Fuel System Defects & Auto Fire Injuries

A defective fuel system can cause a vehicle to catch fire or even explode. When a car’s fuel tank or fuel system catches fire or explodes, the results can be disastrous. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), between 1979 and 1986 there were approximately 228,000 victims of vehicle fires. Even worse, the burns a victim suffers from an automotive fuel fire are often more serious than those injuries they received as a result of the actual collision. In fact, 26% of all car crash victims who lost their lives as a result of their burns would have suffered none, or minimal injuries, from the crash if there had been no fire. If the fuel system were not defective, these victims may have been able to walk away from the vehicle with minor injuries.
