Have you seen the electric charging stations that have been popping up at various locations over the last few years? Electric vehicles have been around for a while now, but they are rapidly growing in popularity. However, we know that these vehicles pose certain risks when they are involved in a crash. In some cases, they are a risk to their passengers without a crash even happening.
At Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman, we are here when you need a Beaver County electric car accident attorney. Let us help you secure the compensation you deserve.
While we know that electric vehicles have been around, we also know that manufacturers are constantly working to improve the technologies used in the vehicles in order to extend their battery life and range. Even though electric vehicles only make up a small percentage of the total market right now in the US, that is expected to change rapidly over the coming decade.
These vehicles have had major problems on the roadways so far, and the issues usually revolve around the batteries. These are seriously powerful batteries that have been known to catch fire in the absence of a crash, sometimes while a driver is driving down the road.
Electric vehicles pose different risks to first responders and Tesla, the main electric vehicle manufacturer in the country, has published guidelines to emergency personnel about how to handle their vehicles that are involved in crashes.
This is not good, especially if you are the one in danger. Whether you are an electric vehicle driver or have been struck by an electric vehicle, you should not have the added danger of a major fire or explosion.
In the aftermath of an electric vehicle crash, we see many of the same injuries as regular vehicle crashes:
However, with these crashes, we also have a real risk of severe burn injuries. All of these injuries require immediate medical attention. For severe cases, the costs to the victim can reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical expenses alone. If a person cannot work or needs rehabilitation, they could love the income they need to support themselves and their families.
We know that vehicle crashes are a reality, but what happens when an electric vehicle is involved? These vehicles are relatively new to the roadways and we need to be sure that they are completely safe. If you or a loved one have sustained an injury due to an incident with an electric vehicle, Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman is ready to help.
