Negligence suits against Dassel's Petroleum

Saturday, December 19th, 2009

I may just contact the plaintiff attorneys in these cases to see if my testimony might help.

I can verify Dassel’s Petroleum’s complete lack of action or concern regarding propane leaks.

Dassel's Petroleum Sued for Propane Tank Explosion that kills man

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Found this on the Fresno Superior Court web site.

Maybe it’s time to create a “” site ūüėČ

I’ve included relevant sections below:

On May 11, 2007 an explosion occurred at Harris
Farms, Inc. located at 21960 S. Fresno-Coalinga Highway
in Coalinga.  The  explosion caused the death of
Alfonso Quevedo
.  It also caused substantial
to adjacent property owned by Harris-Woolf
California Almonds.    The  explosion  was
allegedly caused by the leaking of a propane tank
just after re-fueling.

On January 9, 2009 Nationwide Agribusiness Insurance
Company, the insurer for Harris Farms filed a complaint
in  subrogation  against  Dassel’s Petroleum, Inc. as Case
No. 09 CECG 00071.  The insurer is seeking to recover
the sum of $2,165,874.62, representing the amount it
paid to its insured for damages incurred to the real and
personal property caused by the explosion. This case is
set for trial on June 14, 2010.  On April 29, 2009 the heirs
of Alfonso Quevedo filed a complaint against Harris Fresh,
Inc., Harris Farms, Inc. and Dassel’s Petroleum, Inc. as Case
No. 09 CECG 01486.  That complaint alleges causes of
action for negligence against both Harris  Farms  and
premises liability against Harris Farms alone and
‚Äúsurvivorship‚ÄĚ against both Harris Farms and Dassel‚Äôs.
A trial date has not been set in that case.

Dassels Petroleum Just Doesn't Care

Friday, December 4th, 2009

So, it’s been over a year now since my problems with Dassels and not once have they attempted to contact me to resolve the problems I had or to even get details on the issue.

I’ve chatted with several others that have had problems with Dassels Petroleum, some who have posted their experiences and some that have not.

The one thing  in common with every single one is Dassels complete indifference to the problem.

Customers that complain are ignored, blown off, or told they can go somewhere else if they don’t like the service. Dassels wouldn’t even respond to me until I posted my experiences to the Internet and then it was only to threaten and lie.

Dassels just doesn’t care!

I’ve also heard from people that say they’ve been customers of Dassels Petroleum for years and have never had a problem. I’m sure most customers don’t have problems. I just hope these people never do because, chances are, they’re going to be treated with indifference also.

Dassels may have pretty good service, but problem resolution doesn’t exist.
