CBS4Denver.com has reported that a “wrongful death lawsuit was filed in Denver Wednesday by relatives of a Denver family killed on Thanksgiving Day in 2008 by leaking carbon monoxide.” The family was staying in a vacation home in Aspen at the time, part of a package deal they purchased in a charity auction for their kid’s school. Lawyers for the family allege that several people are responsible for the failures that contributed to their deaths, including the “owner of a plumbing company and two local building inspectors recently indicted in a separate criminal action.” The family hopes the lawsuit will prevent future deaths and will hold those accountable responsible. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that there are 15,000 emergency room visits and 500 deaths due to unintentional CO (carbon monoxide) poisoning in the US every year. The CDC reports that the symptoms most associated with CO poisoning are headaches, nausea, dizziness and mental confusion.

A small plane tried to take off from Centennial Airport on Monday, only one problem, there was no pilot. According to Denver Channel 7, 73-year-old Richard Steinmier was having trouble starting his Cessna from the cockpit due to a dead battery. He tried to start the plane manually by turning the propeller. The plane started and began to taxi down the runway by itself. Steinmier sustained minor injuries as he tried to climb into the plane as it was moving. The plane traveled about 1,000 feet on its own before flipping over. The pilot was the only person reported to have sustained injuries in the accident. The Denver Post reported earlier this month that a pilot was forced to make an emergency landing outside of Loveland. The engine in the experimental aircraft he was flying exploded in mid-flight causing the aircraft to lose its wings. The pilot was able to land the plane safely and avoid injury. Though plane accidents are rare, they do occur. According to the most recent NTSB statistics, there were 79 general aviation accidents in 2009 resulting in 38 fatalities. Accidents can happen in an instant. Aviation accidents can be very serious for both passengers and people on the ground. When an accident occurs because of the carelessness of another, contact the Colorado personal injury law office of John R. Fuller.
