Advanced Driver-Assistance Technology Causes Hundreds of Crashes in Only 10 Months

According to a recent federal study, nearly 400 auto accidents were caused by vehicles using advanced driver-assistance technology, such as the Autopilot feature on many Teslas, in the last 10 months alone. Of those accidents, six people lost their lives and five were critically injured. Unfortunately, these accidents, for the most part, were preventable. If you or a loved one has sustained an injury due to this driver-assistance technology, you may have a valid claim against the companies that produce these vehicles. Read on and reach out to an experienced Bronx car accident attorney to learn more about these car accidents and how we can help if you’ve been hurt in one.

What should I do if I was hurt in an accident caused by advanced driver-assistance technology?

If you were hurt in a car accident caused by this technology, the first thing you should do is call the police to the scene of the accident. This will help ensure you receive the emergency medical services you need. That said, you should also make it a point to ask witnesses for their contact information, get the other driver’s insurance information (if another vehicle was involved in the accident), and overall do everything in your power to document exactly how the accident occurred.

If you were hurt due to a malfunctioning Autopilot feature, there’s a strong chance you’ll have a valid product liability claim. However, to prove as much, we must demonstrate that you were hurt as a direct result of the car being negligently manufactured or designed. As technology evolves, unfortunately, it seems as though some accidents are to be expected, but this doesn’t mean they shouldn’t go accounted for. Our firm has fought on behalf of those injured in auto accidents in NYC for decades, and we’re prepared to fight for you as well. Give us a call today to learn more about what we can do for you.
