Car Fire Attorneys Who Fight For You

A variety of factors can lead to a car crash, but when a fire is involved, the cause is often traced to vehicle electrical systems and auto defects. If you’ve been injured in a vehicle fire, out Car Fire Attorneys can help.

Each year, the United States experiences around 190,000 car fires. These fires result in about 300 deaths with over 1,200 injuries to passengers and drivers.

Car Fire Common Causes

Some of the common causes of car fires include poor placement of fuel tanks, defective fuel line materials, improperly designed shut-off valves, cruise control malfunctions and faulty tank designs.

Electrical Fires

Many electric, battery-powered cars have come under scrutiny for battery malfunctions. Some hybrid car batteries, upon impact, can ignite – not unlike what would happen to any other type of battery under pressure. Electric fires in cars are usually due to human error.

Fuel Tank Fires

The design of a vehicle in relation to the fuel tank location has been a long-standing issue among auto manufacturers. Where a fuel tank is located is vital to protecting vehicle occupants from fire dangers associated with explosions and damage to the tank during a collision.

Safer Design

Many car fires are preventable with a few simple modifications that the auto industry fails to implement. To successfully pursue a car fire case, we will work to establish that existed a reasonable and safer alternative design that the automaker failed to use.

Burn Injuries

Victims of post-collision fires, if they survive, will likely live their lives with serious scarring, nerve damage and even loss of limbs. Burn victims often have to relearn how to perform everyday activities such as getting dressed and eating.
