Trinity Industries ET-Plus Guardrail Lawsuits

Trinity Industries, a Dallas-based company and the largest guardrail manufacturer in the world, has come under scrutiny over its ET-Plus guardrail system, which has been alleged to be associated with a number of injuries and deaths. Victims and families who have suffered injuries or losses in accidents involving ET-Plus guardrails are now filing lawsuits against Trinity Industries.

Why Is Trinity Industries Under Scrutiny?

Guardrails typically work by transferring the force of an impact into an end terminal. The guardrail is then flattened and curls off to the side, away from a car. This absorbs energy from a collision and slows a vehicle down. The alleged problem with ET-Plus guardrails involves a modification Trinity Industries made years ago.

Victims and families affected by the allegedly defective ET-Plus guardrails have begun filing personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits against Trinity Industries. The lawsuits claim that when Trinity Industries changed the size of the end terminal, they made the guardrails less safe and placed innocent motorists and passengers at risk.

Following a federal lawsuit, many states have halted installation of ET-Plus guardrails. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is currently reviewing hundreds of crashes and is continuing to test the safety of Trinity guardrail systems.
