Helping You Recover Compensation for Injuries Suffered in a Vehicle Explosion or Fire

A motor vehicle is an amazing machine that can carry you safely from place to place for years. But the basic concept behind a combustion engine is a controlled fire/explosion. When the carelessness or negligence of another person changes the way your vehicle runs so that fire or explosion is no longer controlled, you can easily be at risk of serious injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in a vehicle fire or explosion, you want an experienced lawyer to fight for your rights.

We will keep you in the loop at all times, helping you understand all the developments in your case, as well as your options, so that you can make good decisions about how you want to proceed.

Our Representation in Vehicle Explosion or Fire Cases

When you hire us to help you pursue damages for injuries suffered in a vehicle fire or explosion, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts of your case so that we can attempt to identify all potential causes of the fire or explosion. We will look at:

  • The possibility that your vehicle had a dangerous or defective component that caused the incident. We will look at the design and manufacture of all components that may have contributed to the fire or explosion.
  • Whether the fire or explosion resulted from negligence by a service station or mechanic who worked on your car, or whether a vehicle repair service should have discovered the potential risk of fire or explosion, but did not or failed to warn you.
  • Whether the fire or explosion was caused by the negligence of another driver, either in a collision or because their actions caused you to lose control of your vehicle.

We take cases involving all types of serious and catastrophic loss, including burns, brain and spinal cord injury, paralysis, broken bones, and amputation or loss of limb. We also litigate wrongful death claims. We will help you secure full and fair compensation for all your losses, including lost wages and income, the costs of medical care, physical pain and suffering, and loss of consortium or companionship.
