Firefighters extinguish car fire following mechanical fault

Fire crews had to be called to put out a burning car after a mechanical fault caused it to ignite.

Firefighters from Stockport station attended the scene in Vernon Park in Stockport at around 8.20pm yesterday (Sunday) following reports from a motorist that his engine was on fire.

According to a spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, the vehicle's bonnet and engine bay were completely destroyed in the blaze. Firefighters had to wear specialist breathing apparatus in order to tackle the blaze.

Claims as the result of a mechanical fault

If you have been left in a serious condition and in need of medical attention following a mechanical failure with your vehicle, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. When it comes to making a claim for an incident such as this, then the most likely person who would be at fault would be the manufacturer or even a garage where your vehicle is serviced. A mechanical fault in a vehicle can lead to a number of incidents, with a fire being perhaps one of the most dangerous outcomes possible. A fire could result in the vehicle becoming unusable, while the risks it poses to your health are unthinkable, as you could lose your life or be seriously injured in the majority of cases.
