What is carbon monoxide poisoning and how do I prevent it?

Two dead in Waterloo apparently from fumes from a generator being used for power inside the homes attached garage.

I’ve written on this subject and if you go to the Lombardi Law Firm website [www.lombardilaw.com] and do a search for “carbon monoxide poisoning” you’ll see at least twenty-five posts.

Now here is the news item from KCRG-TV9 which does a great job of reporting the news.

Two dead in Waterloo; fumes from generator suspected

WATERLOO, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) —Police think fumes from a gas generator may have caused the deaths of a man and woman whose bodies were found in their flood-damaged home in Waterloo.

Authorities found the pair, and two dogs, dead about 10 a.m. Sunday.

Neighbors told police the man and woman had been cleaning their home at 4011 E. Shaulis Road. The two may have been using a generator inside the house's attached garage. Flood waters damaged the property last month.

Police say a friend of the victims alerted authorities after finding one of the two unresponsive.
A medical examiner will conduct autopsies soon to find an official cause of death of the man and woman.

Police don't believe there are any signs of foul play.”

Here are a few titles from Lombardi Law Firm posts about carbon monoxide poisoning.

And yes whoever is not the homeowner in this case may have a claim against the homeowner's insurance policy for negligence or a defect in the property. The deceased person would have an estate opened in order to pursue the claim. This is work we do on a constant basis for what lawyers refer to as wrongful death.
