Post-collision Auto Fires

Car Accident Fire Attorneys

After a collision, automobiles can catch fire when defective or improperly placed fuel systems leak or ignite. As a result, tens of thousands of people are injured or killed by post-auto collision fires in the United States every year. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an average of 29,000 people were involved in car fires every year from 1979 to 1986. While vehicle safety features have dramatically improved since the late 80s, post-collision auto fires can and do still occur with alarming frequency.

If you or your loved one was involved in a post-collision car fire, contact the Houston auto defect attorneys at The Ammons Law Firm to discuss your possible right to compensation. If a faulty fuel system or defective car part caused a post-collision fire, you need an auto defect attorney to help you obtain a financial recovery for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Common Causes of Car Fires

Whether they occur after an accident or simply as a person is driving, car fires are often the result of auto defects. When this is the case, the manufacturer or another liable party can be held accountable for the resulting injuries and/or deaths.

Some of the most common causes of automobile-related fires include:

  • Gasoline leaks caused by defective or poorly designed fuel systems
  • Vehicle rollovers causing flammable components to dislodge
  • Defective/faulty wiring, leading to an electrical fire
  • Defective electric/hybrid vehicle batteries
  • Automobile engine defects, including defective catalytic converters, overheating engines, etc.
  • Design defects, including defects in the design of the vehicle itself

When the negligence of an automobile designer or manufacturer leads to a post-collision fire that causes catastrophic injuries or even fatalities, these negligent parties can and should be held accountable. At The Ammons Law Firm, our Houston automobile fire attorneys have the experience, resources, and dedicated legal focus to aggressively advocate for you and your recovery.
