Understanding Your Legal Rights

Pursuing compensation in defective or missing guardrail cases is typically quite complex. The first step involves determining who is liable for the accident and what type of claim you may be able to bring.

Some examples include:

  • A product liability claim, if the guardrail in question is found to be defective, meaning it did not work as intended
  • A premises liability claim, if the guardrail was installed incorrectly or was not installed where it should have been
  • A general negligence claim, if an entity responsible for road maintenance failed to perform proper guardrail maintenance and/or report a problem

In any of the above situations, one or several of the following parties may be at fault:

  • The company that designed or manufactured a defective guardrail
  • The construction company that improperly installed or failed to install the guardrail
  • The local, city, or state government responsible for conducting road maintenance
  • A private entity involved in the design, manufacturing, installation, or maintenance of the guardrail
