SELF-DRIVING CARS ARE HERE TO STAY

Technology is advancing rapidly across many sectors, but perhaps that is more apparent than anywhere else in the transportation industry. We are moving closer and closer to autonomous and self-driving cars. Though the technology is still in the testing phase, it is still making an impact on the daily lives of Californians. 

An article by Forbes shows us that there have been many accidents across the state when it comes to self-driving vehicles. They say that, out of all the companies currently testing these vehicles across the state, GM's Cruise division and Waymo, a Google initiative, lead the way in accidents. With more companies throwing their hats into the ring or the self-driving world, we see that our citizens are becoming the test subjects.

At Hiden, Rott & Oertle, LLP, we know that this is just one more danger that people face every day when they hit the road. If you need a San Diego car accident attorney, contact us today so we can secure the compensation you deserve.

THE NEW REALITY

As these vehicles become more and more a part of our lives, we will be faced with a new set of ideas about who is responsible for a crash. If it is a driver-assisted autonomous vehicle, who is to blame? The driver or the car?

Can you reach a settlement if the car itself was at fault?

What if you are hit and injured by a completely driverless car? Who do you call about why the incident happened?

California already has more deadly traffic accidents than any other state and this new technology is sure to add to those numbers. It will also add to the injury count. In the latest reporting year, there were:

  • Over 12,000 serious injuries
  • Over 3,500 fatalities

THE CAUSES

When it comes to regular vehicle accidents, many of the major causes are the same that they have always been. Speeding and aggressive driving continue to be the biggest causes of accidents across the state. How many reckless drivers do you see in and around the city?

Alcohol-impaired drivers caused 27% of all traffic-related fatalities during the latest reporting year and distracted drivers are becoming more and more of a problem as technology continues to transform our lives.

Why should you and your family be put into financial jeopardy because of someone else's mistake?

WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS?

If you have been involved in a car crash that was caused by the negligence of another person or company, we advise you to seek legal assistance. Liability issues in a car crash can become complicated, especially if insurance companies do not offer you much in a settlement. At Hiden, Rott & Oertle, LLP, we will work diligently on your behalf to secure the compensation you need for all of your accident-related expenses.
