Detroit Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Attorneys
Carbon monoxide poisoning is a potentially deadly risk associated with boating. Death can happen in mere minutes when an individual unknowingly inhales large concentrations of carbon monoxide that has built up in a small area like the swim platform. Gasoline-powered boats in particular produce ten times more CO than those powered by diesel, so owners of gas boats must be especially careful about their boat’s exhaust fumes. Unfortunately, carbon monoxide poisoning can occur as a result of the boat owner’s negligence.
If you or a loved one has sustained carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of a suspected negligent boater’s actions, contact a Detroit carbon monoxide poisoning attorney with Ravid & Associates, P.C., to determine your eligibility for financial compensation.
