Trinity Guardrail Accidents
Guardrails are meant to absorb impact and protect drivers during auto accidents, but they often don’t work as designed. As a case in point, in March of 2015, a group of accident victims sued guardrail company Trinity Industries of Texas, after the company changed a key piece of metal by one inch to save money. The victims said this change turned the end pieces into a hazard, as the guardrails didn’t protect, but instead became a sharp spear that pierced their vehicles and bodies – leaving them with lost limbs and permanent injuries.
As a result, federal officials are looking into the safety of guardrails and examining serious and fatal accidents. Even if their research concludes that guardrails are unsafe, it will still take time for changes to take effect. Unfortunately, this means that in the meantime drivers are at risk every day.
