The future of self driving cars (also – Driverless or Autonomous ) is a bright one. In fact, self reported, instances where human operators have had to regain control of a self-driving car due to a self-driving error are in decline. In fact, Waymo (an Alphabet company) has plans of introducing the first driverless ride-hailing (not “Ride-sharing”) program before the end of the year in the metro Phoenix area. This however, has many implications in terms of liability should an accident occur. As a pedestrian if you’re injured by an autonomous car, who could you sue? Perhaps you may not be able to sue R2-D2 just yet.
Determining liability in an accident with an autonomous vehicle is not an easy task. In fact, there are fears that legislation passed could shield autonomous car manufacturers behind arbitration clauses. If you’re involved in a car accident with an autonomous car as a pedestrian or otherwise, it’s best that you speak with a car accident lawyer or personal injury attorney. Here at LA Jewish Lawyer, we’ve put together a list of courtroom-agressive top Personal Injury Attorneys to advise you on your legal recourse.

As you can imagine, there is a wide degree of complexity that is added to a case where an autonomous vehicle causes injury or/and property damage. For example, will the manufacturer be solely at fault if it’s determined it was an error within the machine’s positronic brain? Will the parties share liability between the hardware maker, the software maker and whatever component involved in the accident? How will it be determined who is at fault for how much? As with any area where technology explores where no device has gone before, there are many unknowns. As a result, it’s best to have the best legal representation forward.
