Physical injuries from car accidents are talked about commonly, but what’s not talked about as much is the emotional trauma that victims of car accidents can suffer from long after the bruises and broken bones have healed.

Self-driving cars exist and the way they operate advances every day, which is hard to keep up with, especially when you’re not a tech guru. These self-driving cars, otherwise known as autonomous vehicles, have varying degrees of human intervention while driving.

More advanced autonomous vehicles can even interpret their surroundings and navigate without the driver.

Most of the time after a car accident, you’ll be dealing with your insurance company.

Adjusters may try to take advantage of that to reduce what their company pays out. But what happens if the adjuster makes an error?
