Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Lawyers in Fort Lauderdale
Carbon monoxide poisoning results in thousands of fatalities and injuries each year. And CO poisoning is on the rise due to the flooding of keyless-go vehicles in the U.S. drivers are forgetting to turn off their vehicles once they park in their own garage, since a key is not needed to start or stop the car. This means the engine will run until the gas tank is empty. Carbon monoxide can kill very quickly in an enclosed space like a garage. Auto manufacturers have known about the dangers associated with keyless-go vehicles for years, but have failed to take action.

Causes of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Keyless go vehicles are not the only causes of carbon monoxide poisoning. More than 50 percent of all carbon monoxide incidents occur within homes due to:
- Defective or wrongly installed appliances
- Poorly constructed and badly ventilated buildings
- Blocked or defective chimneys
- Blocked car exhausts
- Chemical fumes
People may not know that they have been exposed to carbon monoxide—it’s colorless and odorless. But it can build up in the body over time and cause serious damage. Children, the elderly and pregnant women are most susceptible to carbon monoxide poisoning. If you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning, talk to your doctor as soon as possible for an exam and a diagnosis.
