The largest manufacturer of plastic gas cans, Blitz USA, has been manufacturing gas cans that have caused many people, including children, to suffer horrible burns and even death throughout the United States. Blitz USA has failed to install a simple mesh screen in the gas can that would help prevent the gas vapors from exploding. This simple flame arrestor costs less than $1.00 per gas can.
Blitz USA has filed for bankruptcy protection and has launched a propaganda campaign that blames the products liability litigation for their business’ failure. However, Blitz USA’s decision to continually manufacture an inherently dangerous product, that has lead to burning innocent victims, is the leading cause for their bankruptcy protection filing. Blitz USA choose to value the cost of human life and safety at less that $1 and mass manufactured a product that is extremely dangerous to the user. This decision allows the plastic gas can to inexplicably explode through no fault of the user.
If you, or someone you know has suffered personal injuries from the explosion of a plastic gas can, you may have a personal injury claim and should contact an experienced personal injury lawyer for a case evaluation.
