Trust Experienced Phoenix Car Fire Lawyers to Secure Compensation for Auto Burn Injuries

Representing you after a car accident leads to serious burn injuries

Motor vehicle accidents result from a variety of circumstances and events. The most common causes are negligence or recklessness of individual drivers. Other accidents can be attributed to faulty manufacturing or vehicles with serious design flaws, such as an SUV that is prone to rolling over. A third type of situation is not as commonly thought about, but its consequences can be just as severe. This occurs when the auto manufacturer is not responsible for the actual car crash, but is responsible for injurious events that occur during or right after the crash, including fires that may ignite within the car.

If you or a family member has suffered burn injuries because of a car fire, secure the caring support you deserve and the effective legal representation you will need in the weeks and months ahead. At Plattner Verderame, P.C., our experienced Phoenix car fire injury lawyers have the skill and knowledge to provide you with the highest quality of legal representation. You deserve compensation and we are here to help you secure it.

A thorough investigation by a skilled personal injury law firm

A post-collision fire is one that starts after the impact of the car crash. The National Fire Protection Administration reports that more than 174,000 vehicle fires occurred in 2015, resulting in 445 deaths and 1,550 serious injuries. These incidents also resulted in financial losses of more than $1.2 billion. While the initial impact of a crash can cause serious injury, a post-accident fire can exacerbate the problem, causing additional injuries to involved victims.

For example, a driver is involved in a collision where her car is hit by a delivery truck. The initial impact of the accident breaks her arm and several of her ribs. While she is sitting in the vehicle waiting for medical assistance, a defective fuel line causes her car to burst into flames, resulting in severe burns to half of her body. Under these circumstances, there is a potential lawsuit regarding the initial accident, as well as a potential product liability claim for the faulty fuel line.

Together, our team of skilled Phoenix auto burn lawyers is equipped to handle all aspects of these cases. We have had extensive experience with post-collision engine and fuel line fires involving the following:
