Fighting for Florida Car Accident Victims Since 1977

Home Practice Areas

Guardrails are an important highway safety device, designed to keep vehicles that half left the road from encountering dangerous terrain, such as a steep embankment, or from entering oncoming traffic and putting other drivers at risk. When guardrails do their job properly, they save lives and potentially limit the amount of damage sustained during the auto accident. However, many of the guardrails installed in the state of Florida may pose a silent risk to Florida’s drivers.

A guardrail is designed to absorb the force of the impact of a collision and deflect the energy along the guardrail, while keeping the vehicle upright. Due to a design change by one of the country’s largest guardrail manufacturers, Trinity Industries of Texas, many of these safety devices do not perform properly on impact. As a result, accidents involving these guardrails can cause severe injury or even death to the victim.

What To Do After a Guardrail Accident

If you already have auto insurance, your injuries and lost wages are likely covered under Florida law. For victims of guardrail accidents, additional help to recover other costs is available. If you have suffered one of the following types of injuries, you may be entitled to other compensation:

In many cases, accidents may involve more than one vehicle. If another driver was negligent and caused you to encounter a defective guardrail, you may also be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. It is advisable to contact a trusted Florida car accident lawyer, who can review your case and give counsel about your legal options.

Accident Recovery

Many victims just like you have gotten the just compensation they deserve following a horrific accident that was not their vault. While is it easy to assign a dollar amount to a medical bill or lost paycheck, it can be much more difficult to assign a dollar amount to the physical and mental anguish that goes along with a severe injury. During this difficult time, reach out for the assistance you need and deserve.
