Texas-based Trinity Industries has been under scrutiny in the wake of reports that its ET-Plus guardrail system has been related to serious injuries and fatalities in highway accidents throughout the county. It is facing lawsuits from victims who were seriously injured when the guardrail punctured their vehicles instead of deflecting away in the accident. In addition, the company was recently slapped with a substantial jury verdict in a case involving allegations that it defrauded the United States government by not disclosing its design changes to the guardrail system in 2005.
Although many motor vehicle accidents occur each year that involve a guardrail system, not all of the victims may be entitled to compensation for their injuries by Trinity Industries. So, how can you determine if you qualify for a guardrail lawsuit? The short answer is to talk to an accident attorney who specifically handles these types of cases.
