If your attorney doesn’t immediately ask you about the PPM and the COHb levels, then he likely lacks the background of an experienced carbon monoxide attorney. PPM refers to the amount of carbon monoxide in the ambient air. COHb level is the percentage of carbon monoxide in the blood.
Carbon Monoxide Lawyer Needs to Understand Chemistry and Brain Damage
When choosing an attorney for a carbon monoxide lawsuit, it is important that the lawyer not only understand brain injury, but understand the unique characteristics of the liability and causation facts in a carbon monoxide case. A carbon monoxide lawyer must understand the chemistry of carbon monoxide. Your lawyer must understand the principles of HVAC maintenance and negative pressure. A carbon monoxide lawyer must understand the proving causation, including the relationship between COHb levels and outcomes. Ask the lawyer you are considering in a carbon monoxide case to explain COHb half lives. If they hem and haw, they need to associate someone else or you should call a carbon monoxide attorney directly.
Carbon Monoxide Lawyer Needs to Understand Neuroimaging
Neuroimaging is an important element to proving causation in a carbon monoxide case. Does the lawyer you are considering understand the nature of the pathology that a state of the art MRI is likely to find in a carbon monoxide survivor? If the word hippocampus does not show up in that explanation, then you are not talking to a carbon monoxide attorney.
