It’s not uncommon to hear about instances where a child or even beloved family pet succumbs to accidental poisoning because of commonly used pesticides. But when pesticide poisoning affects your family, who is to blame?
Recently, four young children in Texas were all killed from pesticide. They ranged from ages seven to 17. While it was originally thought that they were victims of carbon monoxide poisoning, it was later determined that a pesticide was used to fumigate the home, and that it’s aluminum compounds when mixed with water, turned into a potent — and deadly — gas. As a result, the family lost their children as a tragic accident.
Accidental poisoning can happen whether it’s a simple oversight or a blatant form of neglect on the part of an unknown third party.
