Who Is Liable for a Self-Driving Car Accident in Boulder?

Colorado is a fault insurance state that requires at-fault drivers to pay for their victims’ damages. In a normal car accident, the liable party can be another driver, a government agency, or the manufacturer of a defective part. Because self-driving cars are a relatively new technology, determining fault can be difficult.

Self-driving vehicles rely on software to operate, and fully autonomous vehicles are not yet available on Boulder roads. In many cases, an operator is inside of the vehicle and able to intervene if necessary. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the collision, this operator, the manufacturer of defective hardware, or the manufacturer of defective software may be liable for the accident.

The Boulder self-driving car accident attorneys at Purvis Thomson, LLP can conduct an in-depth investigation into your accident and determine how it occurred. Our firm will enlist the help of experts who can analyze the vehicle and its components to see if any defects are present. Using this evidence, we will craft a compelling case for your right to compensation.

What to Do After an Autonomous Vehicle Accident

The moments after any type of car accident can be terrifying and disorienting. However, evidence is freshest immediately after the crash, and the actions you take will impact your future lawsuit or insurance claim. To protect your health and your right to compensation, take the following steps as soon as possible.

  • Call 911 and report the accident to the police. Colorado law requires most accidents to be reported to law enforcement, and taking this step can help fulfill this requirement. The officer will also create a report that you can use in your case.
  • Seek emergency medical attention even if you do not feel injured. Save all records related to your injuries and treatment.
  • If you are able, take as many photographs of the accident as possible. Photograph the vehicles involved, any debris in the area, your injuries, and the area around the collision.
  • Exchange contact, insurance, and license details with the operator of the autonomous vehicle. If there are any witnesses in the area, ask for their contact information as well.
  • Contact a Boulder attorney well versed in self-driving vehicle accident law as soon as possible to discuss your legal options.
