Car Fires and Explosions
A car accident is jarring enough, but when car fires and explosions are involved, they can lead to serious, painful injuries, partial or permanent disability, or even death. Recently, Tesla fires have garnered headlines, but they are just one example. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) cites more than 172,000 car fires annually – one every three minutes. The causes are many, but they are often triggered by worn or faulty parts.
Manufacturer liability can be an important component of a well-argued burn-injury case. However, large manufacturers often have well-funded legal teams. To fight back, you need representation that pairs dedication with a true understanding of the law.
