Ford Compensates California Man Paralyzed in Rollover Crash

Ford will pay a 59-year-old California man who was rendered quadriplegic when the 2004 Expedition he was driving was forced off the road by another driver, resulting in a rollover.

Although he was wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash, the man’s head moved outside the safer confines of his SUV, and he suffered a C7/T1 fracture-dislocation with acute spinal cord trauma resulting in permanent C7 quadriplegia.  Rob Ammons claimed in the lawsuit that defects in the Expedition’s rollover protection system and Ford’s negligence in its design were to blame for the paralyzing injury which has already cost over $1 Million to treat with another $3 Million in expenses projected to be necessary for future treatment and life care.
