Google’s self-driving car is looking for auto industry partners to bring the technology to market in the next five years. These driverless cars could possibly hurt personal injury lawyers and their businesses.
Over the years, new innovations and technology have decreased the number of fatalities with safer cars on the roads. If human error crashes are reduced by software in driverless cars then the number of damaged cars, people and deaths will be reduced. If injuries decrease then so will the need for services of a personal injury attorney.
There are still many barriers to hands-free driving systems hitting the market but it is important to see the big picture with any new innovation.
