When you are out driving around, we know that you do not want to think about getting into an accident. Unfortunately, we know that they happen sometimes. We also know that as vehicle technology changes, so do the nature of accidents.
Electric vehicles are becoming very popular and their numbers will only continue to climb as we work to get ourselves off of fossil fuels. But how safe are electric vehicles? Do we know all of the dangers they pose?
At the Dan Doyle Law Group, we want to help you answer these questions. If you need a West Chester electric vehicle accident attorney, you can count on us to secure the compensation you deserve.
New Ideas And Technology
It was not long ago when we did not have electric cars on our roadways. Now, there are around 750,000 electric vehicles on the roads in the United States. You have probably seen some of the charging stations popping up in different places.
We know that these vehicles have been plagued with problems and many of those problems have to do with the batteries they use.
Have you seen the news stories related to vehicle fires that occur due to electric vehicle batteries? It seems that even first responders are struggling to figure out how to cope with these situations. Tesla itself recommends that first responders letting any of their vehicles that catch fire burn out instead of putting the fire out.
How does this help you if you are in an accident with one and cannot get out of the way?
At the Dan Doyle Law Group, we see that the consumers are the test subject for these electric vehicles, which is why we want to help when they cause you harm. The potential for personal injuries and property damage from an electric vehicle is real and the threat needs to be taken seriously.
A Note On Autonomous Vehicles
Autonomous vehicles, or self-driving vehicles, are often electric and are being tested across our roadways now. As time goes on, we will see more and more of these vehicles on the roadways. If one of these vehicles causes a car accident, the liability situation will be complicated.
If you are involved in an accident with a self-driving electric car, seek qualified legal assistance.
