  • Who's to blame if a self-driving car crashes: human or machine?

    In today's post, we'd like to once more address the topic of self-driving cars, more specifically the one currently being tested by Google at its Mountain View, California headquarters. As some of our more frequent readers may have noticed, we've hinted previously at a very important legal issue concerning self-driving cars but have never really gone in depth into the issue.

    We'd like to start today's post with a linguistic exercise you may have already seen before on the Internet: what do you call the circular intersection of several streets?

But while some chalk this up to regional dialects, we wanted to point out today that at least ...

Whether an accident occurs here in California or across the nation in another state, we like to draw attention to these cases because we think it's important for all of our readers to recognize what elements of a crash can lead to compensation and when obtaining a lawyer ...
