General Motors to Compensate Man Paralyzed in Rollover Crash

The Ammons Law Firm has successfully obtained compensation from General Motors for a Texas man, 38, who was paralyzed in a rollover crash.

Rollover Wreck

The man was the seatbelted front passenger of a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro when the driver lost control of the vehicle, which veered into a ditch and flipped over. The lawsuit filed by The Ammons Law Firm claimed the Camaro was equipped with a seat belt system that failed to hold the man snug against the seat in the crash. The firm further alleged a safer design, called an all-belts-to-seat design, had been used by carmakers including General Motors in other vehicles, and the absence of this system resulted in undesired movement of the man’s body in the collision which caused his disastrous injuries.

In the wreck, the man’s spinal cord was damaged when his pelvis slammed down into the seat.

The man’s diagnosis is now incomplete paraplegia, and he’s left with worries he will be unable to protect his wife and three children in an emergency or care for them the way he once did.

The firm sought economic and human damages from GM. The man has already incurred $445,000 in medical expenses to treat his injuries, and a medical expert projected the costs of necessary future treatment and services at $4.6 million.

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