Whistleblower Claims Guardrails Are Potentially Deadly Hazards

In a 1,300+ word article, Bloomberg News reports that Joshua Harman, claiming Federal whistle-blower status, is suing Trinity Highway Products and its owner, Trinity Industries, “alleging the company made quiet design changes that transformed guardrails intended to reduce injuries into potentially deadly hazards.” Harman claims that Trinity made changes to its ET-Plus end terminal without notifying Federal authorities. However, the article notes that in a “2012 deposition for a patent infringement lawsuit over the ET-Plus,” a Trinity executive said the changes made to the end terminal were “‘cosmetic’ and didn’t require new approvals because they didn’t hurt its performance.” According to the report, company spokesman Jack Todd said Trinity did not “sell the revised end terminals until they had been crash-tested in 2005,” and the FHWA had “issued its letter of acceptance.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
