Written By: Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, Ruffo & Giuffra LLP
Five women died after their limousine suddenly burst into flames on May 4, 2013. The limousine, a converted 1999 Lincoln Town Car, may not have been constructed safely or inspected properly. In converting the car into a limousine, the company undermined the integrity of the vehicle, leading to system failures that caused the deadly fire. At Rheingold Law, we have handled similar cases in which poor construction or oversight led to damaging and fatal car fires. With the amount of cars on the road, you should be able to be confident that yours is safe. This means holding the companies that make or modify cars accountable. If you or someone you know has been injured as a result of a car fire, please contact our firm. We dispatch experts to secure any evidence, storing vehicles if needed. We document the evidence with video and photographs, as well as fly in experts to do a forensics examination.
