Gas Leaks

Gas Leaks Side Effects Lawsuits Harmful, Serious Health Issues | Without Proper Cleanup, Failure To Disclose Details

Gas Leaks Side Effects May Result In Personal Injury Lawsuits

Gas Leaks | Lawsuits, Lawyers | Side Effects: Harmful, Serious Health Issues | Without Proper Cleanup, Failure To Disclose Details

Gas leaks often pollute and contaminated water supplies within the surrounding areas, both commercial and residential. Gas leaks happen when underground gas pipes at gas stations break. If these gas leaks go weeks without the proper cleanup, many people lives and health are put into harms ways.  Large gas corporations for years have been accused of negligence for allowing these types of leaks to happen, failure to give details of all leaks as soon as they happen, and embellishing all clean up efforts.

Exxon Mobil Corp. and Storto Enterprises Inc. face one of the largest ecological enforcement actions in several U.S. states. In mid January 2006, approximately 25,000 gallons of unleaded regular gas oozed from a small hole drilled in an underground fuel line by a contractor performing maintenance at an Exxon gas station in the Jacksonville vicinity of Baltimore County. As a result, Exxon officials waited almost a full month, until February 17, 2006 to report the gas leak.

A total of 6 commercial and residential wells throughout the Jacksonville area have been contaminated as a result of the gas leak. According to Maryland state officials an additional 62 wells in residential neighborhoods show traces of MTBE (methyl tertiary butyl ether), an additive found in gasoline.
