Symptoms of Poisoning

Poisoning can occur from several things. It can be done accidentally or intentionally. You can be poisoned from something you eat or drink, an insect or snake bite, or household chemicals. Working with chemicals, such as pesticides or paint varnishes, can also poison you. Even medications that are meant to help you can be toxic. Most poisoning is done accidently, but is still quite costly if it happens to you. If you feel you’ve been poisoned, it’s best to contact knowledgeable attorneys. Here at Hepworth & Associates, we have the knowledge and experience getting you a fair settlement for losses you might incur from poisoning.

In some instances, you’ll know if you’ve been poisoned immediately. The full effect of poisoning can sometimes take weeks to fully impact you. Symptoms include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Hyperactivity
  • Drooling
  • Changes in heart rate
  • Changes in breathing
  • Pain

Depending on the type of toxin you’ve been exposed to, the symptoms and time frame in which they affect you will fluctuate greatly. It’s vital to remember where and what you were doing to pinpoint what has poisoned you. If you feel you’ve been poisoned, it’s important to disclose any information you have to your attorney.
