Personal Injury Involving a Self- Driving Car

by William Mattar | August 4th, 2015

How do you collect insurance information when you get into an accident with a self-driving car? Not something you have had to worry about in the past, but for one driver and two passengers, this was a reality. A Google prototype car was involved in a collision when it was rear ended by another vehicle, which caused minor injuries to those passengers.

This brings up many questions that were not thought about in the past involving things like insurance, liability and other regulations. Who is at fault here- or should we say “what”? We all know that you cannot live with or without technology, so what happens if there is an accident caused by a “glitch”? This could become a very complicated case for those involved. How would you feel to know that these situations might be handled as no-fault? Where no matter what happens, your insurance policy will be paying?
