As an associate at a personal injury firm who is responsible for managing all auto claims, I’m very curious on the impact self-driving vehicles will have on the insurance and legal industries. There will likely be many insurance and legal disputes over who the at-fault party is in the event of an accident. If a self-driving vehicle is at fault, there may be multiple claims brought against the same technology company as opposed to the actual driver of the at-fault vehicle. While this is a very concerning issue, I believe we still have around 20-30 years before self-driving cars and lorries will be fully implemented into our society.
