Autonomous Vehicles

TASA ID: 2246

Driverless vehicles, or as they are called autonomous vehicles, are a major topic of interest these days.  A self-driving vehicle offers many advantages to the public, especially to the elderly and people with physical impairments who otherwise would not be able to drive. Then there is the issue that autonomous vehicles do not get drunk or become drowsy, and are not distracted by cell phones or children in the back seat. Thus they should, in principle, reduce the incidence of accidents and injuries to occupants. Another advantage suggested by the concept’s supporters is that by controlling speed and vehicle spacing patterns on highways, better overall fuel economy can be achieved and CO2 emissions reduced.

TASA ID: 1134

With about one third of the long span wood trusses in place for a 60' by 100' building being constructed as a convenience store, the trusses already erected fell over like dominos injuring three laborers.  The three workers sued a number of parties involved in the project including the crane rental company and the manufacturer and supplier of the trusses, claiming that they shared responsibility for the accident and that they should have taken action to prevent the collapse. The author was retained as an expert witness for the crane rental company.  Investigation and analysis of available facts established that the crane rental company was not responsible and should have had no liability.
