A fuel-fed fire may be the result of a defect, improper installation or many other reasons. It may lead to serious and life-threatening injuries for anyone in or near the vehicle at the time of the accident.
Fuel-fed fires can lead to injuries such as:
- severe burns, disfigurement and permanent scarring, due to the fire and extreme heat surrounding the car;
- broken bones, skull fractures, head trauma, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries, from projectile objects or if thrown from the car;
- lacerations due to shattered glass or being thrown from the car; and
If you’ve been the victim of a fuel-fed fire, it’s important to consider filing a product liability claim to recoup your costs. You could be facing expensive bills for medical treatments and prescriptions, as well as lost income, pain, mental anguish and suffering.
