What you need to know: FAQs answers from the leading carbon monoxide poisoning lawyers
Q: What are the symptoms of CO poisoning?
Carbon monoxide is especially dangerous because it may go undetected. Often, victims do not know they have been exposed to carbon monoxide until they begin suffering with symptoms such as:
- Dull headaches
- Nausea or vomiting
- Shortness of breath
- Blurred vision
- Loss of consciousness
Because many of these symptoms are similar to the flu and other illnesses, victims will often delay seeking critical medical treatment and may lie down to rest and never wake up.
If you have been injured or poisoned by carbon monoxide gas, you will need urgent medical and legal help. You should immediately see your doctor or go to the closest emergency room. It is important to have a carbon monoxide detector and to make sure it is working properly. Treat carbon monoxide symptoms seriously and seek medical help right away.
Q: Where exactly is carbon monoxide gas?
Carbon monoxide is in many everyday items. According to the CDC’s carbon monoxide poisoning report, the most common CO emissions come from burning fuel in:
- Small engines
- Gas grills
- Gas ranges
