Florida Motor Vehicle Fire Lawyers

Auto accidents are incredibly traumatizing. They may lead to large medical bills, serious injuries, and a ton of trouble all on their own. However, they aren’t uncommon and they are not always fatal. In too many cases, individuals who survived the initial crashing of their vehicles have died due to entirely preventable motor vehicle fires.

For a motor vehicle fire to occur, three things must be present:

  • Fuel
  • Oxygen
  • A source of ignition

If one of these is missing, a fire cannot spark and a driver’s death may be avoided.

Automobile manufacturers have the responsibility of foreseeing accidents and preventing fire hazards at a common origin: the vehicle’s design and assembly at the factory.

Obviously, vehicle manufacturers have no control over the presence of oxygen in the air. However, high temperatures on manifolds can serve as a simple source of ignition for vehicle fires. Additionally, fuel, transmission fluid, oil, and brake fluid leaks can all serve as a source of fuel for fires.

Faulty designs and cheaply made tanks and tubing for all of these liquids are more than just annoying and pricey to repair; they’re downright deadly under the right conditions. They aren’t the only faults in vehicular design that could lead to death for drivers, though. Faulty wiring, punctured gas tanks, and exhaust system defects are also ways that an automobile manufacturer may fail loyal drivers.

Few things are more frightening than being trapped inside of a burning car. Drivers who were fortunate enough to survive such a situation and the families of those who were not are rightful to seek retribution from the companies that caused it.

Unfortunately, litigation regarding motor vehicle fires may be difficult to navigate. Gathering the proof necessary to win such a case-for example, evidence that an individual died due to the fire, rather than complications from other injuries-requires the collaboration of countless experts in various fields. It is reasonable that the family of someone who suffered from a motor vehicle fire may wish to settle quickly and quietly without dealing with the painful details.
