Compressed natural gas (CNG) is becoming more and more popular for big rigs, buses, and delivery vehicles. Not only is this fuel cheaper than gasoline; it is also much more eco-friendly. While a brand new CNG vehicle may be perfectly safe, as these vehicles age they become prone to many problems that can increase the risk of an explosion.
CNG explosions are sudden and devastating. They may injure or even kill the vehicle driver and passengers, as well as bystanders and rescue personnel. Burn injuries from the combustion of the gas and lacerations, broken bones, and other injures from flying debris are common.
At Castillo & Associates, we handle both personal injury and wrongful death cases associated with compressed natural gas accidents. We understand the highly technical evidence that is involved in establishing why the CNG tank exploded and who is liable.
For example, if the tank was in good repair and exploded when another driver collided with the CNG vehicle, that driver would be liable for the accident. If the tank was past its expiration date, if the shocks on the vehicle were worn out, or if any other type of negligent maintenance helped to trigger the explosion, the owner or operator of the vehicle would also be liable.
