Cooper Tire Compensates Four Injured in Tread Separation Rollover

A personal injury lawsuit brought on behalf of four California residents has been successfully concluded by The Ammons Law Firm. The four friends were headed out of town for a weekend trip when the right rear tire on their SUV came apart. The sudden tire failure caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle which then rolled over, seriously injuring the occupants.

The tire that failed and caused the crash was a Futura Scrambler RVR designed and manufactured by Cooper Tire & Rubber Company. The lawsuit filed by Rob Ammons claimed that Cooper failed to utilize designs, materials, and processes that would have made the tire better able to resist tread separation. According to Ammons, there was foreign material cured into the tire’s rubber, the existence of which prevented the tire’s internal components from bonding strongly to each other.

“This marks the end of a long journey to justice for these clients. It’s reassuring to know that they have been compensated for their losses,” says Ammons.

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.

The Ammons Law Firm’s practice is exclusively personal injury law, handling such cases as tire defects, oil rig explosions, truck accidents, plant explosions, refinery accidents, wrongful death, post-collision fires, seat belt defects, airbag defects, SUV rollovers, and workplace negligence.
