Fuel Tank Explosions
When considering the design and manufacture of an automobile, one is likely to pay much attention to the engine and various safety systems as they tend to involve the greatest degree of refinement. While this complexity certainly creates the potential for defects or malfunctions to arise that could compromise a motorists’ safety, there are other dangers that seem less apparent. For example, the construction of the gas tank does not strike one as inherently hazardous. However, a faulty gas tank, due to its containment of highly flammable gasoline, generates a risk of explosions and fires.
If you have been harmed due to an explosion resulting from the negligent design or installation of a gas tank, you may be entitled to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.

Injuries Associated with Exploding Gas Tanks
Vehicle designs that called for the gas tank to be placed behind the rear axle were among the first to be proven to have a significantly heightened risk of explosions. In the event of an accident, these gas tanks became subject to crushing pressure and would burst into flames. These glaring errors are made less frequently these days, but in the event of an explosion, the following devastating consequences are likely:
- Severe Flesh Burns
- Nerve damage
- Smoke Inhalation
In the event that you or someone you love is injured by an exploding fuel tank, you may be able to receive compensation for your losses.
