A car crash can leave drivers and passengers with many sorts of different injuries. Depending on the impact, fires can ensue which can result in burn injuries to drivers and passengers of the vehicle. A severe burn can forever impact the life of the burned victim.
In some car crashes, a fire is started because of the leaking of flammable fluids from the engine block or the gasoline fuel tank or fuel line. These fires can be started on impact because of mechanical failures of vehicle or defects in the safe design of the vehicle. In addition to a claim against the negligent party in a crash like this, the burn injuries that are suffered by drivers and passengers because of the automotive defects in manufacture or design may allow to a claim against the car manufacturer for product liability, breach of warranty and negligence.
In car accidents or motorcycle accidents, burns to the body may be caused by fire, chemical exposure or even electrical shock. The three most common types of burns are chemical burns, electrical burns and thermal burns. Burns to the body can be very serious in fact, can be deadly. Burn injuries are treated with removal of the damaged tissue. This is done to permit the skin to heal itself. Sometimes the skin is so badly damaged that skin grafting is required.
