As the owner of a self-driving car, you may be wondering who is liable in the event of an accident. The answer to that question can be complicated, as there are a number of parties that could potentially be held responsible. In this blog post, we'll look closely at who might be liable in a self-driving car accident and what you can do to protect yourself.


Regardless of how well they are designed and how often they are tested, self-driving cars will eventually be involved in accidents. When this happens, the question of who is liable for the damages will arise. If the accident was caused by a faulty or defective self-driving car, the manufacturer of the car could be held liable.

In some situations, if the car was not properly maintained, then the company or individual responsible for maintaining the car can be held liable. However, If the self-driving car was involved in an accident due to human error, the driver of the self-driving car could be held liable.

But in some cases, even the government can be held responsible if they poorly designed a road or failed to maintain that road. In any case, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney to determine who may be held liable for a self-driving car accident.
