Landover Fuel Tank Explosion Attorneys

Handling Car Part Liability Claims with Professionalism

A properly designed and manufactured gas tank should be constructed in a way that prevents it from combusting or exploding in the event of an accident. Unfortunately, corporate negligence and faulty auto part designs can turn fuel tanks into ticking time-bombs, subjecting vehicle passengers to serious harm when they are involved in an accident.

A company must be held liable for its failure to properly design and construct their fuel tanks when those mistakes lead to innocent consumers’ injuries. At Ashcraft & Gerel, we help the injured victims of defective fuel tanks pursue justice and seek compensation for the damages they have suffered.

To discuss your claim with our team, please call (301) 327-2104 today.

Recent Jeep Recall

When a car’s fuel tank is located behind the vehicle’s rear axle, passengers are particularly susceptible to fuel-fed fires in a crash. In recent years, many carmakers have announced recalls due to faulty gas tanks that have caused serious injury.

In 2013, Chrysler recalled 1.56 million Jeep SUVs with rear fuel tanks. The Jeep Liberty (model year 2002-2007) and the Jeep Grand Cherokee (model year 1993-1998) were recalled. Despite these recalls, defective Jeeps have caused ongoing harm and tragic deaths because of faulty fuel tanks.

Seeking Justice against Negligent Carmakers

The position of the fuel tank is not the only type of defect a manufacturer can be held liable for.

Carmakers may also be liable for:

  • Defective gas tank construction
  • Using flawed materials when building gas tanks
  • Failing to secure the tank properly or shield it effectively
  • Flawed gas lines

A manufacturer’s failure to properly create and install a safe fuel tank can cause serious damage and life-changing injuries. The victims of this kind of negligence have the right to seek justice and pursue a claim. We recommend working with a trusted and experienced attorney, like the Landover defective fuel tank attorneys on our team.
