Trinity Guardrail Lawsuit Attorney in St. Louis


In 2005, Trinity Industries made changes to the dimensions of its ET-Plus guardrail systems without alerting the government. The result of that change has been injuries and even death due to the ET-Plus being prone to a potentially deadly malfunction. Critics of the ET-Plus system claim that its faulty design permits sections of the guardrail to break off and pierce through vehicles during collisions.

This faulty product may have caused many serious injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Cuts
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Death

St. Louis Product Liability Attorneys for Guardrail Accident Claims

Multiple personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits have been filed against Trinity. Studies have indicated that the ET-Plus guardrail system can be almost four times more likely to cause a fatal crash than Trinity’s previous model.

This Nationwide Investigation Has Missouri Roots

Most states have suspended ET-Plus installations over safety issues and many states are in the process of conducting an inventory of their existing ET-Plus systems. This discussion of Trinity’s guardrail safety has been fueled by a fatal Clay County, Missouri accident that occurred in January 2014, as well as a federal jury verdict in Texas. Missouri’s Department of Transportation (MoDOT) was one of the first states to recognize there was a safety issue and MoDOT has suspended the installation of the ET-Plus guardrail system based on those concerns.
