One of our consumer law attorneys Karl Leinberger was featured on NBC 5 in a story they ran about two local men who had to shell out for car repairs after unknowingly pumping gas that was tainted with water. Watch the video here.
After heavy rains, the underground holding tanks at a local gas station were contaminated with water, resulting in gas fill-ups that were around 90 percent water. This contaminated gas caused significant problems in the cars that were filled, resulting in expensive repair bills for the unlucky victims.
The gas station manager tried to avoid responsibility, initially not even returning calls from the victims. However, after NBC 5 came knocking, he manned up and got Mobil’s insurance involved for compensation.
Karl Leinberger has dealt with tainted gas cases, and says that it’s not unusual for gas station owners and managers to try to avoid having to pay out any compensation for repair costs incurred by their faulty gas. However, consumer law is on the victim’s side in most cases, and our attorneys are able to help you obtain the best possible outcome.
