Burn Injury Attorney Addresses Burn Injuries Related to Car Fires


Thousands of people suffer burn injuries from car fires each year, many of which could have been prevented. 

  • 1 out of 5 fires involves motor vehicles. 
  • 1 out of 8 fire deaths results from motor vehicle fires.
  • 600 people are killed and 1,200 firefighters are injured a year from motor vehicle fires. 

Car accidents can be catastrophic events, and burn injuries exacerbate the pain and intensify the trauma of it all. Most burn injuries from car accidents are either thermal (burns received from contact with fire, steam, hot liquids, or hot objects) or chemical (when the skin comes in contact with dangerous automotive chemicals).

Burn injuries are extremely painful and can result in: 

  • blisters
  • scarring
  • disfigurement
  • death

Although fires occur in only about three out of every one thousand automobile collisions, each year thousands of people sustain disfiguring or fatal burn injuries in post-collision fires. Many of these can be attributed to dangerous and defective fuel system designs, which are subject to compromise or failure in the event of a collision. Safer fuel systems have been economically available for more than 30 years, but there are still tens of thousands of vehicles on the nation's highways with defective and hazardous fuel systems.

Car fire survivors who suffer burn injuries will have a long road of recovery ahead of them that will center on preventing infection and scarring, managing pain, and learning how to move on with their lives.
