- Despite Accidents, Google Defends Driverless Cars
One of Google’s self-driving cars was involved in another accident last week, according to Google co-founder Sergey Brin who oversees the company’s self-driving car fleet.
Auto accidents, whether caused by human or computer, error are always dangerous and can lead to serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident, our Phoenix personal injury attorneyscan help get you the compensation you deserve.
Though the vehicles have now been involved in 12 accidents in the last six years, the tech giant refuses to release the accident reports from the incidents. They also continue to defend the new technology and its hope to make roads safer.
According to Google, the self-driving car has never been at fault in any of the accidents, though an employee was in control at the time of one of the accidents.
According to Chris Urmson, director of the program, the vehicles were hit from behind in most of the accidents, in addition to some freeway and traffic light incidents.
Consumer Watchdog, a group that has been highly critical of Google’s new venture, is demanding the company release the accident reports from the crashes, stating that it will give the public a better idea of the risks that the vehicles pose.
Unfortunately, both Google and the Department of Motor Vehicles, where the reports are filed, have refused the request out of privacy concerns for the other drivers involved.
Brin says that even if the reports were released without the names of the victims, the documents wouldn’t disclose anything more than the summary that the company has posted about the accidents.
Driverless vehicles present uncharted waters for regulators who are still grappling with ways to regulate the quickly growing technology.
The Google self-driving cars have driven more than 1.7 million miles, but there are still a lot more test miles to go before all of the kinks and issues are worked out.

Phillips law group is the best around!
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
