Exploding Fuel Tank
When filling up a vehicle with gasoline, the average motorist doesn’t give much thought to the devastating explosion that might ensue if something went wrong. We have all been well trained to take precautions like turning off our engines and putting out cigarettes. As a result, getting gas is a safe endeavor to which most drivers don’t even give a second thought. For many, the same is true in the event of an accident. Of all the things that can go wrong, we seldom think about the fact that our gas tank might be the source of a dangerous explosion.
If this unthinkable accident affects you or someone you love, it is possible that an error has been made in the design or installation of your gas tank.

Exploding Gas Tank Injuries
Though it may be the sort of thing that makes it frequently into the movies (often unrealistically), the risk of an exploding gas tank is something that manufacturers and designers of automobiles have gone to great pains to minimize. Nevertheless, it is a tragedy that does occur, and when it does these are the types of injuries that can plague the victims:
- Severe burns
Tragically, the trauma associated with these injuries or with the heat and immediate effects of the initial explosion may prove fatal, leaving the family of the deceased to cope with needless and irreparable loss. A civil lawsuit may be the only means by which to secure any kind of justice in this regrettable situation.
