Car Accident Burn Injuries

Bakersfield Car Accident Attorney

Burns are a possibility in any car accident, if the collision starts a fire, causes an explosion or if mechanical failure or a defective auto part causes a fire while an occupant is in the vehicle. Not only may a driver or passenger be at risk of burn injury in the event of a vehicle fire, but any person that attempts to render assistance may also be at risk of injury.

Have you suffered burn injury in a car accident? Our law firm represents burn injury victims throughout Bakersfield who sustained their injuries in vehicle fires. In addition to handling cases of this kind related to car accidents, we also take on claims involving defective products. A Bakersfield car accident attorney  at our offices can talk to you about what you have gone through and what party may be held accountable for your injuries. This may be the driver that caused the accident, the manufacturer of a defective auto part or even both. Regardless of who should be held liable, our goal will be to recover the maximum amount of financial compensation allowable in your particular case.

About Vehicle Fires

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) there were 258,000 vehicle fires in 2007, resulting in 385 deaths. Although 75% of roadway vehicle fires are caused by mechanical failure or other malfunctions, vehicle fires caused by traffic collisions account for 60% of fatalities. Approximately one-third of burn injuries of this kind occurred when the victims of a car accident or vehicle fire attempt to fight the blaze without the help of emergency personnel.
