Trinity Guardrail Lawsuits

Trinity Guardrails have been linked to injuries and death after a whistle blower alerted authorities of fatal change in design as a cost cutting measure.

At least 16 states have decided to remove guardrails manufactured by Trinity Industries after a whistle blower won a lawsuit claiming the company's guardrails did not function as they were originally designed. The company reportedly changed the Guardrails design without informing The Federal Highway Administration. This was reportedly done as a cost cutting measure to save $2 dollars on every rail head. As of this posting, there have been at least 14 Trinity Guardrail lawsuits filed, which included 5 Guardrail accident deaths. Trinity did stop the sales of these faulty guardrails on Oct 26th. The company previously without any warning narrowed the guardrails channel behind from 5 inches to 4 inches. This change in design caused the guardrails to impale some accident victims upon contact with the guardrails causing serious injury and in some cases death. While the US government did accept Trinity's plan to crash test in Nov 2014, 30 states still announced that they will stop installing these potentially deadly defective guardrails.
