Chemical Poisoning Claims: Harmful Chemical Exposure & Injury Claims

If you have suffered illness or injury after being exposed to harmful chemicals whilst at work, you could be eligible to make a chemical poisoning claim. Your employer has an obligation to make sure you are protected from hazardous substances whilst in the working environment; if they fail in that obligation, you are entitled to financial compensation.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Claims

The effects of carbon monoxide poisoning can be extremely serious. If another person has not done their job properly and you, or a member of your family, have suffered as a direct result, you could be entitled to claim compensation.

Carbon monoxide (or CO) is toxic. The threat of Carbon monoxide poisoning is compounded by the fact that carbon monoxide is colourless, odourless and tasteless, making it incredibly difficult for people to detect. Inhaling too much of the gas can result in poisoning, which can prove incredibly damaging to your body, as well as impair your mental functions.

What are the symptoms of Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning?

It is not always easy to notice the signs of carbon monoxide poisoning. However, common symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Tiredness
  • Confusion
  • Breathlessness

Those who have been exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide may experience more severe symptoms. These can include an impaired mental state, vertigo, ataxia, seizures and loss of consciousness.
