Who will be held responsible when self-driving cars crash?

Autonomous cars will likely be appearing on Oklahoma roads in the near future. The semi-autonomous Mercedes-Benz S550 is already available, and Tesla and Google are currently testing autopilot vehicles. Meanwhile, Apple is rumored to be designing its own self-driving car.

Oklahoma's roads are some of nation's deadliest

Oklahoma residents have good reason to be cautious when venturing out onto state roads according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Road fatalities across the country average 10.7 per 100,000 people, but that number rises to 18.9 deaths per 100,000 people in Oklahoma. This makes Oklahoma statistically the third most dangerous state for road users with only the roads of Montana and Mississippi being more hazardous. Road users in the District of Columbia are the least likely to be killed, according to the NHTSA figures.

Avoiding surgical error in the operating room

As some Oklahoma people have unfortunately found out, surgical mistakes happen and may be responsible for many adverse events suffered by hospital patients. Some of these errors may include an infection that might have been avoided, surgery on the wrong site and an instrument or other item left inside a patient.
