This case involves multiple plaintiffs living in a low-income apartment housing complex that died due to carbon monoxide poisoning. The pipes in the boiler room allegedly began to rust and crack causing a leak of carbon monoxide. There were no carbon monoxide detectors present in the apartments or boiler room to warn the residents. The defendant alleged that an inspection of the boiler room was conducted 6 months prior to the incident. An expert in boiler maintenance and repair was sought to inspect the site, determine whether or not the boiler had been maintained properly, and discuss industry standards for boiler maintenance.
