Ammons Law Firm Successfully Resolves Tire Failure Case on Behalf of Family Against Tire Manufacturer and Auto Dealership

Houston, Texas – The Ammons Law Firm, a renowned personal injury firm, is pleased to announce the successful resolution of a tire failure case on behalf of a grieving family against multiple defendants. The case, which involved a tragic accident resulting in the loss of three lives, was diligently pursued by the firm to ensure justice and compensation for the affected family.

The lawsuit was filed in the El Paso County District Court in El Paso, Texas, on behalf of a family whose loved ones were involved in a tire failure accident. The family, traveling in a 2015 Ford Transit van, experienced a devastating rollover incident after the right rear tire suffered a tread separation. Three individuals died in the crash, leaving the family seeking answers.

The Ammons Law Firm held multiple defendants accountable for their alleged roles in the incident. Ultimately, settling the case.  

The case was based on two theories of liability. The first theory, strict product liability, asserted that there were safer alternative designs available for the tire, which could have prevented the defects and significantly reduced the risk of failure and injury. The Ammons Law Firm argued that the defendants were strictly liable for the tire’s defects under applicable product liability law. Plaintiffs further alleged negligence in the design, manufacturing, assembly, marketing, and placement of the tire into the stream of commerce.

The second theory of liability targeted the auto dealer. As an automotive shop with specialized knowledge, The Ammons Law Firm argued that the dealer was responsible for ensuring the Ford Transit Van’s tires were safe during their useful life. The Ammons Law Firm contended that the dealer neglected this duty by failing to remove the defective tire, despite its known dangerous nature, during a safety inspection conducted on the van.

Through diligent negotiations and strong legal representation, the Ammons Law Firm secured a favorable resolution for the family. The defendants recognized the strength of the case and agreed to a settlement that provided the family with fair compensation for their immeasurable losses, including financial and emotional damages.

“We are pleased to announce the successful resolution of this tire failure case on behalf of our clients,” said Rob Ammons, founding attorney of the Ammons Law Firm. “Our firm remains committed to fighting for justice and holding responsible parties accountable for their actions. We extend our deepest sympathies to the family who has endured unimaginable pain and loss throughout this ordeal.”
