New Technology, New Risks: What are they?

wrong-way

Technology is becoming more and more ingrained in our everyday lives. There is no stopping it now. We live in an age where all the worlds known information can be accessed by simply pulling our your smartphone. While these new developments are designed to make our lives easier, some may actually put you at more risk of hurting yourself or others. Because of this, personal injury attorneys are preparing for any issues these products may cause. What are the biggest risks as of right now? Self-driving cars rank pretty high on the list. As well as the rising popularity in drones.

Flying anchors.

Ever since drones started to hit store shelves, we have seen a whole smorgasbord of issues. The FFA has received hundreds of complaints yearly from drones flying too close to planes. People flying these devices so high that they pose a risk to planes is not something to simply brush off. This is causing serious safety risks. However, that is not the only risks that we face from having drones apart of our daily lives. There have been reports of drones falling from the sky, and landing right on innocent bystander’s heads. While this has yet to cause any serious injuries, its only a matter of time before someone is seriously harmed because of a drone pilots negligence.

Crash Test.

Autonomous cars are one of the most hyped technologies of the 21st century. They have to potential to stop hazards that humans would not have to the ability to such as driving under the influence, falling asleep at the wheel, or anything else that impairs a persons ability to drive. However, this technology is not perfect yet. In fact, it is very far from it. Autonomous cars crash at a rate of 9.1 crashes per one million miles. That might not sound too bad, but compared to regular vehicles, it is a 479% increase in crashes.

Why do you need a lawyer?

The important question to ask if you find yourself in any of these situations is, who takes responsibility? Is it the drone or car operator? Is it the people who designed the faulty software? Maybe it is the manufacturer? These are hard questions to answer yourself.
