Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. Pays for Fatal Crash

The Ammons Law Firm obtained compensation for a Texas woman whose 22-year-old son was killed in a single-vehicle crash. The young man, on vacation with friends, was traveling as a rear seat passenger in a Toyota Sequoia when the tread peeled off the SUV’s left rear tire. The sudden tire disablement sent the Sequoia off the road where it struck a tree and rolled over, killing the young man.

The tire that failed was a Wild Spirit Sport H/T claimed by Ammons to be defective as a result of Cooper’s failure to utilize both rubber compounds and design features that would have made the tire stronger and far more resistant to disablement through tread separation.
