What Are Self-Driving Cars?
Self-driving or autonomous vehicles use advanced sensors, machine learning, and algorithms to operate without human intervention. While they promise safer roads, this technology is not perfect and these vehicles are not without risks, especially when defects occur. If you’ve been injured due to a defective autonomous vehicle, Clark Fountain is your go-to legal expert for seeking justice.
Why Choose Clark Fountain for Autonomous Vehicle Injuries?
Navigating the legal complexities of defective self-driving cars requires specialized expertise. Clark Fountain specializes in autonomous vehicle accident cases, offering unparalleled legal representation to secure your rights and the compensation you deserve.
Types of Autonomous Vehicles and Their Risks
Level 1: Automated Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
Automated Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) offer basic features like lane-keeping and adaptive cruise control. However, defects such as sensor failures or software glitches can lead to accidents. If you’ve been injured due to an ADAS malfunction, Clark Fountain can assist you in gathering evidence and building a strong case.
Level 2: Partial Automation
Partial automation systems like Tesla’s Autopilot control steering and speed but require human oversight. Defective sensors or algorithms can lead to catastrophic outcomes. Clark Fountain helps you understand your rights and the manufacturer’s liabilities, guiding you through the legal process.
Level 3: Conditional Automation
Conditional automation vehicles can handle most driving tasks but may require human intervention in complex situations. The main risk here is the “handoff” problem, where the vehicle may not give the driver adequate time to take over. Clark Fountain leverages its deep understanding of technology and law to represent you effectively.
Level 4 and Level 5: High to Full Automation
These vehicles can operate without human intervention but are susceptible to software, hardware, and cybersecurity defects. If you’ve been a victim, Clark Fountain can help you navigate the complex legal landscape of high to full automation vehicle defects.
