Small Engine Gas Tank Leaks and Fuel Fire Injuries
You are on summer break from college and sign on to run a power saw for the company doing demolition work to tear down the old hotel than has been vacant for a few years. You got your earplugs and safety goggles. They showed you how to start the gasoline powered saw, that looks like a chainsaw you would use to cut down trees, only instead of a chain it has a grinding and cutting wheel. It cuts through the steel piping and rebar like butter with sparks flying. But suddenly, you hear a whooshing sound and you are engulfed in flames. … The OSHA rep talks to you in the burn ward at the hospital and says the tank cap appeared to be leaking when the fire started. … You phone your dad and ask him to call an attorney. Find out your options in this video blog post.
