We recently published an article that goes much deeper and answers the important question: Is it still wrongful death if the car is driving itself?
Did you know that self-driving cars cause more accidents (9.1 accidents per million miles driven) than vehicles involving a human driver (4.1 accidents per million miles driven)?
In the article, we talk about:
The concept of self-driving cars
The definition of wrongful death
Who can sue for wrongful death?
Who can be sued when a self-driving car crashes?
Who is liable for the fatality?
We quote 22 different sources in the article — it’s quite authoritative.
Have a look at the details of our much more thorough report: https://www.pittmandutton.com/firm-news/wrongful-death-self-driving-car/
