Families of motorists killed by a dangerous guardrail device used on roadways across the country today called on the Federal Highway Association (FHWA) to aggressively and immediately address a safety issue that puts millions of drivers at risk every day. Manufactured by the Nebraska-based Lindsay Corporation (NYSE: LNN), the X-LITE guardrail model has claimed more than half a dozen lives nationwide, impaling vehicle passengers rather than telescoping into itself as the company claims the product is designed to do. Hoping to bring awareness to the issue and hold the company accountable, three families announced consumer safety protection litigation against the Lindsay Corporation and a fourth family announced its intention to file a similar suit in the coming weeks. The families are represented by Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll.
