Leaders In The Field Of Self-Driving Car Accident Claims

Self-driving cars might be the new frontier, but they still pose immense risks to drivers and pedestrians today. Roadways will almost certainly see more self-driving cars – also called autonomous vehicles – in the near future, which opens up new opportunities for serious accidents and injuries.

Toresco & Simonelli Attorneys At Law is at the forefront of personal injury law by handling accident claims involving self-driving vehicles. Few law firms handle this emerging practice area – but we do. Our Long Island attorneys are innovative and knowledgeable leaders in the field who can represent you if you have damages as the result of autonomous driving technology.

What Causes Autonomous Vehicle Accidents?

Self-driving cars do not always comprehend or respond to sensory data the same way that humans do. As a result, even the most sophisticated self-driving car in existence can contribute to a crash. Accidents involving autonomous driving technology can have several sources of liability:

  • Drivers: Even when using self-driving technology, drivers have an obligation to operate their vehicles safely.
  • Auto manufacturers: Auto manufacturers do not provide any training on how to use the self-driving technology in their vehicles.
  • Technology developers: Defective or dangerous technology that could result in harm to consumers.

Questions of liability in these cases can become exceedingly complex. Fortunately, our lawyers understand how to investigate the crash thoroughly, examining the records of in-car devices to determine exactly which party holds fault.
