Texas Police Officer Says Ford’s Negligence Resulted in Nerve Damage
Another day, another police officer accusing Ford of negligently poisoning them while on the job.
Austin police officer Ryan Hancock says his symptoms (nausea, headaches and vision problems ) continued the next day and caused him to seek medical help. According to the lawsuit, tests conducted at the hospital showed his symptoms were from carbon monoxide poisoning. Furthermore, the plaintiff says his nervous system has been damaged by the fumes.
Hancock is represented by Brian Chase, the same attorney repressing officer Zachary LaHood in another carbon monoxide lawsuit against the automaker.
A common theme in these lawsuits is pointing to a series of Technical Service Bulletins (TSB) which show Ford has known about the dangerous problem for years.More information on carcomplaints.com
