Doug Schaub died in his sleep from Carbon Monoxide poisoning after leaving his Toyota RAV-4 running in his garage for over 24 hours. His car idling for over 24 hours filled his garage and eventually the living space of his home resulting in his death. Blame has been placed on a convenience we enjoy more and more in this digital age. The ability to remotely start cars with the push of a button on the key remote has had a deadly effect for some car owners.
In 2010 the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) called for features like beeps to alert drivers their car was still running without the key or fob in or near the car and in some cases to shut the engine off automatically. These safety features were easily accomplished with software updates and in the face of opposition from manufacturers the issue is still under consideration.
Toyota models including Lexus have accounted for almost half of total deaths. Ford has responded by including an alert system which gets louder and louder and then shuts the car off after the vehicle has not had the fob in or near the vehicle for 30 minutes. Owners of older vehicles remain at risk.
The SAE issued a recommendation in January 2011 for carmakers to install an externally audible alert and the same year the NHTSA proposed a rule to do much the same thing as the SAE rule. The auto industry opposed each recommendation and suggested that the issues did not meet the evidence standards of federal vehicle safety laws.
Carbon Monoxide poisoning is insidious and once you are affected you may be so confused and dazed that you end up like the estimated 28 who have died and dozens who’ve been injured from this method of poisoning. The signs of poisoning include:
• Dull headache.
• Weakness.
• Dizziness.
• Nausea or vomiting.
• Shortness of breath.
• Confusion.
• Blurred vision.
• Loss of consciousness.

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.

My daughter was involved in an automobile accident in an intersection on her 17th birthday. The other person said it was her fault and my daughter said her light was green. I am not the sort of person who sues but my insurance
