Emerging Issues in Motor Vehicle Product Liability Litigation—Distracted Driving

September 20, 2016

Session Eight
Tuesday, September 20, 2016
1:00 pm – 2:00pm EST

Automobile and application providers are competing to fulfill increased consumer demands to be connected to the world even while driving. According to the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTI), engaging in visual-manual subtasks (such as reaching for a phone, dialing, and texting) associated with the use of hand-held phones and other portable devices increased the risk of getting into a crash by three times (May 29, 2013). VTI also found that typical drivers participate in some form of distracted driving activity over 50 percent of the time. Join us in a discussion regarding the clash between personal responsibility and assigning blame to an application provider or vehicle manufacturer.
