Tire Defect Lawsuit

Tire Defect Lawsuit

Palm Beach, FLORIDA October 25, 2010: Accident attorney Rob Ammons of The Ammons Law Firm has filed a lawsuit against Ford Motor Company, Michelin Tire North America and Al Packer West, Inc. car dealership on behalf of Debra Robinson.  Robinson was left incapacitated when her car rolled over in an accident.

Robinson was driving a 2000 Ford Explorer when it rolled over after the left rear tire failed.  Defects in the tire rendered it uncontrollable and it rolled over during the accident that resulted.
"Ford Motor Company knew or should have known the 2000 Explorer vehicle line was defective and unreasonably dangerous. " says Ammons. "Additionally, Michelin North America knew or should have known the Michelin LTX M/S tire was prone to failure through tread separation.”

Al Packer West, Inc. was also named as a defendant in the suit because they marketed and sold the Ford Explorer while knowing it was prone to loss of control and rollover in the event of a rear tire disablement.
