Automakers design vehicles to prevent them from catching fire when a crash occurs. But despite emerging technology, electrical malfunctions and defects can leave occupants in a vehicle that has experienced a crash, vulnerable to an electrical fire. While they may have been able to escape a vehicle with few or minor accidents, some victims of car accidents where an electrical fire occurs may not be able to escape the flames in time.
