Over the last decade, guardrail collisions have become a growing source of injuries and death on U.S. roadways.
Guardrails are metal barriers designed to prevent drivers from going off the road. Typically, guardrails are used on the shoulder of the road near steep drop offs, rough terrain, or heavy traffic moving at high speeds.
Although guardrails are designed to protect motorists from going off the road, some poorly designed guardrails have been the cause of serious injury or death. Properly designed guardrails deflect vehicles, absorb the speed from a collision, and act as a barrier. However, poorly designed or defective guardrails can function like a spear, slicing into the vehicle and causing serious damage to those inside. One type of guardrail known as ET-Plus, made by Trinity Industries, has been implicated in many lawsuits throughout the U.S. over the last decade. The ET-Plus guardrails should sweep vehicles to the side upon impact, but according to reports, these guardrails allegedly cause the rails to pull up, piercing through the front of the vehicle.
