With electric vehicles (EVs) on the rise as an eco-friendly driving option, Texas residents have seen more and more Tesla charging stations in their areas. These cars have features like self-driving mode, which may seem like an innovative, desirable feature for drivers, but autonomous driving and EV charging stations can be dangerous and put people at high risk of serious injuries. Several parties are responsible for ensuring EVs and charging stations function safely. Unfortunately, people may neglect this duty and cause harm to those using them.
If you suffered injuries at a Tesla EV charging station due to someone else’s negligence, our experienced lawyers at Mott & Moffett can help you hold them accountable and fight for the compensation you deserve. We have the knowledge, skills, and resources to take on your claim and conduct a detailed investigation.

Who May Be Responsible for Injuries Sustained by Tesla EV Charging Stations in Texas?
Accidents at Tesla EV charging stations can happen quickly, making it difficult to know who is responsible. We listen to your story and document essential details to determine an at-fault party. Potentially liable parties for EV charging station accidents include the following:
- Manufacturers: If a defective part in the car or the charging stations caused the technology to malfunction, the manufacturer might be liable for any accidents and injuries from this negligence.
- Designers: EVs and charging stations use software and other technology that require careful design. If an accident occurs due to a design flaw, the person or team responsible may be held accountable.
- Installation team: For charging stations to function properly, they must be installed correctly and with the utmost attention. Therefore, an installation team may be responsible for injuries due to an error in building the station.
- Repair team: If repairers fail to fix an issue with an EV charging station or cause another problem, they may be responsible if any accidents or injuries occur.
EV charging stations are not the only dangers drivers face. The self-driving feature may make people pay less attention to the road, and the software vehicles used to implement these features can shut down or not function properly. While the EV driver is not driving the car themselves, they are responsible for paying attention to the road and operating their vehicle safely. In the same way, those involved with designing, building, and installing EV charging stations owe users a duty of care to ensure the stations are safe.
