Injury Caused by Fuel-Fed Fires
Fuel-Fed Fires occur after a wreck, even a minor one, has occurred. It is estimated that approximately 550 to 1000 people suffer fatal fuel-fed fire injury each year in the United States. Fires are one of the most dangerous aspects to a car wreck with results of death or extensive body burns.
Automobile manufacturers could help prevent these accidents by building the car a certain way. Some of the defects of the car that are responsible for fuel-fed fires include:
- a fuel tank placed to close to parts that can puncture the tank
- defective tank welding
- lack of proper fuel tank protection
- overall poor design
