Attorney Rob Ammons Files Suit Against Toyota after Car Fire Kills Five

On behalf of surviving family members of five people killed when their car burst into flames, Rob Ammons has filed suit against Toyota. The lawsuit cites defects in a 4Runner for the victims’ deaths.

While traveling on a Victoria County, Texas highway one summer evening, the 4Runner left the road for unknown reasons. It struck an embankment, rolled onto its roof and caught fire. Fully engulfed in flames, responders could not reach the occupants and all perished.

In the lawsuit, Rob Ammons claims that the fuel system of the 4Runner was defective, unable to maintain its integrity in this crash, and caused the fire that killed each of the SUV’s occupants.

The Ammons Law Firm has a nationwide personal injury practice focusing on tire defects, truck accidents, rollovers, consumer protection and product liability, catastrophic injury, wrongful death, post-collision fires, seat belt defects, airbag defects, and plant explosions.
