The Danger of Electric System Fires in Automobiles

The electronic systems in modern motor vehicles are a crucial part of the vehicle’s basic operation. However, poorly constructed or connected electrical systems can create extremely dangerous problems for drivers. In fact, an electric system that malfunctions due to catastrophic problems may set fire or even explode.

If you have been hurt as a result of an electronic system failure or vehicular electrical fire, you may be able to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. For more information about your full range of legal options, contact the Denver auto defect lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770.

Causes of Electrical System Fires

Defects within a vehicle’s electrical system can be very dangerous for a motorist. Not only does a fire or explosion present a serious risk for injury, but the loss of the electrical system will render the affected vehicle generally inoperable. In particular, the loss of power steering and brakes can lead to destructive accidents.

The following defects may trigger an electrical system fire or explosion:

  • Battery defects allowing combustible gases to build freely
  • Cable covers improperly mounted
  • Battery chemical leaks, leading to fires or chemical explosions
  • Improperly wired electrical systems

These fires are extremely hazardous for a driver, as the risk of an explosion is increased drastically due to the close-by presence of gasoline and other explosive liquids or gases.
