California issues important rules regarding self-driving cars

Technology moves so quickly in the automotive industry that it can be difficult to stay on top of new trends. A relatively new phenomenon that people in Orange County may have seen is the self-driving car, which is intended to reduce traffic accidents. However, leadership in the state is concerned about the vehicle’s safety, which has prompted several important new rules.

Potentially dangerous guardrails under study for injury risks

When it comes to liability for personal injury, wrongful death and survival actions, under some circumstances it is not only individuals and companies that can be held accountable but also the state of California itself. This potential liability exposure is the subject of an ongoing review by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) of guardrails that have been installed in this state which have been found to be potentially defective in another state.

Pedestrian accidents can be among the most serious

Some things seem more outwardly impressive than others, at least from a visual standpoint. For example, if you see two vehicles involved in a collision, this might seem like a more serious form of accident than one in which a vehicle strikes a pedestrian. But looks can be deceiving.

What is negligent infliction of emotional distress?

You can call it common knowledge that in an accident between two vehicles, or when a car hits a pedestrian, a person who is injured as a result can have a claim for negligence against the driver responsible. But that is not the only way that someone can become a plaintiff from a car accident; indeed, another type of potential plaintiff can exist, one who might not even have been present at the accident.
