How Car Crashes Can Result in Burn Injuries

There are many different ways that car crashes can result in burn injuries. Hot metal, steam, and fire can all cause thermal burn injuries to car accident victims—which may lead to permanent scars or even deep tissue damage.

If fuel is spilled as a result of a crash impact, it can combust and cause catastrophic injuries. But even if fuel is not spilled and there is no fire, car accident victims can be burned if their skin comes into contact with a vehicle’s hot metal surfaces—or if steam or hot water emerges from their car’s damaged radiator.

Chemical burns can also occur during car accidents. When airbags are deployed, they release high-temperature gases such as nitrogen and carbon dioxide, and they also produce sodium hydroxide. Consequently, airbags can cause serious chemical or thermal burns to car accident victims.

After Burn Accident Injuries due to Car Crashes

If a fire broke out during your car accident in central Texas, it is important to conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of the fire. There are extensive fuel system regulations in place through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to limit the possible amount of fuel spillage in case of a collision. If the car’s fuel containment system failed, you may have grounds for a lawsuit against the car manufacturer. And if other car systems failed or proved to be defective, you may have grounds for a lawsuit against the parts manufacturer or designer as well.

The next step is to find a lawyer who specializes in burn injury claims in the state where your burn accident occurred and set up a consultation as soon as possible.
