Suffocation Personal Injury Attorneys in Houston, TX

Anoxic brain injury and suffocation death personal injury attorney

Suffocation causes oxygen deprivation and can lead to anoxic brain injury and death.

Engulfment and positional/crush suffocation

Suffocation can occur because of engulfment such as in grain elevators, sand pits or trench collapses. Mal-positioning of the body such as with “hog tying” or in structure and other collapses can also cause suffocation.

Oxygen deficient environment and confined spaces

Suffocation can also occur because of an oxygen deficient environment. For example, tanks are often shipped with “nitrogen blankets,” nitrogen rich environments purged of oxygen in order to prevent oxidation inside the tank -- entry into a tank without an oxygen mask can be deadly. A hole watch and means of extraction is essential, as brain injury and death can be rapid. A deficient oxygen environment can cause rapid unconsciousness making escape impossible.

Confined space entry permits require very precise precautions before entering confined spaces that are oxygen deficient or contain other vapors or hazardous air conditions.
