A word about car accidents and driverless vehicles

The concept of an autonomous motor vehicle is one of the most talked-about topics in recent years. It appears that the nation remains divided on whether these vehicles make traveling by road safer or more dangerous. After recent fatalities involving driverless cars, controversy over the concept has risen even more in Illinois where many car accidents occur each year.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), driver error is to blame for more than 90 percent of the nation's car accidents. Advocates of autonomous vehicles believe that driverless cars could reduce these statistics. Opponents believe the concept of driverless cars needs more testing before it becomes a true reality.

As injury attorneys, we look at issues like these from a victim's perspective. We support any concept that will preserve human life and prevent injuries. At the same time, we wonder if anyone can really know if autonomous vehicles will reduce car accidents at this point in the concept's evolution.

We, as lawyers, must also look at accident situations with an eye towards making a victim as whole as possible after the crash. This means fighting to get victims the maximum amount of compensation, which is necessary for their physical and emotional health. In the case of autonomous cars, who will pay for any negligence that led to a victim's injuries?

Issues like liability must become a larger part of the discussions revolving around driverless car technology. The nation needs a complete viewpoint from all perspectives before autonomous vehicles become an everyday part of our lives. We encourage your comments on these and other public safety issues in our state. We also invite you to learn more about the victim's perspective in a car accident by visiting our website.
