Fuel-Fed Fires Injury Lawyer

Have you or a loved one been a victim of a fuel-fed fire injury? Ligori & Ligori is a Tampa Personal Injury Law Firm that represents those injured by another’s negligence. Fuel-fed fire injuries can be particularly serious so having an experienced injury lawyer on your side is important.

Most vehicles use a combustion engine, requiring gas or diesel for fuel. The same energy that fuels the engine can also be dangerous in the case of a fire. If a fuel leak occurs or the fuel tank is damaged, vehicles can burst into flames, causing severe injuries and death. Fuel-fed vehicle injury accidents are often caused by defective components or poor design on the part of the manufacturer. If this is the case, they may be liable for injuries caused by a fuel-fed fire.

Since gas and diesel are highly combustible, there are strict regulations on how the fuel system and tanks must be designed. There must be precautions in place to limit the chance of damaging the fuel tank in a collision or placing it in an area that can expose it to excessive heat. A fuel-fed fire is extremely dangerous, causing a fast, high-heat fire that can be difficult to escape. When manufacturers do not put the safety of consumers first and create a vehicle with risks of fuel tank leaks or explosions, they may be liable for damages caused by these fuel-fed auto fires.

Causes Of Vehicle Fuel-Fed Fires

There are a few safety issues that have occurred over the years with fuel systems that have caused unexpected fuel-fed fires. Some of the most notable manufacturer defect and design problems with the fuel systems include:

  • Fuel tank easily damaged in collision accidents. This includes fuel tanks located near the rear or “side-saddle” fuel tanks that can be hit from the side.
  • Defective design to stop the flow of fuel in the event of a collision
  • Fuel tanks exposed to excessive heat, causing explosions
  • Poor workmanship on fuel system components, resulting in leaks

Fuel-fed fires can be disastrous for occupants in the vehicle, causing severe burns, respiratory damage and death. If you have been injured due to a fuel-fed fire that may have been caused by a design or defect, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law.
