Ford Lawsuit Filed After Rollover

Tire Defect Lawyer Files Lawsuit Against Ford Motor Company and Michelin After Rollover Injures Young Child

February 7, 2011 Houston, TX: Tire defect lawyer Rob Ammons filed a lawsuit on behalf of a young boy after the 2000 Ford Explorer he was riding in rolled over when a rear tire failed catastrophically.

“Ford Motor company should have known the 2000 Ford Explorer was prone to rollover in the event of a rear tire failure,” says Ammons in the lawsuit. “Michelin North America also should have incorporated alternative designs and testing on its tires that could have greatly reduced the likelihood of tread and belt separation. Their failure to do so has resulted in a near fatal brain injury for Darren Mackey.”

The lawsuit also names Bubba Hill Auto Plaza, Inc. the company that sold the Ford Explorer. The lawsuit states that Bubba Hill should have known the 2000 Explorer was prone to loss of control and/or rollover and its handling and stability characteristics demonstrated an unreasonable risk of rollover and resulting injury or death.

Rob Ammons is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, in addition to being Board Certified in Civil Law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Rob Ammons’ law practice, The Ammons Law Firm is located in Houston, Texas.
