As the debate about the social and economic benefits of Autonomous Vehicles (AV) continues, 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 AV cyber liability exposures that arise? In our newly published report, "Autonomous Vehicles: Considerations for Personal and Commercial Lines Insurers," Munich Re America examines some possible exposures and their potential implications to the industry and society as AV technology develops over time.
