Advancements in auto-technology

We have been hearing more and more about autonomous vehicles (AVs), or as they are more commonly know, self-driving cars, in the news every day. Virtually every car-maker is in the process of developing their own version of what many are calling robot cars.

Just like with the invention of the Model-T, AVs are likely to change the way we go about our day to day business and activities.

Potential to save lives?

According to a report released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 35,092 people died on U.S. roadways in 2015 alone and 94% of crashes can be tied to a human choice or error.

Car manufacturers believe that automated driving innovations could dramatically decrease the number of crashes tied to human choices and behavior, thus decrease the amount of fatalities on U.S. roadways.

Who can be held liable?

Although self-driving cars have the potential to minimize human driving error, that doesn’t mean that accidents aren’t bound to happen. As long as there are still human drivers on U.S. roads, car collisions are inevitable.

However, if you are injured in a serious due to someone else’s negligence, you should not be held responsible for the resulting damages.
