When you booked your Air BNB rental in California, you were likely thinking about all the fun you would have with friends and family exploring the city, town, beaches, mountains, or lakes near your destination.

Our experienced Air BNB carbon monoxide poisoning attorneys are here to provide the information you need to move forward from this catastrophic event. In addition, we are here 24/7 to take your call and provide answers to your questions and guidance on moving forward with a lawsuit.

Understanding Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas that is produced when gas is burned. It is a byproduct of the flame on a gas furnace, gas stove, gas water heater, gas oven, and any other appliance that burns natural gas to create heat. The only way that these devices can be safely used in a home is with proper venting and ventilation in the house. Many people, including first responders, often refer to carbon monoxide as a silent killer because humans cannot detect it. The only way to discover a buildup of carbon monoxide in a room or house is by recognizing the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning before it is too late.

Carbon monoxide is hazardous because it displaces the essential oxygen from the air humans breathe. Slowly, the body begins to suffer from oxygen deprivation. If the victim is not removed from the carbon monoxide-laden air soon enough, there will be permanent damage or a fatality.

Recognizing The Signs Of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

If you are fortunate enough to get to a person suffering the early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning, there is a good possibility for recovery. First, however, you must act quickly and immediately move them to fresh air. Because carbon monoxide is a gas, leave all windows and doors open and leave the area quickly and carefully. A single spark could ignite the gas and cause an explosion.

Indications that someone is suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning include:

  • A headache or difficulty concentrating
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Blurred vision
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Shortness of breath or trouble breathing
  • Loss of consciousness

Carbon monoxide poisoning is especially dangerous when the victim is sleeping as they may become unconscious without ever waking up due to breathing challenges.

Carbon Monoxide Alarms Are The Law In California

Because carbon monoxide is so hazardous and impossible for humans to detect, the state requires every home and apartment to install a carbon monoxide alarm or detector outside each sleeping area in the dwelling and in the basement. It is recommended that these devices that work like smoke detectors be installed in each room that uses a gas appliance. The alarms can be hard-wired or battery-operated and should be inspected and batteries replaced in battery-powered units along with smoke detectors every six months.

If you or a loved one suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning at an Air BNB in California, don’t hesitate to get in touch with DTLA Law Group today. Our experienced Air BNB carbon monoxide poisoning attorneys will help you understand your legal rights and how to move forward to secure the compensation you will need to pay medical bills and other expenses due to this sad event.

The Long-Term And Severe Injuries Due To Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Sadly, around 500 people die each year in the United States due to carbon monoxide poisoning. Another 20,000 suffer injuries that can include:

  • Lung damage and permanent breathing issues
  • Memory loss
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Severe headaches
  • Nerve pain
  • An altered personality
  • Anger issues or change in temperament
  • Psychosis
  • Heart damage
  • Parkinson’s Disease

These are just some health issues you or your loved one could face after carbon monoxide poisoning. Immediate medical care is vital for anyone who could have been suffering from exposure to carbon monoxide.

Wrongful Death And Carbon Monoxide

While it is not common, with only 500 deaths yearly, every carbon monoxide death is preventable. Installing a few carbon monoxide detectors could prevent life-altering health issues or the loss of life. If you lost a loved one due to an Air BNB carbon monoxide poisoning, contact the wrongful death attorneys at DTLA Law Group. We understand the pain you are suffering at the loss of your loved one. And we will guide you in seeking the compensation your loved one deserves. From medical bills to loss of earning potential, the person responsible for your loved one’s passing must be held accountable. Your action to file a lawsuit will help your family move forward with financial stability and possibly prevent another innocent victim from suffering at the same Air BNB.

Understanding The Statute Of Limitations For Personal Injury And Wrongful Death

In California, a two-year window exists for a personal injury victim to file a lawsuit against the party responsible for their injury. In the case of Air BNB carbon monoxide poisoning, you have two years from the date of the incident to make a claim against the Air BNB owners. In addition, if you are taking action on behalf of a loved one who perished due to carbon monoxide poisoning, you also have two years to file a wrongful death claim against the Air BNB owners.

The team at DTLA Law Group will help you understand the exceptions to these rules and work within the letter of the law, if any apply to your situation. In addition, we will work diligently to see that justice is served for you or your loved one. While there is no specific time frame for the completion of a lawsuit, the team at DTLA Law Group will work to move your case forward as quickly as possible.
