Are Self-Driving Cars Safe?
Self-driving cars are no longer the stuff of science fiction. Heavy burdens of responsibility come with this truth, however. Automakers must ensure the safety of these vehicles as much as reasonably possible. This means many different things, from making sure the technology is stable to running plenty of preliminary safety tests. When automakers shirk these duties, serious accidents can happen.
Examples of issues that can cause self-driving car accidents include:
- Dangerously designed vehicles or parts
- Auto part defects
- Vehicles missing important parts or features
- Autonomous equipment malfunctions
- A glitch in the vehicle’s self-driving features
- Bad weather interfering with the technology
- GPS system failures
- Failure to properly instruct drivers on how to use autonomous vehicles
- Negligent or incompetent drivers
Years from now, autonomous vehicles may prevent hundreds of thousands of traffic accident collisions and deaths. Today, however, these inventions are still in the budding stages of creation. That, unfortunately, means years of trial and error — likely at a high human cost.
If you or a loved one was hurt or killed by an autonomous vehicle, contact our Hollywood self-driving car accident attorneys to discuss your rights. You may have a claim against the vehicle’s creators and/or other parties.
Common Injuries in an Autonomous Vehicle Accident
When a self-driving car collides with another vehicle, a median, a bicyclist, or a pedestrian, injuries can be catastrophic. The most common injuries include broken bones, lacerations, contusions, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. Damage to the spine or brain can cause lasting repercussions on cognitive and physical abilities.
Always contact a lawyer if you have suffered serious injuries in any type of collision. A personal injury claim could give you compensation for your past and future medical costs, lost income, physical pain, and emotional suffering.

If you lost a loved one in a self-driving car accident, your family could recover additional compensation for wrongful death.
