What is carbon monoxide?

Carbon monoxide, also known as ‘the silent killer’, is a toxic gas which we cannot smell or taste.

Carbon monoxide is produced when wood, coal, oil or gas are burned in an environment that lacks oxygen. In this environment, carbon dioxide cannot be produced and carbon monoxide is created, instead.

There are occasions when carbon monoxide is naturally produced, and in a safe environment, such as with gas boilers. However, gas boilers can malfunction, and this can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.

The amount of compensation you are awarded will be based on the seriousness of your injuries, as well as the length of time it took you to recover.

What causes carbon monoxide poisoning?

A common cause of carbon monoxide poisoning in homes is poorly maintained gas appliances. These can include gas fires and central heating systems. If you live in rented accommodation, it’s typically your landlord’s responsibility to make sure your gas appliances are regularly checked and safe to use.

If your landlord has failed to do this, and you’ve been poisoned as a result, we may be able to help you claim compensation.

At work, you may have been poisoned by using unsafe equipment, or not being provided the correct safety equipment. If that’s the case, give us a call on 0800 540 4258  for free and we’ll see how we can help you.

The effects of carbon monoxide poisoning

The effects of carbon monoxide poisoning can be diverse, depending on the levels of your exposure. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning can include:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Tiredness
  • Stomach pains
  • Confusion

In some severe cases, carbon monoxide can cause brain and heart damage. It may also lead to urinary incontinence and ongoing bladder problems.

If you think you may be suffering from any of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, you should seek medical attention.

Your doctor will be able to diagnose any poisoning you’ve suffered with a blood test.

It’s likely that you’ll start to feel better as soon as you’re away from the source of the gas. However, if you’ve been exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide, or been around carbon monoxide for a long time, you may need oxygen treatment.
