Subrogation lawyers Jason Sullivan and Rebecca Wright presented on the cutting-edge topic of Driverless Cars and Damages: Subrogation in a New Era. The session focused on the rapidly developing technology and its potential impact on driver safety and the subrogation industry, as subrogation involving autonomous vehicles is still a new and changing field. Sullivan and Wright discuss what it means for auto insurance subrogation as more tortfeasors in auto incidents become car manufacturers. 

How do Driverless Vehicles affect Subrogation Pursuit in Motor Vehicle Incidents?

With autonomous vehicles, the human tortfeasor in a traditional vehicle accident is now a non-material computer program with a long and complicated chain of custody. You must factor in design, creation, testing, circumstances of the incident, possible liability of the other party, and more. Proper subrogation case management in cases of driverless cars requires experienced, subrogation-focused attorneys who stay on the front end of the complications that ever-evolving technology presents to the subrogation process.
