Atlanta Tesla Battery Fire Injury & Death Lawyer

In recent years, Tesla has become one of the most recognizable and successful electric car manufacturers in the world. However, despite the numerous benefits of electric cars, they are not without their potential dangers, and this was made clear by a series of accidents involving Tesla vehicles in Georgia.



In 2018, two separate incidents occurred within weeks of each other in Atlanta, both involving Tesla vehicles that caught fire after collisions. The first incident occurred on April 28th, when a Model S sedan crashed into a tree and burst into flames, killing the driver. Just a few weeks later, on May 8th, another Model S collided with a wall and also caught fire, resulting in serious injuries to the driver.

These incidents sparked an investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to determine the cause of the fires. The investigation found that the battery pack in the Tesla Model S vehicles had been damaged during the accidents, leading to thermal runaway and subsequent fires. The NTSB also noted that emergency responders had difficulty extinguishing the fires, due in part to the design of the battery pack.

The NTSB made several recommendations to Tesla as a result of their investigation, including improving the design of the battery pack to make it easier to extinguish fires and developing better safety features to prevent thermal runaway in the event of an accident. Tesla has since made changes to the design of their vehicles and battery packs in response to these recommendations.

The incidents in Atlanta also led to a series of lawsuits against Tesla, with plaintiffs alleging that the company was aware of the potential dangers of their vehicles but failed to adequately warn customers or implement appropriate safety measures. The lawsuits were ultimately settled out of court, with Tesla agreeing to pay an undisclosed sum to the plaintiffs.

Despite these incidents, Tesla continues to be a popular choice for electric car buyers, with many praising the company's innovative design and commitment to sustainability. However, it is important to remember that all vehicles carry some degree of risk, and it is up to manufacturers and drivers alike to take steps to minimize those risks and ensure the safety of everyone on the road.
