Cooper Tire Compensates Victim of Tread Separation Crash

Rob Ammons has successfully concluded a product defect lawsuit filed against Cooper Tire & Rubber Company on behalf of a 30-year-old man who was severely injured when the 1995 Ford Bronco he was the passenger in rolled over, due to the Pro Comp Xterrain tire separating from the carcass.

Tire Defect

It was alleged in the lawsuit that the Pro Comp Xterrain tire was defective because it was designed by Cooper without safety features (namely, a nylon cap ply) that have been shown to be effective countermeasures to tread separations and was manufactured in a manner that did not achieve proper bonding of the tire’s components.

The man suffered serious injuries requiring five surgeries and he will endure chronic pain, permanent nerve damage and residual impairments for the remainder of his life. At The Ammons Law Firm, we’re pleased that we could secure a positive outcome for our client and ensure that he has the financial recovery he deserves.

The firm’s client sent this note to the firm after his care concluded:
