Guardrail Accidents

Anyone traveling throughout the United States is familiar with the sight of safety guardrails. Guardrails are in place to provide people with not only peace of mind as they travel down the highway with their families but to provide safety in case of mishap. But what if that peace of mind was a false sense of security?

Experienced Representation For the Victims Of Failing Guardrails

At Isenberg & Hewitt, PC, we believe it is time for the companies responsible for the manufacture, installation and maintenance of these instruments of tragedy to be held accountable. Our experienced Atlanta-based personal injury lawyers represent the victims of failing guardrails nationwide. We are here to represent your interests and maximize the compensation you receive for your injuries or the loss of a loved one.

Why Is This Happening?

Many of the first generation of guardrail terminals — which were tested and approved by the federal government — and even the second generation performed as designed and were valuable tools in efforts to save lives on our highways. Some of the third and fourth generation terminals have and continue to fail resulting in the edges of guardrail channels not being deflected away from an impacting vehicle oftentimes impaling vehicles and the people inside.

The companies that produce, install and maintain these guardrails have, in some cases, chosen expediency and profits over the safety of drivers and passengers. Our goal is to make sure that those responsible are held accountable for the damages they have caused and make sure that the victims of their negligence are compensated fully for their losses.
