Family of Tesla Model X Fatality Hires Law Firm, Plans to Sue

Family of Tesla Model X Fatality Hires Law Firm, Plans to Sue

In response to questions from Consumer Reports, Tesla said it releases information about crashes to correct misinformation, either from the drivers involved or from erroneous media reports.

"Such releases of incomplete information often lead to speculation and incorrect assumptions about the probable cause of a crash, which does a disservice to the investigative process and the traveling public", the NTSB said. As of the end of 2017, Tesla reported more than $850 million in customer deposits, including for the Model 3. The agency's chairman, Robert Sumwalt, said in a statement that Tesla CEO Elon Musk was informed of the decision by phone and letter. Today, the NTSB announced it kicked Tesla off the team looking into what happened, and how to stop it recurring. Tesla also said it plans to complain to Congress. When I visited Tesla's headquarters for a Model S test drive past year, the spokeswoman made a point of walking me through the various safety warnings a driver sees both before and during Autopilot use. Even if it means getting booted from a government investigation into its own vehicle.

Tesla is no longer a party to the federal investigation into a deadly crash involving one of its vehicles in California last month, the government and company said Thursday.

Smith said plaintiffs suing Tesla could point to alternative designs, such as General Motors Co's semi-autonomous Super Cruise system which tracks eye movement to monitor whether a driver pays attention.

Musk also envisions a car-sharing platform to better utilise passenger-carrying potential in cars that would otherwise be sat outside owners' homes for the majority of the time.

"We believe the sustainable production rate for the second quarter of 2018 is most likely below the 2,000 vehicle mark the company achieved in the final week of the [first] quarter", Goldman analyst David Tamberrino wrote Tuesday. Tesla released its strongest statement yet blaming the driver, Walter Huang, for what happened, but his family and their new attorney are fighting back. Telsa wants the Model Y to become its volume seller when it hits the market, meaning it should be more affordable than the Model X.

Elon Musk's smart auto manufacturing company has been officially removed from the investigation into the fatal crash. The firm said its preliminary review of the crash suggested Autopilot was defective. Tesla is extremely clear that Autopilot requires the driver to be alert and have hands on the wheel.

The safety board has in some cases thrown airlines, aircraft manufacturers and unions off of investigations in cases where they were either making unauthorised statements or not producing information the NTSB expected of them. The automaker noted that Tesla vehicles with Autopilot engaged had driven through the same area hundreds of times before without incident. NTSB said it found no defect in the Autopilot system and that Tesla had updated the system since that crash.

Huang's family said on Wednesday it had hired law firm Minami Tamaki LLP to explore legal options, adding the firm believed the Autopilot feature probably caused his death. It said he took his hands off the wheel "several times" before the crash. "Tesla warns, but in products, liability warnings don't protect you against design defect claims", said University of SC law professor Bryant Walker Smith, who focuses on automated driving.
