Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a gas that has no odor, scent or color. We can’t detect the gas, but it can cause life-changing personal injury and death. That’s why it’s often called “the silent killer.”

At the Law Office of Daniel J. Brazil, in Minneapolis, we represent people whose lives have been changed by carbon monoxide poisoning. They’ve lost loved ones or suffered permanent injuries—like traumatic brain injury—that could have been prevented. We fight for them to get the compensation they deserve.

Legal Claims Involving Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Each carbon monoxide lawsuit is different, and there are many ways we can help:

  • Premises liability lawsuits: When carbon monoxide poisoning happens in someone else’s home or in a commercial property, like a hotel, we can file a premises liability lawsuit. In the lawsuit, we hold the property owner (and the property owner’s insurance company) accountable for the harm caused.
  • Product liability lawsuits: Carbon monoxide lawsuits can also happen when a dangerous or defective product causes harm. Devices and appliances such as gas furnaces, stoves, dryers, water heaters and produce carbon monoxide. So does your car. And, unfortunately, there are many ways these devices can be defective and deadly. Poor design, incorrectly built, and improper use instructions can all lead to problems.
  • Personal injury lawsuits: When a furnace or a gas dryer is installed incorrectly and improperly vented, it might be possible to hold the installer accountable in court for this negligence via a personal injury lawsuit.
  • Wrongful death lawsuits: When carbon monoxide poisoning leads to death, we may represent the surviving family members of the person killed. While no amount of money can replace a life, the compensation can help them move forward. It also sends a clear message—the defendant’s actions or products are unsafe or unacceptable, and they will be held accountable for such.
