A car accident is normally traumatic, but when the element of fire is introduced, the trauma and injuries increase exponentially. Thermal burns can occur if the car catches fire or explodes. These fuel-fed fires, in which unshielded or improperly designed gas tanks may also be at work, increase the amount of personal injury and damage. If it is determined that a car manufacturer is at fault for your burn injury, then the company should be held accountable.
