Top Law Firm Handling Tesla Lawsuits

A self-driving car sounds like an amazing thing. The freedom to take your hands off the wheel and multitask while driving is the kind of thing we see when we watch science fiction movies. Unfortunately, Tesla and other manufacturers pushed self-driving and autopilot features to the market that have been linked to deadly car accidents and collisions.

No matter how safe commercials and ads try to make self-driving cars, there are hidden dangers involved with these systems that take legal expertise and experience when brought to the court of law.

Why why Tesla cars recalled?

Nearly 2 million Tesla vehicles were recalled in 2023 after examining nearly 1,000 accidents where the Autopilot or self-driving feature was engaged. Ultimately, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced the recall after determining the Autopilot system doesn’t adequately prevent drivers from misusing it.

 

What Tesla makes and models were affected?

The Tesla recall includes models from as early as 2012, including:

  • 2012-2023 Tesla Model S
  • 2016-2023 Tesla Model X
  • 2017-2023 Tesla Model 3
  • 2020-2023 Tesla Model Y

How many Tesla Autpilot crashes occured?

Since 2019, there have been nearly 750 crashes and car accidents where Tesla’s Autopilot was engaged. Of those, 17 fatalities were recorded.

How could Tesla's Autpilot feature be defective?

While many investigations are still pending, Tesla’s Autopilot feature is similar to other types of crash avoidance systems found in modern vehicles.

Autopilot and crash avoidance systems, like any piece of software and technology, can be prone to defects and improper logic. From sensors to faulty programming, there are many avenues to explore when an injury is sustained where Autopilot or crash avoidance systems were present.
