... no one really knows what the next ten or twenty years are going to look like when it comes to making sure that drivers who are the victims in car crashes are fairly compensated.

Google recently announced that it will be disclosing any incidents involving its new driverless cars on an upcoming dedicated web site. As discussed in a June 8, 2015 article published by Nasdaq, the powerful tech company maintains that none of the minor collisions reported so far have been caused by its computer-driven cars, which such industry players as Tesla CEO Elon Musk believe may very well revolutionize driving later on this century. “The information that Google posts on its site promises to be extremely interesting for everyone concerned with automotive safety. However, the arrival of the driverless car is just one of many new technological factors that are likely to have an enormous impact on an already extremely complex legal landscape,” said the Law Offices of Burg and Brock, a personal injury firm dealing largely with vehicular issues. “It underlines the reality that, as our world grows more complicated, it’s more important than ever that accident victims seek out legal aid that is both highly experienced and deeply knowledgeable.”

The Los Angeles-based law firm, headed by attorney Cameron Yadidi Brock, has handled numerous cases involving automotive and motorcycle accidents and, therefore, an increasing number of cases involving a range of technology. “The most obvious change has been the ubiquity of smart phones, which present a constant temptation to drivers. Distracted driving – always a danger on the road – has become a far worse problem in recent years. Legally speaking, however, these cases may very well be simple compared to future cases where drivers and their lawyers might attempt to argue that their car’s technology is responsible for a collision where they would otherwise be personally at fault.”

“Between the arrival of cars that are more and more sophisticated in terms of high tech features, and the constant proliferation of GPS, traffic-related smart phone apps, and the like, no one really knows what the next ten or twenty years are going to look like when it comes to making sure that drivers who are the victims in car crashes are fairly compensated. It’s therefore going to be more and more important that plaintiffs seek out lawyers who understand the intricacies of transportation, modern technology, and personal injury law. Our legal team has been involved in with an enormous variety of vehicular cases involving such complex matters as wrongful death, brain and spinal injuries, burn injuries, and product liability…and a great many of them involving the latest in modern technology. It’s that kind of experience that people who are seeking to be made whole following an accident will want to turn to in coming years,” said the Law Offices of Burg and Brock.
