How Does Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Occur?
Carbon monoxide may leak from any kind of internal-combustion engine. Such engines include work equipment such as generators, floor buffers and forklifts, and home appliances such as portable propane camping heaters, water heaters, gas-log fireplaces, furnaces and stoves. You also may have inhaled too much carbon monoxide from the engine or propane water heater on your boat.
If you are suffering from severe health problems because your work space did not have proper ventilation, or because your landlord failed to control the amount of carbon monoxide in your home, you should speak with an attorney to learn more about your legal options.
Children & Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Children are often victims of CO poisoning as well. According to the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, more than 3,000 children 14 years of age and under are treated for carbon monoxide poisoning in hospital emergency rooms each year in the U.S.
