Problems with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
Many modern automobiles employ complex computer systems to improve the safety features provided onboard the vehicle. In recent years, many of these safety features have worked to address problems with driver errors instead of simply providing additional bodily protection. These computer systems, known as advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS, can be useful in collision prevention. However, they are not perfect.
If your vehicle’s ADAS fails, it can leave you with worse injuries than if you did not have this system at all. To discuss your legal options following your auto accident, contact the Waukesha auto defect attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today by calling 800-242-2874.
The assistance systems included in many new auto models provide important benefits for those drivers by increasing driver awareness or improving upon mistakes made by a driver. When these systems fail, though, the driver can be left without an important feature that may have prevented their injury in an accident.
The following systems are included in some vehicles, providing motorists with an extra level of safety:
- Drowsiness warnings
- Improved night vision and lighting
- Improved traction controls
- Speed controls
- Bind spot detection devices
- Rear-view cameras
These safety features can prove useful for many drivers. However, a driver that learns to rely on one of these ADAS devices may find themselves in harm’s way should the system fail.
If you have been harmed because of a malfunction involving a safety feature of your vehicle, there may be legal action available against that manufacturer.
