How do you detect carbon monoxide in the air?

We measure length with a ruler, weight with a scale, and temperature with a thermometer, but how do you measure for the colorless, odorless, tasteless, and extremely toxic gas - carbon monoxide?

High-risk groups: who's most at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning?

Carbon monoxide (also known by its chemical formula "CO") is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and non-irritating gas produced by burning fuels. When a person inhales it, CO binds to the hemoglobin in the blood and rapidly cuts off the body's oxygen supply. Acute poisoning can kill a person in minutes. Toxicologists consider CO one of the most dangerous poisons, dubbing it the "silent killer" for its elusive properties.

Symptoms and Common Misdiagnoses of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

We don't pay much attention to the smoke rising off the grill, the exhaust trailing the family car, or the invisible backdraft flowing from the fireplace, but something lethal lurks in the fumes.

Long-term effects of severe carbon monoxide poisoning

In toxicology, dosage determines the case. In the same way, the severity of a carbon monoxide poisoning depends primarily on a person's exposure to it - the higher the dosage, the worse the poisoning.

Texas dram shop laws: When is an alcohol provider responsible?

Dram shop laws, also known as social host liability laws, hold alcohol providers partially responsible for the actions of drunken recipients in certain situations. Dram shop laws for Texas are outlined in the Alcoholic Beverage Code.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Kills Local Family

The personal injury lawyers at the Wyatt Law Firm extend our sincerest condolences to the Cavazos family. We are so sorry to hear of the sudden loss of Mr. Cavazos and his two daughters, found dead in their home Monday evening.

What is fatigued driving, and why don't I hear about it?

Did you know that fatigued driving causes over 100,000 accidents every year? Even worse, researchers believe the known figures of fatigue-related accidents are likely underreported. Trucking accident researcher Ronald Knipling (p. 160) has noted that "in-depth investigations consistently uncover about three fatigue-related crashes for every one designated by the police"[1]. The personal injury lawyers at Wyatt Law Firm understand that driving while fatigued once can come with lifelong repercussions.

Road Construction Accidents: Motorists and Workers

For motorists and workers, road construction zones are perilous places. The state of Texas constantly builds, repairs, and maintains roads. However, construction zones have higher accident rates. For example, Waco law enforcement has already reported accident rate upticks along an I-35 construction project [1]. Yesterday in Dallas, a van flipped in a construction zone, killing one worker and injuring another [2]. Although there are precautions motorists should take and guidelines construction entities must follow to make them as safe as possible, construction zones are still dangerous.

Fatal Collisions among Young Adult Drivers

Getting behind the wheel for the first time may feel invigorating, but it comes with enormous risk. Young drivers make up a significant percentage of traffic accident fatalities. Fledgling drivers are already some of the most vulnerable on the road due to their relative inexperience, but other endangering habits and factors can intensify that lack of experience. Consequently, teens and young adults are some of the most susceptible to fatal crashes.

Asleep at the wheel: the dangers of fatigued driving

"You drive lousy when you drive drowsy." Fatigued and drowsy driving is a serious problem in Texas, which sustains some of the highest drowsy driving deaths in the nation. A study conducted by sleepjunkie.org indicates that more than 1 in 5 of national driver fatigue-related fatalities in 2016 occurred in Texas. At Wyatt Law Firm, our personal injury and auto accident lawyers understand how serious this problem is.
