Gas Station Accidents and Injury Lawsuits
Reports from the United States Census bureau indicate that now there exist over 100,000 gas stations in this country. Nearly all of them do business as convenience stores, where drivers can purchase many things from groceries to snacks. With several hundreds of individuals arriving daily, it is unavoidable that some gas station accidents will happen.
Of course, there are a myriad laws dealing with gas station operating procedures, and when customer injuries are at issue, it is the customer who must establish that the gas station was at fault. The law typically states that the gas station owner or operator has a high amount of responsibility to keep their customers safe. This is imputed on them only as to harm that a gas station owner would know about like the hazardous chemicals and equipment. If collisions are frequent on that street, owners may be liable for not putting up barriers.
