There have been 14 reported defective guardrail lawsuits filed in the U.S. This includes 4 wrongful death lawsuits. Plaintiffs are arguing that Trinity Industries changed the design of the guard rail as a cost cutting measure that saved $2 per unit. Also the change in design made the guardrails unable to be reused, thus the government had to reorder new guardrails after accidents, increase profits for Trinity. Despite the multiple Trinity guardrail lawsuits that have been filed there is currently no defective guardrail class action lawsuits. In November Trinity promised to conduct more saftey tests and thus avoided an outright ban of the ET-Plus guardrail
Class Action lawsuits are often created to make litigation more efficent. Guardrail lawsuits could be consolidated into one central location for discovery. However due to the different range of injuries and fatalities a defective guardrail class action could be unlikely. It is also unknown if Trinity would consider creating a Trinity Guardrail compensation fund. General Motors created a compensation fund for it's defective ignition switches in 2014. Plaintiffs may opt to focus on individual guardrail lawsuits instead of a defective guardrail class action lawsuit.
