Who is at fault for self-driving car accidents?
Driverless car technology is already being tested on American highways, and several companies have announced their intentions to release fully autonomous cars as soon as 2016. And while self-driving cars promise to make our roads safer, they also create complex legal issues when people get hurt.
Debates continue over who can be held liable for self-driving car accidents, and a variety of parties may be held responsible for damages—including automakers and vehicle component manufacturers. As a result, driverless car accident claims could take on elements of defective product law, resulting in a completely new type of auto accident case law.
Driverless Cars Are Almost Here
Many analysts predict a majority of cars will be driving themselves within just a few years. Tech giants like Google and Uber are investing billions of dollars in driverless vehicles, and state and federal governments are struggling to regulate their use.
