Bordas & Bordas has handled multiple cases involving the tragic situation of a “fuel-fed fire,” which can occur as a result of defective gas tank or fuel system in a motor vehicle. In one case, Bordas & Bordas was sought by an out-of-state law firm to take advantage of our expertise in handling cases of this nature.
Because of the deaths and extremely serious bodily injuries that can result from these cases, they need to be handled by a skilled auto defects attorney with the experience and resources to take on major auto manufacturers in regard to designs that simply aren’t safe for motorists. A Pittsburgh gas tank defects lawyer at our firm has done that in the past and will continue to do so in cases moving forward.
Defective Case Tanks and Fuel-fed Fires
The damage from a car accident can increase significantly in the event of a fuel-fed fire. Many fuel-fed fires are the result of improper placement of the gas tank, defects in the fuel line, and other flaws in design and construction.
Many vehicles involved in fuel-fed fires have had “side-saddle” tanks — gas tanks that are placed outside the frame of the vehicle. Newer models of these cars and trucks are designed with improved gas tank placement, but the older models still pose a serious risk of injury for many people.
Burn injuries resulting from a fuel-fed fire can change the accident victim’s life forever. A diligent gas tank defects attorney in Pittsburgh can help you assess full damages and pursue compensation for your medical bills, wage loss, pain and suffering, and other losses.
