Product Defect Attorney Rob Ammons Files Suit Against Nissan

On behalf of a Texas man who sustained catastrophic injuries when the Altima in which he was riding was involved in a crash, Rob Ammons has filed suit against Nissan.  The lawsuit cites defects in the 2013 Altima for those injuries.

The man, who was wearing his seatbelt, was sitting in the front passenger seat which was reclined.  When the Altima was contacted on the driver’s side by a pickup, it spun and traveled sideways into a traffic pole.  The man suffered a fractured skull, traumatic brain injury and internal organ lacerations in the crash.

Car Accident

In the lawsuit, Rob Ammons claims the Altima is defective because its front passenger seat can be used in an unsafe reclined position while the car is in motion.  “This defect has caused preventable injuries to front-seat passengers for decades,” says Ammons.  It is also alleged that the Altima’s seat belts do not maintain an occupant safely within a reclined seat in the event of a crash, and the side impact airbag does not protect a passenger sitting in a reclined seat.

Along with Nissan, the drivers of the vehicles involved in the collision are also defendants in the lawsuit for negligently causing the crash.

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.
