Use of Defective Materials

Fuel tanks serve an important function in each of their applications. While their primary function is to hold or store fuel, they must also do so in a safe manner. This includes shielding the fuel from harsh conditions as well as being able to safely contain the fuel for long periods of time.

Unfortunately, fuel tanks may be more susceptible to leaks and other potentially dangerous flaws when they are made with defective materials. If you or someone you love suffered injuries in a fuel tank explosion, contact the defective materials lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 to learn about your legal rights and options.

Dangers of Faulty Fuel Tank Materials

There are many potential problems with using defective materials when manufacturing a fuel tank. The most common dangers are:

  • Using a material through which fuel seeps
  • Irregularities in the material
  • Lack of adequate strength
  • Failure to shield heat and sparks

These problems may put an individual in danger of serious injury or even death. In most cases, the manufacturer of the fuel tank may be liable for any injuries or deaths that result from an exploding tank that was found to be constructed of defective materials.

Individuals wishing to seek compensation from these manufacturers should consult an experienced fuel tank explosion lawyer in order to begin preparing an effective claim.
