As analysts attempt to quantify the social and economic benefits of Autonomous Vehicle (AV) technology, the insurance industry is contemplating the impact, particularly as it applies to liability exposures.


  • Who will be liable when an AV is involved in an accident?
  • Will liability shift from driver to manufacturer as vehicle control shifts from human operator to autonomous systems?
  • Will accident–related liability exposure all but disappear?
  • How will we manage cyber liability exposures that may arise?

“Autonomous Vehicles: Considerations for Personal and Commercial Lines Insurers,” examines some possible exposures and their potential implications to the industry and society as AV technology develops.
