First pedestrian killed by a self-driving car

self-driving car kills pedestrian

Given there are clearly a number of outstanding safety issues and concerns over autonomous and self-drive cars, we have done a number of blogs about them in recent weeks and months.

Although there have been several accidents involving self-drive cars so far, we now have the first incident of a pedestrian killed by a self-drive car as well.

A self-drive Uber SUV that was in autonomous mode reportedly struck a 49-year-old woman earlier this week, fatally injuring her. The incident has once against called in to question the safety of self-drive vehicles that our own government are pushing to be on our roads in the next few years.

Self-driving vehicles and legal claims for compensation

confusion over compensation for self-driving car accidents

In the next few years, the government wants autonomous vehicles – including self-driving lorries – on Britain’s roads. The problem is what happens when there is an accident, as well as how accidents can be stopped when a vehicle is essentially being controlled by a potentially fallible computer.

There have already been a number of incidents and fatalities with self-drive vehicles involved, so how can we be assured that they’re completely safe on our roads? If something does go wrong, how do we nail who is liable between a “driver” who may still be in the seat, and the manufacturer.

Road Traffic Accidents – our focus on serious injury cases

serious road accident claims

Millions of vehicles are in use on the roads in the U.K., and drivers range from all ages and levels of experience. Unfortunately, accidents happen, and when they do – whether by a full on collision or just a bump – injuries often follow.

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and you have been injured as a result, you may be eligible to claim compensation from the driver at fault. We specialise in serious injury road traffic accident claims and we have a high volume of catastrophic injury claims; higher than many other firms, as far as we believe.

Ford to begin producing their own self-driving cars

laws for self-driving cars

In a statement: “Ford today announces its intent to have a high-volume, fully autonomous SAE level 4-capable vehicle in commercial operation in 2021 in a ride-hailing or ride-sharing service”.

CEO Mark Fields explains level4-capable vehicles to be fully automated: “no steering wheel, no gas pedal, no brake pedal, driver not required.

With road accidents already so common on British roads, do we need to welcome driverless vehicles, or worry about what could go wrong?

Pressure for new laws on self-driving cars to be made as technology advances

laws for self-driving cars

We’ve covered a bit of this recently, and with good reason. Accidents from self-driving cars have already happened, and unless this new technology is done right, our roads could be less safe than ever.

It seems the law is potentially falling behind on regulating fast advancing technology as no one really knows what laws still apply to autonomous driving. In the U.S., Elon Musk and Google’s autonomous cars are surpassing our norms and reportedly leaving law enforcement baffled on what is allowed on the roads and what isn’t.

It’s clear that car and technology companies need legislation to keep-up so that their new high tech cars can be built, sold and used on roads safely.
