As driverless cars become more common, it is anticipated that liability for collisions will transfer from human drivers to the manufacturers and operators of autonomous technology.
This implies that to defend clients injured in incidents involving autonomous cars effectively, personal injury lawyers will likely need to become more knowledgeable about product liability laws and processes. This might entail knowing more about the technology and how it is utilized and governed. Lawyers may also need to devise new tactics for researching and contesting these disputes.
The Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) has proposed a framework that would simplify the claims process for injured parties by transferring responsibility to the vehicle’s insurer in the event of a collision, regardless of whether the human operator or automated technology was in control, as well as data sharing with vehicle manufacturers, owners, and/or insurers to assist in determining the cause of a collision.
To offer our clients the best possible representation, we will maintain the newest advances in autonomous vehicle technology and legislation, as well as any changes to product liability laws that may come from the expanding usage of autonomous vehicles.
As personal injury lawyers, we understand how devastating vehicle collisions can be for individuals and their families. If you or a loved one has been injured in a vehicle accident as a result of another person’s negligence or recklessness, it is critical that the responsible party be held accountable for your pain and suffering.
