The Hazards of Electrical Fires and Explosions
If the electrical system in an automobile is not properly wired or the batteries are improperly secured, dangerous fires or explosions may occur. These defects pose very serious health and safety risks for anyone in a vehicle. Even if they are not directly injured by a fire or explosion, failures of the electrical system can compromise a driver’s ability to control a vehicle. This loss of control may cause a collision, which, in turn, may cause significant injuries.
You may be able to seek financial compensation for medical bills and other damages attributable to a defective electrical system in your automobile. To learn more about your legal rights and options, contact the Waukesha auto defect lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874.
The Risk of Electrical Emergencies
Certain problems may arise due to an electric system defect that can ignite a fire or cause an explosion. Some of these problems may include the following:
- Leakage of battery chemicals, causing overheating or corrosion
- Improperly connected battery cables, resulting in sparks
- Poorly protected wires
- Chemical explosions from defective batteries
A manufacturer should not allow these mistakes to occur, but many vehicles are released that do have some of these defects present. If a person is injured as a result, a civil lawsuit may be appropriate.
If your vehicle contained dangerously malfunctioning parts that caused an electrical fire or battery explosion, we can help you to explore the possible benefits of a civil lawsuit.
