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.

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.
