Professor Bryant Walker Smith is one of the world’s leading legal experts on transportation technologies, and his research focuses on issues of risk and trust in new technologies, especially automated driving systems and unmanned aerial systems.

How do minimal risk conditions (MRC) factor into the future of this technology and should there be better standards regarding expected risk? More simply put, it might be time to rethink the relationship between the MRC and the automated driving system to allow for environmental consideration.

Legal Beagle- Injury Law Podcast: Nick Rowley
In this episode, Nick Rowley, one of the most well known trial attorneys America, discusses the Fairness Act. The Fairness Act is a reform to MICRA. In 1975, the state of California passed a law called the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA). This law put a cap on damages for medical malpractice claims. MICRA set a cap of $250,000 on medical malpractice claims. This amount has NEVER been adjusted for inflation over the almost 50 years it has been in place. The Fairness Act reforms MICRA to adjust for the increase in inflation so that the cap more accurately reflects today's dollars. Nick tells the story of why changing this law is so important to him. Nick also exposes the political corruption in California and why MICRA has never been changed. Nick has offered to give up his license to practice law in California in exchange for a more fair and just system in California. This podcast was re-purposed from the Nation State of Play podcast. A special thank you to Bryan Miller, JC Polk and all of those at Neptune Ops and IVC Media for sharing this content with us.
