Vehicle Fires in Georgia
Vehicle fires are a tragic situation. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, vehicle fires make up 16.5% of all fire-related fatalities in the state of Georgia. Vehicle fires can result from faulty equipment included during manufacturing.
Under normal circumstances, vehicles are designed to transfer drivers, passengers, and their cargo from location to location. Lately, we have heard about numerous vehicles having faulty or defective parts.
Having defective parts in a vehicle can wreak havoc for drivers, often resulting in fires and other dangerous circumstances. These circumstances can result in major injuries and, in extreme cases, death. People should not fear using products and they should never be made victims by them either.
