“Ranging from no fault to strict liability, countries have taken drastically different approaches to the liability motorists face post-collision. Distinguished speakers from around the world will discuss the laws in their respective countries and offer their thoughts on which approach works best and how to better improve motor vehicle accident liability laws. Ancillary to automobile liability is the future of liability when autonomous vehicles are in accidents. For this part of the symposium, speakers will address the liability implications and insurance adjustments necessary in a future with driverless cars.”
