Compensation for Poison Fumes

When it comes to working or even living around gas, electrical or other appliances, without proper maintenance there is always a chance that something can go wrong. When it comes to gases, one of the main problems that we are faced with is the fact that in many case they are invisible and as such we may be unaware of any potentially poisonous fumes until it is too late.

In some situations it is our responsibility to have smoke detectors and other safety features within our homes and workplaces to ensure that we aren’t subjected to this style of dangerous fumes, but in some cases this can’t always happen and as a result, we could inhale and suffer from the effects of poisonous fumes.

If you have come into contact with poisonous fumes through the negligence of your employer or negligence of another person around your home, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation to cover any costs.

What type of Poison Fumes could I be affected by?

When it comes to poison fumes there are a number of different fumes that you could suffer from, but two of the most dangerous are generally smoke – which may emanate from a fire, or carbon monoxide which can be released as a transparent gas in the home or the workplace.

What injuries could I claim for?

There are a number of injuries that you could receive as the result of inhaling poisonous fumes and these include:

  • Breathing difficulties
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Loss of memory
  • Joint pain
  • Skin damage.

Who could I claim against?

When it comes to poisonous fumes you can make a claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you, this could include your employer if you feel that they haven’t provided you with ample safety equipment, or it could be the council or other authority if you have been injured through poisonous fumes which have leaked into your house.

In addition you could make a claim against a manufacturer if you have been injured as the result of a faulty piece of equipment which has given off poisonous fumes as a result.
