Increasingly, new automation technology is built into motor vehicles, taking over part or even all of the drivers' tasks. Who bears the risk when this new technology causes damage to individuals? Is it the owner or user of the autonomous vehicle itself or other traffic members?

Liability for Damage Caused by Autonomous Vehicles contains an assessment of how the current rules for product liability, traffic liability and fault liability could be applied to autonomous vehicles within six EU member states (viz. Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK). Furthermore, this book contains a meta-legal analysis of the possible legal solutions. It identifies three solution models, which are analyzed and evaluated as to each model's pros and cons, incorporating the different arguments and perspectives in the current debate and actual initiatives and developments in the member states.
