Uber’s Self-Driving Vehicle Kills Pedestrian
Self-driving cars will likely take up the roadways sooner than we can imagine. However, companies that are hosting these vehicles are still working out the kinks in order to make them safe for the public. In recent test drives, there was an unfortunate accident in one of the major cities that hosted one of these test drives. According to The Washington Post reporters Faiz Siddiqui and Mechael Laris, “Uber abruptly halted testing of its autonomous vehicles across North America on Monday, after a 49-year old woman was struck and killed by one of its cars while crossing a Tempe, Ariz. street Sunday night” (washingtonpost.com, March 19, 2018).
These types of accidents may become more common as the day of self-driving cars comes to be more prevalent in society. Therefore, it behooves you to know a good personal injury attorney who can help you receive the compensation you need to pay for the right medical treatment. If the accident resulted in a death, like in the Tempe, AZ case, you will need an experienced attorney who understands how to fight insurance companies in a wrongful death case.
