Q: My bmw car caught fire whilst driving on the outside lane.
A: Hi. Did you report the incident to the fire or police department? Do you have a report? What did they say caused the fire? Thank you.
I hope you were not injured. There wasn't a question here, but if you're asking about your legal rights, more information would be necessary. What caused the fire, as raised by Mr. Gresham, is a key issue. Was the fire related to any recall? If a component was determined to cause the fire, were there instances of it failing in other vehicles? Do the vehicle's maintenance records reveal anything relevant to the cause of the fire? With additional information, a product liability attorney could make a more complete assessment here. Good luck
