Post-Crash Fires

Fuel-fed fires are caused by defective fuel systems that fail to contain gasoline during a collision. When a car overturns in an accident, the fuel system is supposed to stop fuel from leaking out of the car. When this system does not work as intended, the results can be tragic, including serious injuries and wrongful death.

These accidents are especially common in 18 wheeler (tractor trailer) accidents. Freightliner tractors are known to be especially prone to fuel-fed fires. Car models known to have these problems include:

  • Ford Crown Victoria
  • Chevy Malibu
  • Toyota Camry
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee

Many fuel-fed fires result in fatal injuries. Those that survive must contend with months, years, possibly a lifetime of burn injury treatments, including painful skin grafts, infection treatments and reconstructive surgeries.
