What Causes Car Fires?
on November 25, 2019

In the past few years, many manufacturers have been recalling their car models due to various defects such as a faulty transmission, dangerous airbags and the propensity to spontaneously combust. While we may not be mechanics, it is easy to see that the possibility of your car to catch on fire definitely constitutes a recall and classification of a lemon. If your vehicle has had car fires due to a defective vehicle, you might have the right to file a lemon law claim. A valid lemon law claim can earn you a brand new car, the same make and model of the car you currently have or the cash value of your old car.

Common Issues That Lead to Car Fires

Car fires can happen in several different ways because it depends specifically on how the car is manufactured. However, some common examples of how car fires start include:

  • Gas tubes leaking and dripped highly flammable gasoline
  • Oil leaks
  • Damage to the engine from oil circulation misfunction
  • Bad electrical components within the car
  • Mechanical failure or malfunction

Who Is At Fault For A Vehicle Fire

The cause of the fire will help determine who is legally liable for any damage or injuries sustained in the fire. For example, if you installed a third-party electronic device such as a radio which then caused an electrical fire, it is not the fault of the manufacturers. However, if the manufacturers sold a car that has a faulty battery in your hybrid car which in turn caused a fire – then the responsibility will fall onto the manufacturer.

Why Should You Contact A Lawyer

While a personal injury lawyer might be able to help you get money from your insurance company to help cover the costs of any personal or property damage, if you were sold a defective car you have legal rights under consumer law.
