Lastly in this litigious society who will you sue if an empty car has an accident? The owner, the coder, or the local government who probably designed a crappy intersection or whatnot that induces the cars to crash at that spot.
All of them?
I read once that the decision on who to sue was always based on who would be able to pony up the most money. To a victim's lawyer, liability is directly related to the potential for profit. Of course, that's just who to sue FIRST. Parent post is correct, all of them eventually.
