Car Fires and Negligence

Fires present a significant danger to motorists trapped inside their vehicle or exposed to a sudden, unexpected fire. These fires may be caused by a variety of safety concerns, which are often preventable. If a vehicle manufacturer or other party fails to take the appropriate steps to avoid these dangerous mechanical errors, their negligence may make them responsible for whatever injuries victims sustain.

How Negligence May Cause Car Fires

Car fires are particularly dangerous because of the tight spaces inside a vehicle compartment, which can quickly fill with smoke or other toxic fumes, and the widespread presence of highly flammable solids and liquids inside the vehicle. These fires may be caused by the following safety failures:

  • Battery explosions causing flammable substance ignition
  • Catastrophic engine failures
  • Ignition of a car following a collision
  • Poor vehicle maintenance by a vehicle owner

Whether caused by a vehicle manufacturer or owner’s negligence, when other people are injured in a vehicular fire that was the result of someone else’s irresponsibility, the victim may be able to pursue financial compensation for their losses.
