If you have been injured in an accident that involved a fully autonomous car such as a Tesla or other driverless vehicles, we are here to help. While driverless cars have only been on the road for a short time, The Ruth Law Team has been fighting on behalf of car accident victims like yourself for more than 40 years. 

While these types of vehicles are generally considered to be safe, they are not foolproof. When a self-driving car malfunctions, the results can be catastrophic. Our experienced team of self-driving car accident lawyers are here to give you the attention you need and deserve. 

We have the experience necessary to help you make informed decisions following a self-driving car accident as well as the empathy to understand the significant mental, physical, and financial hardships the accident might have caused you. 

Don’t navigate this difficult time alone. Speak with a self-driving car accident lawyer to find out what your rights are and whether you have a case today by calling (888) 783-8378. You can also schedule a free case evaluation and receive expert legal guidance and a no-cost and no-obligation case review.

Common Causes of Self-Driving Car Accidents

Every day, more autonomous cars hit the road. When they work as they are designed to, self-driving cars can be incredibly safe and convenient. However, an equipment failure, manufacturing defect, or human error can result in serious and potentially deadly accidents.

It is important to understand the causes of self-driving car accidents. Doing so may help you or your loved one avoid being injured.

As self-driving vehicles become increasingly common on public roadways, crashes involving these cars are also becoming more common. Accidents involving these complex machines can occur at virtually any time. Some common causes of self-driving vehicle crashes include:
