New York Self-Driving Car Accident Attorneys

car accident lawyerSelf-driving automobiles present a whole new world of technology. As companies continue to develop and implement automated car technology, cars have been introduced into the market with widely varying ranges of automation. Leading car companies like Volvo, Tesla and Mercedes-Benz, have been developing and testing self-driving cars as the next step in the transportation of the future. Although these self-driving cars promise to reduce human driving error, they are not immune to motor vehicle accidents. Determining who is at fault in these accidents can be a difficult task and requires the skills of an experienced New York self-driving car crash attorney.

At Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C., we have been fighting for the rights of New Yorkers seriously injured as a result of accidents for more than 30 years. Our team of attorneys and support staff are dedicated to serving the needs of our clients and getting the maximum compensation that they deserve for their injuries.

What Is a Self-Driving Car?

Companies such as Tesla and Google have recently introduced self-driving cars into the market that have the capability of maneuvering you through busy city streets with the ease of being in a chauffeured driven vehicle. However, your “chauffeur” is actually a computer system that is built into the vehicle with a guidance system that monitors traffic patterns, the road and other cars around you.

Similar to the first generation of some piece of cell phone or technological equipment, it is not uncommon to have bugs in the system. Bugs in cell phones or computers may only frustrate and inconvenience you because of a lost call or a system crash. However, many experts worry that bugs in the system of self-driving cars can end up getting people killed.

Who Should Be Liable In Car Accidents Involving Self-Driving Cars?

Driverless cars are designed and programmed to avoid collisions. However, accidents will still inevitably happen as long as other cars are on the road. A Google self-driving vehicle was involved in an accident with a bus earlier this year. The accident forced Google to admit fault after the car crossed to the other side of the road to avoid a hazard and failed to anticipate the possibility that a larger vehicle would not yield. Similarly, a self-driving Tesla car was also involved in an accident in May, killing the driver when the car collided with a tractor-trailer.

What these two accidents demonstrate is that the computer system is capable of mistakes and cannot guarantee a mistake-free driving experience. As such, self-driving car manufacturers, such as Tesla and Google, can face some liability for car accidents.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!!
