Reducing Automaker Liability Risk in Driverless Car Accidents Advised

In the National Journal, Alex Brown reports that “by almost any estimate,” automated cars “will save thousands of lives” but the question of who is to be held responsible if a crash occurs remains. Brown says that litigation risks “could slow the movement of driverless cars to the mass market.” He suggests one option is a “payout fund…to compensate victims of driverless car accidents.” Brown says that subsidies to help the industry launch could include money to seed a payout fund. He concludes that automakers will carry uneven risk of liability lawsuits and says, “some form of straightening that out might make sense.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
