Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide can be known as the silent killer. It is an odourless and invisible gas, and if it is breathed into the lungs in high concentration, it can make you very unwell and can even be fatal. If you are poisoned through breathing in carbon monoxide, or know someone who has been poisoned or has died as a result of breathing in this gas, and it is due to someone else’s negligence, then you are thoroughly entitled to claim compensation. At Jones Whyte, our dedicated solicitors will do all they can to help you get the result you deserve. Get in contact with us today and we will discuss your matter with you.

Ways in which you can Contract Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

All it takes to suffer from carbon monoxide is a faulty machine or using gas-powered machines in a negligent manner. For instance, the specialist solicitors at Jones Whyte can help you claim for compensation in the following instances:

  • If you live in rented accommodation, your landlord has a duty to ensure that your appliances are properly maintained. If a gas oven or gas central heating-system is faulty, and the landlord fails to rectify the issue, this could lead to a gas leak. If you suffer from carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of this then contact the solicitors at Jones Whyte today. We will do all we can to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
  • If you are unduly exposed to carbon monoxide at work and you suffer poisoning as a result of your employer’s negligence then the expert solicitors at Jones Whyte can help you get the compensation you deserve as a result of your injury.
  • There may be something intrinsically wrong with you household appliance, which means that it is leaking carbon monoxide unduly. In this case, our specialist team at Jones Whyte can help you recover compensation from the product manufacturer or distributor to make sure that you are properly compensated for the injury you have suffered.

How the Solicitors in Glasgow can help you in a Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Claim

The first thing you should do when you realise you have suffered carbon monoxide poisoning is to seek medical attention.

The experienced solicitors at Jones Whyte will gather all the information necessary from you so that we can properly construct your claim. We will contact the party you hold responsible and put your case across so that we can attempt to settle the matter at an early stage. However, if the other side denies liability, then we will represent you in court.
