NHTSA’s Recognition of Self-Driving Software as Drivers Raises Questions About Liability

In a detailed report, the Washington Post analyzes the impact the NHTSA’s decision to recognize of Google’s self-driving software as a “driver” will have on liability. The article suggests that with the car’s software as the legal “driver,” automakers “may assume greater responsibility for crashes.” The article goes on to share policymakers, insurance companies, and experts’ perspectives on the issue. The article concludes that currently, many companies and states are still in a stage where they are trying to understand the implications of NHTSA’s decision.

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

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...)
