You need directions so you go to Google Maps. It gives you clear, concise instructions on how to get to your destination. So you begin walking. But wait! Google Maps forgot to tell you to not walk into on-coming traffic! What do you do? Sue, sue, sue! That's the basis for this story:
According to the complaint, Rosenberg utilized Google Maps on Jan. 19, 2009, on her Blackberry to get walking directions from 96 Daly Street in Park City, Utah, to 1710 Prospector Ave. in the same city. The directions told her to walk on Deer Valley Drive, also known as State Route 224, for 0.6 miles . . . On that road, she was subsequently struck by the car driven by Harwood. As a result of “Google’s careless, reckless and negligent providing of unsafe directions” Rosenberg has suffered “severe permanent physical, emotion and mental injuries” that include more than $100,000 in medical expenses, according to the suit.
