Preventing Liquefied Petroleum Gas claims
If it is at all possible it is best to avoid the involvement of a lawyer working for no win, no fee on Thursford claims by avoiding the accident in the first place. The place where the liquefied petroleum gas tank is positioned is a vital part of this. There are several important points to bear in mind when choosing a location:
- Tanks should not be placed next to a boundary wall or fence – you are not in control of what is on the other side of the fence, it may present a hazard to your gas tank.
- Tanks should not be near to a building – do not erect new buildings next to a tank.
- You should consult your supplier of liquefied petroleum gas (the company that comes to fill the tank) for up to date guidance.
- Vegetation (plants) should not be allowed to grow up around the tank – regular maintenance is needed to cut back undergrowth and shrubbery. Keep ornamental plants away from the gas tank.
