Suit Filed in Brazoria County, Texas Against Ford

Rob Ammons has filed suit on behalf of a 73-year-old Texas woman who sustained a traumatic brain injury when the 2004 Explorer Sport Trac in which she was a passenger rolled over following the disablement of a rear tire.

Rob Ammons claims in the lawsuit that Ford designed the Sport Trac in a way that, when a rear tire experiences a sudden disablement, the vehicle’s handling is severely degraded. Under such conditions, the Sport Trac’s rear axle vibrates, causing rear-end breakaway or “skate,” a condition that turns the Sport Trac into an oversteer vehicle that is virtually uncontrollable by the driver.

It is also claimed in the lawsuit that the Sport Trac’s roof is weak and incapable of withstanding the vehicle’s weight in a rollover crash without deforming significantly and compromising the occupants’ survival space.
