A vehicle fire can cause injuries or even death in car accidents where victims should have walked away unscathed or survived. Such fires affecting vehicles can be the result of electrical or fuel-related catalysts, usually due to a form of manufacturing defect or design flaw.
When it comes to an electrical fire, the danger usually lies in the dashboard. With fuel-related fires, the fire often begins under the vehicle and spreads because of the leaking gas. In some cases, this can even result in an explosion.
Preventing vehicle fires from happening should be one of the most, important parts of a manufacturer’s duty. This is unfortunately untrue, and not all manufacturers take the proper safety precautions to prevent fires from happening. Choosing to prioritize the bottom line over life-saving precautions is unacceptable.
