March, 1992 – In this case, our clients lost a family member and had 3 injured by carbon monoxide poisoning. Their home had a gas powered hot water heater which caused the poisoning. It did not have a vent safety shutoff switch which it should have had. If it had that switch, the family would have been saved from a huge loss. The jury sent a message to Defendant to put these safety switches on their hot water heaters in the future.
