While car accidents can be frightening and traumatic enough, there are

result in large fires and explosions, commonly known as post-collision fires.

and post-collision fire that was caused a negligent party in Texas, our

the complexities of the legal system. Let us fight for you while you make

Investigating a Post-Collision Fire
An impact with another vehicle or object can lead to catastrophic injuries,
but a post-collision fire can add even greater harm. According to the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately
228,000 people were killed in car accident fires between 1979 and 1986.
Injuries caused by fires or serious burns after typically more significant
than common car accident injuries, such as whiplash or broken bones.
Unfortunately, car accidents involving fires are difficult – sometimes
nearly impossible – to investigate because of severe charring. If
the accident was caused by a defective fuel system, our
Austin car accident attorneys are ready to investigate vehicles of that specific make and model to determine
if defects were apparent.
