As technology changes and brings us more efficient cars, we have to keep in mind that the anatomy of a car accident also changes. New technologies bring new challenges to the roadway. Our car accident lawyers from Dan Doyle Law Group understand that these vehicles can cause serious injuries in an accident. If you or a loved one have been injured and an electric car was involved, let the Dan Doyle Law Group investigate what happened so we can secure the compensation you truly deserve.
Electric vehicles have been around for a while, but the technology involved has undergone a rapid change over the last few years. These vehicles can now travel hundreds of miles on a single charge. While electric vehicles may be the wave of the future, they still only make up a small percentage of the vehicles on the roadways right now.
We do know that some electric vehicles have had major problems on the roadway. In most of the cases that have been publicized, the electric car’s battery was to blame. The batteries used in electric vehicles are very powerful, and they have been known to catch fire, even in the absence of a crash. Some have caught fire while the vehicle was moving down the road with the driver inside.
Tesla has even said that electric vehicles pose different risks to first responders. They have published guidelines to emergency personnel about how to handle a crash involving one of their vehicles. Whether you are in an electric vehicle or have been struck by one, the last thing you should have to worry about is the added danger that a battery will pose.
