Whether you are driving on an elevated and winding road through the mountains or just on the highway, guardrails are one of the most important components of a safe roadway. Municipalities are supposed to follow specific safety requirements when building a road or highway, including installing properly functioning guardrails. Unfortunately, not every municipality follows these safety requirements. Guardrails are intended to provide a barrier or blockade for motorists who lose control of their vehicles, preventing them from skidding off the road and into a hazard.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a motor vehicle accident due to a missing guardrail, you may be eligible for financial compensation to help pay for expenses related to the accident. Without a guardrail, an accident can go from minor to life-altering in an instant.
