Typical Causes of Car Fires and Explosions
Car accidents cause almost 3 million injuries per year in the United States. In certain cases, the danger can be even greater after the accident than in the moment that it occurs. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and condition of the car, an automobile may be at risk of catching fire or exploding. When this happens, the car suffers far greater damage and the people inside and around the vehicle are in danger of a number of things, including being burned by the flames or hit with shrapnel from an explosion.
If you or someone you love was seriously injured in a car accident involving fire or an explosion, another party may be responsible. Some car fires are due to car malfunctions or flawed design. In these cases, the manufacturer could be found responsible. In other cases, the accident could have been prevented by careful driving, and the other driver may be held liable.
