Carbon Monoxide is highly dangerous because of the fact that it cannot be seen or smelled at high levels, and can kill a person within minutes. Hundreds of people die accidentally every year from Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning; caused by malfunctioning or improperly used fuel-burning appliances. Even more die from CO produced by idling cars. Fetuses, infants, elderly people, and people with anemia or with a history of heart or respiratory disease can be especially susceptible.

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is produced whenever any fuel is burned. Examples of fuel sources are:

* Gas
* Oil
* Kerosene
* Wood
* Charcoal

If appliances that burn fuel are maintained and used properly, the amount of CO produced is usually not hazardous. However, if appliances are not working properly or are used incorrectly, dangerous levels of CO can result.

Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide poisoning are very similar to the flu, food poisoning and other illnesses, which is why it is so hard to determine whether Carbon Monoxide poisoning is the actual cause.

At low levels of exposure symptoms of Carbon Monoxide poisoning can include:

* Shortness of breath
* Mild nausea
* Mild headaches

At moderate levels of exposure symptoms of Carbon Monoxide poisoning can include:

* Severe headaches
* Dizziness
* Mental confusion
* Nausea
* Fainting

Client Reviews
I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard
I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
