Gas Tank Fires and Auto Fuel System Defects
Motor vehicles are supposed to be designed such that a minor collision with another vehicle will not cause the vehicle to erupt in flames. However, when there are defects in the gas tank or the vehicle is improperly designed, rear impact and other impact could lead to gas tank explosion of fuel-fed fires. Our attorneys handle product liability claims involving all types of auto fuel system defects, such as:
- Fuel tank systems that do not withstand punctures or cracking
- Defective fuel lines that leak
- Defective design involving poor placement of the gas tank
- Anti-siphoning device defects that allow gas leakage following a crash
- Other auto fuel system defects
