Rob Ammons Files Suit for Victims of Double-Fatality Crash Caused by Tread Separation of a Sumitomo Tire

On behalf of the seriously injured driver and the survivors of two children who were killed in an Arizona crash, The Ammons Law Firm has filed a lawsuit against several Sumitomo Tire entities. These members of a Nevada family were traveling in their Toyota Camry when the tread on the car’s right rear tire separated from the carcass. The sudden tire failure caused the car to collide with a tractor-trailer traveling on the same roadway.

Car Accident Tire Separation Tread

The tire that failed was a Falken Sincera SN828 which Rob Ammons claims in the lawsuit was defectively designed, manufactured and sold by Sumitomo. Ammons contends the tire: had inadequate fatigue resistance; was not sufficiently durable; was designed without a full nylon cap ply which is known to resist or prevent tread separation failures; had components that were not properly bonded together; had an insufficient inner liner; and was built from materials with chemical compositions that were not robust.

“When safer alternative designs and proper manufacturing processes are known but not used, such irresponsible tire companies must be held accountable when deadly tire disablements result,” says Ammons.

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, air bag defects and plant explosions.
