The IHS Automotive survey said that by 2020, the world will be seeing the first generation of self-driving cars. According to the IHS, these new self-driven cars will ensure at least 75% collision free roads and better optimization of fuel and vehicle resources. This might mean a challenge for no win no fee accident claims management companies and other legal solicitors.
Less troubles mean less headaches for many people, but some people’s headaches are other people’s businesses. The self-driving car makes use of currently existing sensor technologies such as side sensors and artificial intelligences that make use of GPS maps to get to different places. They also have connected car technologies that have them communicate with other vehicles for traffic efficiency.
Human error is a factor of car accident compensation claims. When we’re drunk, erratic driving can result to the loss of one or many human lives. Emotional response to bad traffic or unethical driving of other motorists could lead to disasters that can be costly and life-changing.
But still, the early days of self-driving cars are just about to start and claims management companies will certainly have their hands full trying to resolve many accidents from failed prototypes and first-generation cars.
