Electric car accident

Electric cars are growing in popularity as time passes. We have gotten the technology to be able to use cars without gasoline or oil, as these cars run purely on an electrical battery. While they certainly have their upsides, such as being more environmentally friendly and quieter, their battery has caused injuries to people in the past in various ways. If you or a loved one were injured in an electric car accident, contact us for a free consultation to see if you may be entitled to compensation.

What kinds of accidents and injuries can occur?

Electric car accidents can occur in a typical car accident or pedestrian accident when two collide. The injuries that are sustained depend on the force of the impact, anything from bruising to death. However, for electric cars, a more specific accident that occurs with them is fires and chemical leakage. After a collision, an electric car’s battery may become damaged which can result in spontaneous fires or severe electric shocks. These types of accidents can cause third-degree burns and even death. Also, this damaged battery may leak harmful chemicals that can be hazardous to people’s health, causing chemical burns or other injuries. Electric car computers can also malfunction due to defects, which can cause the driver to lose control of the car.

Who is liable?

Negligence is the basis of these types of accident lawsuits. Negligence occurs when one party breaches the duty of care that they owe to others on the road and injuries directly resulting from the accident. When the accident occurs between an electric car and another car or pedestrian, it would be best to have an attorney on your side to investigate the scene to discover who showed negligence by not obeying the law and rules of the road. If the accident occurred due to a fire or chemical leak from a damaged battery, the car’s manufacturer can be held responsible due to their negligence in failing to take measures to prevent that from occurring. The same goes for design defects, as they were negligent by releasing a flawed product to the public.
