The Ammons Law Firm files lawsuit against Penske Truck Leasing for their role in a motor vehicle accident

Maricopa County, Arizona – The Ammons Law Firm has filed a lawsuit against Penske Truck Leasing, following a severe accident involving a 2020 Isuzu Box Truck based on allegations of negligence and strict product liability. 

The case alleges a 2020 Isuzu Box Truck, leased by Penske to an Arizona business, suffered a catastrophic failure of the left front tire. This malfunction, identified as a tread/belt detachment, led to the driver’s loss of control and a subsequent collision with a passenger vehicle operated by the plaintiff. The accident inflicted severe and permanent injuries on the plaintiff, including extensive medical costs, enduring physical pain, and suffering, as well as impairment and a diminished quality of life. The claim extends to consortium damages, representing the adverse effects on the plaintiff’s spouse, specifically the loss of companionship.

The lawsuit alleges negligence on the part of Penske Truck Leasing in its failure to ensure the vehicle’s safety through proper tire selection and maintenance. The Ammons Law Firm contends that this negligence directly led to the tire’s failure and the subsequent accident. Additional claims are made against other parties involved in the vehicle’s maintenance and operation for their roles in the vehicle’s unsafe condition.

The purpose of personal injury lawsuits is to hold parties accountable for their negligence and to compensate victims for their injuries and losses. These legal actions emphasize the importance of adherence to safety standards and the duty of care owed to the public.
