According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 94% of car accidents are due to human error. Innovators have imagined a world where our faults would no longer endanger each other on the road.

Today, self-driving cars seem to be a permanent reality, especially in Arizona where Uber had been testing its autonomous vehicles. While many passengers arrived unharmed, one self-driving car hit and killed a pedestrian on March 18, 2018.

As self-driving vehicles enter our roads, the chances of self-driving car accidents will inevitably increase. However, some autonomous vehicles makers, like Zoox, are focusing on safety to prevent crashes.

Potential Claims for Self-Driving Car Accident Victims

Although the law surrounding self-driving vehicles is widely unsettled, Nevada and California have determined that the operator of the car (the person who “causes the technology to engage”) is responsible if there is an accident.
