Defective Fuel Tanks
Whether it is a car, motorcycle, or riding lawn mower, any vehicle with a combustion engine has to have a fuel source and fuel tank. Gas tanks range in size for each vehicle and can hold gasoline, diesel, and many other flammable liquids. This can cause a potential threat if a gas tank is defective, catches fire, or explodes.
If you or a loved one has been injured because of a faulty fuel tank, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation to help pay for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and even wrongful death.

Potential Dangers of Fuel Tanks
Fuel tanks have to be carefully designed to carry flammable liquids safely. If fuel tank manufacturers produce faulty products, you could be in danger of suffering devastating injuries. All fuel tanks should be able to do the following:
- Keep fuel protected from high temperatures
- Be sturdy enough to not leak or break in the event of a collision
- Be sturdy enough to handle extreme pressure from fuel expanding
If a fuel tank cannot meet these criteria, it could be potentially dangerous for drivers and passengers.
