Passenger compartment fire in parked vehicle

An attorney called on us to investigate an automobile fire in which the driver was burned severely. Using photographs of the vehicle taken shortly after the accident, we were able to pinpoint the source and origin of the fire as an overheated catalytic converter and exhaust pipe, which caused the interior carpeting to ignite. NHTSA files confirmed a disproportionate number of similar incidents in this model, occurring after prolonged engine idle.

The auto manufacturer settled the case during trial.
