Vehicle Explosions Caused by Auto Defects

Car accidents occur for any number of reasons — missing a stop sign, rollovers on icy roads, cell phone usage. Unfortunately, a growing number of car accidents result in explosions which are the result of fuel system failures. Faulty parts or wiring can lead to a gas tank explosion that seriously injures or kills occupants.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident involving a vehicle explosion, you have the right to pursue legal action. At the New York and New Jersey law offices of Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., we have worked with those injured in car accidents since 1981.

Gas Tank Explosions

In most newer cars and trucks, gas tanks are positioned in a protective spot within the vehicle’s frame. In older vehicles or those not properly designed, gas tanks are mounted outside the frame, leaving them exposed to damage in a collision.

Exploding gas tanks can lead to serious injuries or fatalities in the event of a car accident. Victims who survive are often left with intense burns disfigurement and substantial scarring.
