If the accidents are piling up, when in fact, Tesla himself, it is sure to be brought up in a legal battle, the insurance expert said.
These incidents highlight an ever-changing landscape of the long-held assumptions about vehicle insurance, and the accident is the fault more of the automobile manufacturers is to provide tools that can automate the parallel park, avoid collisions, and to send, during the movement, among other things.
