Defective Guard Rails Accident Lawyer in California – Product Liability

Car accidents resulting in potentially life-threatening injuries aren’t always caused by collisions with other cars. Some accidents occur due to defective guard rails that are supposed to keep vehicles from running off the road. Injuries from guard rail defects have a higher chance of being serious, especially if vehicles end up plunging down embankments or if guard rail parts pierce through cars. In fact, one accident victim in San Diego County filed a lawsuit in 2016 after suffering serious injuries that resulted in a leg amputation. These types of injuries can cause accident victims to miss out on work for weeks or months or even lose their jobs while also struggling with medical expenses.

California Laws on Defective Guard Rail Injuries

Some victims who have been injured in accidents involving guard rail defects have filed lawsuits against guard rail manufacturers. Family members of victims who sustained fatal injuries from defective guard rail designs have also filed lawsuits. Guard rail manufacturer Trinity has been involved in lawsuits claiming that the company’s ET Plus guard rails have been responsible for deadly accidents and accidents that have led to severe injuries. These cases involve product liability on the part of the manufacturer for designing guard rail with potentially fatal flaws.

In California, Caltrans currently will not be replacing or removing ET Plus guard rails on freeways throughout the state. However, transportation departments in other states, such as Virginia, have made the decision to replace ET Plus guard rails in order to prevent severe or deadly injuries that can occur if they pierce through vehicles. In Tennessee, the Department of Transportation will be replacing Lindsay X-LITE guard rail ends after four fatalities involving these parts. Those who have filed lawsuits against guard rail manufacturers claim that end pieces on these structures failed to work as they were intended to and instead resulted in serious or deadly injuries after shearing through cars.

Are You Injured

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
