Who Is Liable For These Non-Human Self-Driving Car Crashes?
After recent tragedies involving a pedestrian being struck by a self-driving Tesla, we must now ask ourselves a very simple question.
“How can the injured person/victim claim compensation after being struck by a vehicle that has no driver?”
Here are a few interesting key points that you must consider:
- Tesla has a very clear agreement with each independent owner of their vehicles in regards to its self-driving responsibilities. All owners must acknowledge and assume all responsibilities for any accidents while in “self-drive” mode.
- Was the driverless vehicle in the correct lane upon initial impact? Recent studies have shown that as more self-driving cars are involved in crashes, the cause of these accidents is usually due to vehicles with drivers.
- If the injured party can prove that the cause of the accident was due to an electrical malfunction, you may have solid evidence for a successful verdict in court.
