Safety advocates have petitioned the federal government to investigate the "unprecedented pileup of deadly crashes" concerning Tesla's Autopilot-enabled vehicles and all other self-driving vehicles. In one tragic, fatal incident, a Tesla Model S car "flew" off the road, struck a tree, exploded, and then caught on fire for several hours. According to emergency fire-rescue crews, two people were tragically found deceased inside the Tesla Model S. It is believed that the Tesla's owner was "showing off" the car's Autopilot when the crash transpired.
There have been eleven deaths in nice separate Autopilot accidents in the United States. Although there are many different auto manufacturers making producing similar self-driving vehicles, no known fatalities connected to other manufacturers' self-driving vehicles have been reported. The National Transportation Safety Board (NHTSB) has charged Tesla's Autopilot with causing several fatal accidents, and the NTSB has opened a dozen investigations. So far, these investigations have led to a recurring theme: "Drivers over-relied on a self-driving system that in some cases was flawed and in others was simply not as capable as the driver thought."

Common Autonomous Vehicle Injuries
The most common types of accident injuries sustained during an autonomous driving vehicle accident in Atlanta are severe and life-threatening. Our law firm has represented crash victims who have sustained injuries such as:
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
- Burn injuries
- Cardiac arrest/heart attacks
- Cuts & lacerations
- Head injury
- Hearing loss
- Neck injury
- Organ injury
- Spinal injury
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Wrongful death
If you or a loved one have been in an autonomous driving vehicle accident, it is crucial that you or your family member seek emergency medical treatment and be cognizant of how you feel following any crash. This is because many accident injuries are internal, and not seeking emergency medical attention could lead to death.
Car Accident Insurance Companies Tactics to Pay Less on Your Accident Claim
After an accident, the accident victim will begin the process of filing a claim with the negligent driver's insurance company. Although Georgia Law requires the at-fault driver's insurance company to compensate the victim adequately, many insurers seldom make the process easy. In fact, car accident insurance companies are committed to generating substantial profits for their stock shareholders. Therefore, insurance company adjusters try to pay the least amount of money possible on accident claims. The insurance company's economic and your interests are at odds. Therefore, the insurance company will attempt to reduce the amount of monetary compensation that they pay accident claimants by:
- Shifting blame on the victim.
- Questioning the seriousness of the victim's injuries.
- Offering an inadequate low-ball settlement.
- Stating the victim's accident injuries are from a previous accident.
- Recording victims' statements to use those statements against them.
Recovering Damages in an Autonomous Vehicle Accident
In Georgia, when a person has been injured in an accident caused by another, that accident victim has a limited amount of time to seek monetary compensation for their damages, including:
- Accident-related medical costs
- Pain and suffering
- Rental car reimbursement
- Property damage
- Loss of earnings
- Motor vehicle repair or replacement
- Other accident-related expenses

Georgia Statute of Limitations / Mandatory Deadlines to Meet
Each state has laws that set deadlines for accident injury victims to file their claims. These time deadlines are known as the statute of limitations. Most states' statutes of limitations are different and there can be other laws/statutes in addition that limit recovery time. Therefore, it is important not to delay in receiving your free consultation with our law firm.
