Self-driving vehicles have higher crash rates, study shows

A study recently conducted in Michigan revealed that self-driving vehicles have a higher chance of being involved in accidents than vehicles that are operated by humans, USA Today reported on October 31.

According to the University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute, driverless vehicles are involved in five times as many accidents as conventional vehicles. The study clarified that the self-driving cars were never at fault for the accidents, and that human passengers were always present in case the need to take over arose.

The study had to take into consideration the number of self-driving cars and the number of human-operated cars on the roads, and stated that the statistic is extrapolated from the number of vehicles and miles logged by each type of car.

Being involved in a car accident often results in financial loss due to expensive medical treatments and follow up appointments during recovery. If you have been injured in an auto accident that you did not cause, you may be able to pursue compensation for any payments you were forced to make during the healing process.
