If you’ve been injured in a car crash that involves a self-driving car, there are a number of factors that need to be looked at. One, you want to look at what the actions and the behavior of the person that was driving the car, what he or she did when the car crash occurred. You’d also want to look at the car itself and see if there’s a potential claim against the manufacturer of the vehicle. These self-driving cars are becoming more popular, and it’s creating some nuances in the law and in the legal analysis.
It’s becoming more and more common for vehicles to have accident avoidance technology; things that alert you if a crash is ready to occur or things that will actually control your vehicle to help you avoid a collision. If that technology failed, that’s a factor that we need to look into to see if the vehicle itself could have or should have avoided the collision and the injury, and that’s something that we need to look at to see if the manufacturer of the vehicle might have some sort of responsibility in the collision.
In the state of Utah, insurance is required on all vehicles. However, many people do drive without insurance. If you’re hit by a driver that doesn’t have insurance and it’s their fault, then the insurance companies look at your insurance and go to your uninsured motorists coverage. That’s where your insurance steps into the shoes of the driver who did not have insurance.
