Why Do You Need a Autonomous Vehicle Accident Lawyer?

You need an Albuquerque autonomous vehicle accident attorney to help you navigate state and federal laws, as well as to stand up for your right to fair financial compensation. Hiring a lawyer can greatly improve your odds of recovering damages for your autonomous vehicle collision.
Examples of Common Autonomous Vehicle Accidents
Autonomous vehicles might not have been on the roads for long, but their brief appearances have already become controversial. Autonomous vehicle accidents have occurred due to operator error, driver inattention, lack of appropriate vehicle reaction, sensor failure, and autopilot problems. A common occurrence has been vehicle autopilot sensors failing to notice and react to vehicles and pedestrians. U.S. courts have found the vehicle drivers, the vehicle manufacturers, and third parties responsible for autonomous vehicle accidents.
Who Is Liable for an Autonomous Vehicle Accident?
The liable party for an autonomous vehicle accident will depend on what caused or contributed to the crash. In cases where the vehicle’s technology failed and caused the collision, the creator of the car or piece of equipment – e.g. Tesla, Google, or Uber – could be legally responsible. In cases involving driver error, the operator of the vehicle and/or another party could be liable.
Who Can I Pursue for Damages?
Determining who you can file a claim against after a harmful autonomous vehicle accident in New Mexico takes investigating the proximate (main) cause of the crash. You may have grounds to pursue damages against the automaker, another driver, a property owner, or a product manufacturer. Many cases involve more than one at-fault party. If your accident was caused by a commercial vehicle, the liability may fall on the employer of said company. Contact our New Mexico truck accident lawyers for more information on these matters.
