Are pedestrians ever at fault for an accident?

Throughout a lifetime, most people have been on both sides of the situation. Most of us have been the pedestrian jogging across the street, trying to make the most of the crosswalk light that (probably) changed while crossing. Most of us have also been the driver, forced to slam on the brakes for someone who was not paying attention.

Car accidents involving self-driving cars

Car accidents involving self-driving cars are all over the news. Earlier this year, a Tesla Model S was in "autopilot" when it crashed into and killed a pedestrian on a Florida roadway. The vehicle not only failed to stop at a stop sign, it also plowed into a parked car at the same three-way stop intersection. While this particular accident is still under investigation, there have been other devastating problems with the autonomous driving features on newer cars.

Auto product liability and federal probes of faulty air bags

Auto Product Liability can be a contributing factor in a car accident. We have been hearing about the dangers of Takata air bags for years. Some of these devices have inflators that become unstable and explode with so much force that metal shards are sent flying through vehicles. This can cause serious or even fatal injuries. Air bags are intended to save lives, not cause serious harm or wrongful death.
