The Dangers of Self-Driving Vehicles 

Autonomous or self-driving vehicles are cars that can operate without the intervention of a driver. These vehicles can be extremely dangerous; in fact, nearly 400 crashes between July 2021 and May 2022 were caused by autonomous vehicle technology. 

While no car is fully autonomous, some vehicles are equipped with systems where the car can drive itself. However, these systems require that the driver remain alert and be prepared to take control at any moment. 

Additionally, some companies have permits to test autonomous technologies on Las Vegas roads. The technology behind these vehicles is not fully complete and serious mishaps can occur during these tests.

Who Is Liable for an Autonomous Vehicle Accident in Las Vegas?

Nevada is a fault car accident state that requires at-fault drivers to pay for any collisions that they cause. When it comes to autonomous vehicle accidents, however, you may wonder who can be held accountable.

Today’s self-driving car technology is not fully autonomous. If a hazard arises, the driver must intervene and take control of the vehicle. As a result, a motorist who is operating an autonomous vehicle would be liable for any accidents that occur. 

If you are injured in a self-driving car accident, you could file an insurance claim or lawsuit against the driver of the vehicle. You will need to prove that his or her actions caused your crash in order to recover compensation.

What Compensation Is Available in a Self-Driving Car Accident Claim?

By filing a self-driving car accident claim, you can recover compensation for the financial, emotional, and physical losses that you suffered in the collision. Below are some of the most common damages in these claims:

  • Past and future medical care
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earnings and benefits
  • Chronic pain
  • Permanent disability
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of quality of life
