A current recall of a faulty software component affecting 1.25 million Chrysler vehicles is causing side air bags not to deploy and causing issues with the seatbelts. Many components of modern vehicles are managed by software programs, and when they malfunction, the results can be very dangerous. Another example would be recent issues with Uber’s self-driving cars getting into accidents.
As software starts controlling more vehicle functions, we are likely to see more software components recalled. This causes questions to arise, such as, is the auto manufacturer responsible for the flaw? Alternatively, is it the software company?
Proving that software was the cause of an accident could be very difficult. Major car manufacturers and software companies have strong legal resources and trained professionals on their side. Pairing with an experienced attorney can help you get help from professionals who study automobile function and the causes of accidents. If you think that an unknown car error caused you to get in an accident, start taking action today.
