When Self-Driving Cars Crash – Who Pays?

“Arguably, tort law is already able to deal with the losses resulting from self-driving technology.

Those principles impose liability for negligence (failure to exercise care) or strict liability for harm caused by certain product defects. Exposure to tort liability creates incentives for product sellers and users to adopt measures that can minimize future harm by reducing activity levels or increasing precautions.

I am a Dallas, Texas lawyer who has had the privilege of helping thousands of clients since 1971 in the areas of Personal Injury law and Social Security Disability.

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...)
