The Reason You May Need A Tesla Accident Lawyer: The Skepticism Surrounding The Safety Of Tesla
What seemed a distant vision of the future is now our modern reality.
Autonomous vehicles are growing in popularity fairly quickly in the 21st century. Ever since SpaceX CEO Elon Musk unleashed its first model of self-driving vehicles, there have been numerous iterations of this modern piece of technology released in the public.
As a matter of fact, it’s become so prevalent that self-driving vehicles are infiltrating the rideshare service industry. Autonomous rideshare vehicle service Waymo is currently at its beta phase in Los Angeles and is already operating in several major cities in Arizona and California.
Self-driving vehicles themselves have been met with much scrutiny and concern from the general public. Particularly, the company that pioneered them: Tesla.
A lot of people are concerned about how the development of this self-driving technology is outpacing legislative regulations. But Tesla remains firm in their claim: these autonomous driving vehicles are “safer” than human-operated cars.
And indeed, the features that Tesla autonomous vehicles seem to have arguably support their claim sufficiently well. It’s equipped with an advanced driver assistance system that enables it to navigate the roads using sensors, cameras, and radars to adequately respond to their environment among many other things.
But Forbes has reported that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has recently called for a recall on approximately 363,000 Tesla vehicles due to the concerns about its full self-driving beta software.
Moreover, a woman was recently subjected to a permanent physical disability due to malfunctions in Tesla’s technology and was later awarded a hefty settlement of $13,000,000 to compensate for damages.
No matter how well Tesla’s claims hold up (their self-driving vehicles being safer than human-operated cars), the skepticism surrounding its safety is warranted. Which is why you may need a Tesla accident lawyer to guide you through obtaining justice and a Tesla lawsuit settlement.
In the off-chance that you are affected by such an accident, you will need a Tesla accident attorney. Especially if you end up having the following catastrophic injuries:
Spinal Cord Injury
A spinal cord injury is life-altering and catastrophic. Getting injured in this way usually indicates that the people affected have experienced a fatal accident, which requires extensive (and expensive) treatment from medical providers. As a result, people who have gotten a spine injury from a Tesla accident are a lot more likely to get million dollar settlements.
People who have a spine injury either have a complete or incomplete transection in the spine:
A complete spinal cord injury effectively cuts off the communication between the mind and body, making it nearly impossible to mobilize the parts below the point of injury.
An incomplete spinal cord injury, on the other hand, is its less severe counterpart as the point of injury is only slightly severed. It effectively weakens the communication between the mind and the body, making it extremely difficult to move certain joints, muscles, etc.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Another catastrophic injury that people get after an accident that they may need a Tesla attorney for is a traumatic brain injury.
There are different levels of severity for brain injuries. It can range from mild, molderate, to severe.
Mild cases are known as concussions, and while the least serious, still needs careful attention and treatment for patients to make full recovery.
The moderate and severe cases are the more dire iterations of this injury, and may entitle those affected to a hefty Tesla lawsuit settlement if they play their cards right.
People may also be victims of wrongful death, which is what could unfortunately happen when a Tesla get in an accident. Family members of victims who have suffered such a tragic death suffer from great emotional distress.
Wrongful death accidents are complex, especially if it involves a Tesla. For this reason, you will definitely need a Tesla accident lawyer to collect the compensation you deserve.
