Why Cars Burst Into Flames
Car fires can be absolutely devastating. The majority of victims are able to escape. A car collision can cause a victim to become trapped in their car after it ignites. Here are some of the more common reasons why car fires take place.
Damaged fuel lines
Ruptured gas tank
Hot exhaust causing other materials to combust
Depending on the facts of any case, a number of entities may face liability after a car fire. A car accident attorney can examine the specific facts of your case and let you know what your rights are.
Liability In Accidents When Cars Catch Fire
Car fires are often symptomatic of neglect. A service provider may have done a poor job repairing a vehicle. Or a car manufacturer may have done a poor job of putting a vehicle together. In General Motors Vs. Anderson, the plaintiffs attorneys successfully won a product liability suit against General Motors. Evidence was presented at trial that General Motors knew their gas tanks were prone to fires but they choose not to do anything about it in order to save on costs. Victims of car accidents may have the ability to file a personal injury claim in order to recover compensation for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.
