Law Details Product Liability Risks for Highly Automated Vehicles

Shook Partner Grant Law was interviewed by Corporate Disputes to discuss litigation risks associated with the implementation of highly automated and connected vehicles. Law explains recent technological developments in the area, the difference between automated and connected vehicles and possible product liability claims that could arise if a collision occurs.

“Manufacturers should remain cautious about how they ‘brand’ ADAS technologies so as to avoid implying that the technologies have more autonomous capabilities than they do,” Law notes. “They should continue to communicate to consumers in clear and concise language that ADAS features are for ‘driver assistance’ and not to replace attentive driving.”
