous.
  • In 2015 and 2016, we settled a wrongful death and personal injury (two victim) carbon monoxide poisoning case in Boise, Idaho against the property owner and managers of an apartment complex. A faulty water heater poisoned two teenagers as they slept. Confidential settlements were reached with five different defendants before the liable plumbing company and plumber settled claims against them for an additional $1 million.
  • We represented the family of two children, ages 9 and 11, who were poisoned while swimming near the back deck of their family's houseboat. The houseboat's generators exhaust was piped into a space that did not allow proper ventilation, creating a hidden hazard that killed the boys. We achieved a record monetary settlement for the family and collaborated with governmental agencies to enact a nationwide safety recall of all improperly ventilated houseboats. Additionally, a nationwide safety campaign was initiated to educate the public about carbon monoxide poisoning and we assisted the family in setting up the Double Angel Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to carbon monoxide hazard education.
  • We are currently litigating and investigating a number of other carbon monoxide poisoning cases in several states across the West, including cases involving faulty furnaces, boilers, and water heaters in apartment complexes, houses, and commercial settings; semi-truck exhaust systems, and more.
  • A confidential multi-million dollar settlement for two wrongful deaths caused by carbon monoxide in a home with defective carbon monoxide detectors.
