Could Liability Issues Foul up the Rollout of Driverless Cars?

November 7, 2016 – Media Mention

Alan Kaplan was quoted in a Politico article regarding liability issues that auto manufacturers could encounter from the advent of driverless vehicles, which may shift liability for crashes away from drivers and onto manufacturers. Kaplan told the publication that automakers already get involved in costly litigation with crash victims. "I think the way they're looking at it, [with driverless cars], you're going to eliminate a very large type of lawsuit that they invariably get sucked into even though they may not be the true culprit."
