Suit Filed Against GM for Driver Who Lost His Leg in Uncrashworthy Vehicle

The Ammons Law Firm filed suit on behalf of a man whose life has been forever changed. While traveling in a 2005 Chevrolet C2500 truck, the man was hit head-on by a vehicle that crossed the centerline, causing an accident. Attorney Rob Ammons alleges that the Chevrolet truck in which he was driving was negligently designed and manufactured, specifically that the truck’s front structure failed to provide proper lower extremity protection. Due to the negligent actions by Chevrolet, the man suffered serious injuries, including a below the knee amputation of his right leg.

Wrecked Truck

Rob Ammons alleges in the lawsuit the truck was defective in that it lacked a proper subframe ahead of the front wheels and that structural components of the truck were inadequate to manage the collision energy created by the crash.

The loss of a limb is one of the most devastating and traumatic injuries a person can face. The injuries and the loss of his leg have cost our client his future in the workforce industry, a devastating blow to being able to provide his family with financial stability.
