Carbon Monoxide Claims

Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas which is released when fuel is not burned properly. It is colourless, odourless and tasteless and therefore impossible for people to detect without a carbon monoxide alarm.

Carbon monoxide can leak from heaters, boilers or flues which have either not been installed correctly, or not been properly maintained. Unfortunately it is often too late when people realise they have a carbon monoxide leak, and the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning are extremely serious, sometimes resulting in serious illness or even death.

Making a claim after carbon monoxide poisoning

If you have been ill as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning, or suffered any other injury as a result of a faulty boiler then you may well be entitled to compensation from your landlord or their managing agents.

The key to succeeding in such a claim will be to show that your landlord knew or ought to have known about the problem, either because you have previously told them about fault with the defective boiler or heater or perhaps they failed to carry out the necessary annual gas safety check.

How Osbornes can help you claim compensation

Osbornes have a team of experienced legal experts who will quickly be able to assess the chances that your case has of succeeding and of you obtaining compensation. We also understand that often in cases such as this, it will be about more than just the compensation, but also about feeling vindicated and being able to show that the defendant has acted negligently.

Faulty boiler cases will often involve a whole string of requests from the victim to their landlord or managing agent to carry out repairs or just to replace the faulty boiler. This can also lead to a growing sense of anger and frustration in the victim when these, often reasonable requests, are ignored and injury or illness occurs as a result. In this way the victims of cases such as these will often attach a high degree of importance to the process of publicly proving that they were right, rather than just the financial aspect of compensation.

If you or someone you know has suffered illness due to carbon monoxide poisoning from a faulty boiler of heater contact our specialist claims injury team to find out if you are eligible to make a claim.
