Does it matter if the vehicle was altered?
If the vehicle owner disabled any essential safety equipment for their self-driving vehicle, then the manufacturer may be cleared from any liability. However, these actions also enhance the liability of the vehicle owner. Self-driving vehicles are more complex than traditional automobiles. For this reason, our team may need to request an independent inspection of the vehicle during the investigation phase. This will provide our team with much-needed information and help us build a stronger case.
