Now, Walter’s family is suing Tesla on wrongful death claims saying that the cause of death was Tesla’s negligence and misrepresentation of their product.
In opposition, Tesla wants to blame Walter Huang for not cooperating with the Autopilot feature. However, in an interview , it was discovered that certain features appeared faulty with the Autopilot software during regular commutes, suggesting that the technology may not be ready for the road.
The Tesla’s Autopilot made the decision to switch lanes, steering the car into the highway median, failing to brake as well, causing the car to impact and erupt in flames. While the accident is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety board (NTSB), Walter’s family is taking Tesla to court. Sevonne says the death of her husband never would have happened if the Autopilot feature was not turned on.
