Self-Driving Cars Could Be Putting You at Risk as Their Numbers—and Their Shortcomings—Continue to Grow

A self-driving Uber vehicle—with a human safety driver behind the wheel in case of emergency—struck and killed an Arizona woman on Sunday, March 18, 2018. The victim, identified as 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg, is the first known pedestrian fatality caused by an autonomous vehicle.

According to preliminary reports, the self-driving vehicle was traveling approximately 40 mph in a 35 mph zone. At the moment of impact, the vehicle was in autonomous mode and did not slow down prior to the collision. (Autonomous mode means that the vehicle was driving on its own at the time the crash occurred. A human safety driver sat behind the wheel as a precaution.) The unsuspecting pedestrian was walking along the crosswalk with her bicycle when she was struck by the self-driving Uber SUV. The human safety driver exhibited no signs of impairment following the tragic collision. The accident occurred at night (at approximately 10:00 PM) and no inclement weather was involved.

Herzberg’s death is an ominous reminder that self-driving technology is still in its infancy. Meanwhile, state governments are grappling with how to best regulate robotic car testing while posing minimal risk to the public. However, the clock is clicking towards 2020 as driverless car related injuries, accidents, and fatalities continue to mount. 2020—it is the year purported to be the timeframe of large-scale deployment of self-driving vehicles on American roads.

Uber is not the only company experimenting with driverless technology. Google, Samsung, Volvo, Tesla, and BMW—just to name a few—are among a burgeoning list of tech companies and automakers that are exploring and actively testing driverless vehicles on the roads right now (particularly in states like Arizona and California where inclement weather is less of a concern and there are less regulatory hurdles to overcome). Earlier this March, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey revised an executive order allowing self-driving vehicles to drive on state roads without a safety test driver behind the wheel. California is poised to follow suit in April by also allowing companies to test vehicles on the road without a person in the driver’s seat.

As companies, like Uber, race to create the safest and most advanced autopilot technology, vulnerable road users—such as pedestrians, cyclists, vehicle drivers and their passengers—are at risk of colliding with robotic vehicles that fall short of their expectation to adjust for the volatility, complexity, and unpredictability of the human driving experience. Can artificial intelligence really be taught—as human drivers are—to account for every possible instance in which human lives are at stake? Can such a safety automotive wonder ever really be entrusted to respond with the same speed and pragmatism that the human mind possesses?

While the answers to these questions are elusive, it is important to contemplate not just how your life—but the lives of your loved ones—could be jeopardized by a growing industry of self-operating vehicles that tech companies and automakers worldwide envision to assume control of the roads in mass numbers over the decades to come.

If you or someone you know has been injured by a self-driving vehicle, please do not hesitate to contact Inserra Kelley Sewell, Personal Injury Attorneys. Our compassionate and competent team of legal professionals are dedicated to providing you with answers about your potential claim. At Inserra Kelley Sewell, your health, safety, and peace of mind are the reason we do what we do. Let us help you and keep you driving safely as the list of potential road dangers becomes more daunting and driverless vehicles prepare to inherit the road in droves.

Popular Dog Foods Found to Contain Euthanasia Drug

Recently, this firm put out a first ever informational blog to let readers know that their beloved dogs could be in jeopardy due to the dog food they are consuming.  Already, there is another instance impacting the beloved canine members of the family, so we wanted to get the word out again for our readership.  The  U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has done an investigation with findings that popular brands of dog food contain a euthanasia drug!  Smuckers owns the brands with the dog food brands and has already voluntarily withdrawn the products.  The brands are Gravy Train, Skippy, Ol’ Roy, and Kibbles ‘N Bits.  A large number of stores, including 4,700 Walmart stores, are pulling the dog foods from their shelves.   

Current standards for dog food labels do not make it likely that pet owners will know what is truly being fed to their beloved furry friends.  Smuckers was violating federal law that does not allow any level of euthanasia drug, pentobarbital, to be included in a pet food product.  Smuckers is not answering questions on how the drug got into their dog foods, leaving investigators to wonder whether the manufacturer is using dogs for its food that have been euthanized with the drug.  Until the company answers questions, this is what some would assume and that’s a very unpleasant possibility for the pet owner to take in.  The bottom line is that consumers return any of these brands they have in their home to the store where it was purchased, and that their personal veterinarian be contacted for dogs that have already consumed the product. 

Inserra Kelley Sewell, Personal Injury Attorneys, strives to keep its readership aware of potential dangers to themselves and their loved ones in this society ripe with product dangers and recalls.  In this case the danger is to the beloved furry member of your family. Do not hesitate to contact this firm for advice on possible avenues to compensation.         

Salmonella Health Alert With Fareway Chicken Salad

There is a new alert out from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on Salmonella dangers with chicken salad made and distributed by Fareway grocery stores based in Iowa.  Fareway distributed the subject chicken salad, made between December 15, 2017 to February 13, 2018, to their out of state locations as well as those in Iowa.  This includes Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Illinois Fareway stores.  Illnesses have been reported of Salmonella infection, which can include what is called Reactive Arthritis and/or Irritable Bowel Syndrome.  The most common symptoms with foodborne Salmonella illness includes diarrhea, abdominal cramps, elevated fever 12 to 72 hours after consumption, and these symptoms can be severe and cause the need for the consumer to be hospitalized.  As in many illness, there are populations especially vulnerable for more severe reactions, such as the elderly, people with suppressed immune systems, and young children/infants.  Salmonella infection generally lasts 4 to 7 days and most people do recover, barring complications. 

Consumers with any size deli container holding Fareway chicken salad, of various weights, should not consume the product, according to the FSIS and Iowa Department of Health.  It is recommended the product be thrown away or returned to the Fareway where it was purchased, and if you or a loved one has consumed the product, contact your medical provider immediately.  Do not hesitate to contact Inserra Kelley Sewell, Personal Injury Attorneys where our compassionate professionals can advise whether you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.           

Johnson & Johnson Will Pay Millions for Metal on Metal Hip Implants

Inserra Kelley Sewell has given its readership information in the past on the defective Pinnacle metal on metal replacement, with currently more than 9,000 cases filed against Johnson & Johnson and DePuy. A test case recently saw a jury award in Texas for six individual plaintiffs in the amount of $247 million dollars. This test trial was the third straight win for plaintiffs with injuries from the metal-on- metal hip replacements, which Johnson & Johnston and Depuy failed to warn consumer patients about. Individuals injured by the hip device implants suffered problems such as tissue death, bone erosion, and other injuries.

Johnson & Johnson has already vowed to appeal the process and Depuy has made the statement they will defend themselves in these lawsuits for the long-term. Depuy continues to claim the hip implants are effective, as per strong clinical data. Plaintiffs in these cases, however, contend they were not warned of the risks and the defendant companies hawk their metal-on- metal products by stating they are longer lasting than plastic or ceramic implants and commonly utilized in treatment.

Be a well-informed consumer and ask your doctor about whether you could be affected. If you or a loved one has already suffered damages from the Pinnacle metal-on- metal hip implants, do not hesitate to bring questions regarding your personal situation and possible claim to the caring legal experts at Inserra Kelley Sewell, where your health and safety is priority one.
