Vehicle fires typically result due to vehicle fuel system defects. Fuel systems are designed to deliver fuel from the fuel tank to the vehicle’s engine. Vehicles today typically carry fuel systems that are designed not to ignite. However, sometimes vehicles are either designed or manufactured with defective fuel systems that can ignite and start a fire in case of an accident.

Vehicle fires can result from all sorts of reasons. Defective fuel systems include defective location of the fuel tank, design of the fuel cap, defective protection of the fuel line and fuel pump, and defective fuel pump switches. If the fuel tank is located in the wrong part of a vehicle or if there is inadequate protection of the vehicle fuel line or fuel pump, a fire can result from an accident if the fuel tank or vehicle fuel line/fuel pump are impacted and affected during the accident. If the design of the fuel cap or fuel pump switches are defective, a vehicle can experience a spontaneous fire.

Vehicle fires can result either before, during or after an accident. Vehicle fires that occur before an accident can occur spontaneously. When they do, they can actually cause an accident if the vehicle drivers are not able to effectively operate the vehicle.

Vehicle fires can also occur during and after an accident. Frequently, the accident itself can affect the fuel system and cause it to ignite. Vehicles are supposed to be designed with fuel systems that won’t ignite even in the case of an accident, but oftentimes this is not the case and vehicle fires may result from an accident. Vehicles can be left in flames after an accident. In many cases, the vehicle fire can cause worse injuries than the accident itself.

Certain vehicles are more susceptible to vehicle fires than others. For example, older vehicles are more prone to ignite. This is true because newer vehicles tend to be designed to better protect their fuel systems.

Further, light trucks and utility vehicles tend to be more susceptible to vehicle fires. Passenger vehicles are supposed to be designed nowadays to protect the passengers and not ignite. However, manufacturers of trucks and utility vehicles are not always so careful, and occupants of those vehicles may unfortunately pay the price.
