Vehicle Software Failure
Cars do more for you than ever before. Some cars beep when another car is encroaching on your lane. They let you know if you’re about to back up on something. There are even cars that slow down before you back into something. These are all excellent features, but sometimes they fail and you end up in an accident. When that happens, who should be responsible? Should you have to bear the responsibility and all of the expenses that come with the failure? At Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath, we believe that manufacturers and suppliers should be responsible for software vulnerabilities and failures. If the system fails, the manufacturer should have to not only fix the software, but account for all of the damages that occur due to the failure, as well. Whether that damage is a scraped bumper or a totaled vehicle, the attorneys at Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath are here to help.
Holding Manufacturers Responsible
Manufacturers want to have the best of both worlds. On one hand, they want to advertise their cars as having self-driving features. They use these advertisements to sell the cars of the future. People buy these cars for the autonomous features and can’t wait to use them.
Then, on the other hand, manufacturers want to disappear as soon as something goes wrong. At Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath, we don’t believe they can have it both ways. If they are going to advertise self-driving features, they have to be responsible when those features don’t work. When you hire us, we will fight for you to recover your expenses and get any additional damages that are due to you when these features break down.
