Ford Compensates Driver Paralyzed by Expedition’s Collapsing Roof

The Ammons Law Firm has successfully negotiated the settlement of a products liability case against Ford Motor Company filed on behalf of a Texas woman who was catastrophically injured in a rollover accident.

The woman was headed home from work in her Ford Expedition when she was struck by another vehicle whose driver ran a red light. The collision caused the Ford Expedition to spin, and it then rolled over onto its passenger side. Its top slid into a crosswalk sign pole after which the vehicle popped back up onto its wheels.

The lawsuit filed by Rob Ammons claimed that the Ford Expedition’s roof was exceptionally weak and completely collapsed on the woman as it struck the sign pole. The woman, who was still belted inside the vehicle as it came to rest, sustained a spinal cord injury as a result of her interaction with the collapsing roof. The injury was to her cervical spine and left her tetraplegic.

At Ford’s insistence, the amount of the settlement is being kept confidential.
