APIL recently commented that accidents involving driverless cars should fall within the existing motoring insurance provisions in the Road Traffic Act 1988.

APIL calls for an amendment to the Road Traffic Act 1988 to provide clarity. At the moment there is a push for these claims to be dealt with under complex product liability law, but given that they relate to a car, APIL feels that this should be brought under one roof as it were. Our Charlotte Pegman agrees with this.

HPW see a lot of personal injury claims involving motor vehicles and as such hope that this can be dealt with sensibly rather than with lots of litigation taking place to resolve this issue.

A practical approach is to bring these claims under the usual insurance policies which all drivers must have.

If you have any personal injury queries please do send them through to our Charlotte Pegman at cip@hpwsolicitors.co.uk
