What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Lack of Guardrails

We have all seen guardrails along the shoulders and medians of major roads and highways. Most of us rarely reflect on the reasons they exist, or the consequences their absence may cause. Unfortunately, a lack of adequately built guardrails can cause or contribute to major motor vehicle accidents. The consequences of these accidents can be costly, painful, and potentially even deadly.

If you or a member of your family has been injured in an accident caused by a lack of guardrails, you may have grounds for legal action. Jacksonville lack of road guardrails lawyer Don Guthrie is ready to fight on your behalf. Call our offices today at 904-296-1088.

The Importance of Guardrails

Guardrails are very simple structures, yet they serve many important functions. Guardrails keep pedestrians and motorists safe by:

  • Clearly marking busy roads, lanes, etc
  • Reducing the chances of vehicle rollovers in major accidents
  • Preventing vehicles from moving into the wrong lane or leaving the road
  • Reducing the chances of collisions between vehicles and pedestrians

If a guardrail is poorly built or missing entirely, the chances that innocent parties will suffer major injuries are greatly increased. Organizations that design, build, or maintain roads have an important obligation to install and maintain guardrails where they are needed. When they do not, these entities can be liable for resulting accidents.
