When a vehicle fire occurs, it’s important that the responsible party pays for the damage. It’s important to understand that the responsible party is rarely the vehicle owner. In most cases, it’s the manufacturer, and Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath will fight for you so you will get compensated for everything you have to go through due to the fire.
