Car Fires and Explosions

Experienced Attorneys Helping Victims Across the United States

Auto accidents account for nearly 3 million injuries a year. Depending on the circumstances, a car may catch fire or explode. After this occurs, the car suffers expensive damage, and the occupants may be severely burned or worse.

Causes of Car Fires and Explosions

There are various reasons behind car fires and explosions. Design flaws make conditions ripe for fires. For instance, electrical system failures are often associated with car fires. Faulty wiring in ignition systems may short and spark fires. A faulty battery may also be to blame. When a battery is not designed correctly, corrosion may form on terminals, which is highly flammable. During common accidents, airbags may detonate and lead to explosions as well.

Ruptured fuel lines and punctured gas tanks are the most common reasons for car fires. All fuel tanks should be placed in front of vehicles’ rear axles and include fuel cell bladders and anti-puncture shields. It is essential to avoid brackets and other sharp objects in the area of the fuel tanks. When car makers fail to follow these precautions, defective fuel systems may be to blame for car fires.

Injuries Caused by Car Fires and Explosions

Vehicle fires are very dangerous. They may result in serious burns or death. The extreme heat and toxic gases released can cause extensive scarring. Burns are painful and may require long hospital stays. Severe burns may affect breathing, digestion, and other bodily functions as well. Victims may need skin graft surgeries and pain management treatments.

Who is Responsible for Car Fires?

When car fires are related to negligent manufacturing designs or defects, car companies are responsible for resulting injuries. If car manufacturers fail to order recalls for dangerous issues, they must be held accountable. It is important to make these large corporations pay adequate compensation for victims’ pain and suffering.
