Parents File Claim Against State for Failure to Install Guardrail

Comments Off

Four young men were killed in March 2004 in Clallam County when their vehicle left SR 112 and plunged into a river. Their parents have filed claims against the State based on alleged negligent highway design.

The claims contend that the deaths could have been avoided if the State had placed a guardrail along a curved stretch of the road.

Highway design flaws, such as the failure to install a guardrail or the improper installation of a guardrail, can be overlooked in a personal injury case and should always be considered in any serious injury accident involving motor vehicles.
