Millions Recovered For Injured People

Americans remain wary of self-driving cars

Many people in Connecticut have shown interest in the potential of self-driving cars and autonomous technologies to reduce the number of car accidents. After all, human error and negligent drivers are the cause of most crashes, which continue to take thousands of lives and injure many more each year on American roads. Still, according to one syrvey by the AAA, only 12% of Americans would feel safe riding in a self-driving car. Around 28% of people said that they are unsure what to think about the technology. They don't feel that they have the information and statistics they would need to opt for autonomous technologies.

In addition, drivers said that they want to know more about how self-driving vehicles will work and how the cars will protect people's safety on the roads. After all, almost everyone has experienced a computer crashing or a malware problem, and many people know the results could be devastating if the same kind of technological flaws led to a motor vehicle accident. Others also raised concerns about legal responsibility. It is relatively easy to determine who is at fault in a motor vehicle accident when humans are responsible for the crash. Distracted, drunk, drowsy or otherwise negligent drivers can be identified from their behavior.

However, this may be less clear when autonomous vehicles make key decisions on their own. In addition, over half of respondents said that they wanted to see a strong level of regulation for self-driving cars; they do not rely on the tech and auto industries to protect safety on their own.

Of course, fully autonomous vehicles are still some way in the future, but people continue to face severe injuries due to auto accidents. A personal injury lawyer may help accident victims to pursue compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
