Google Glass Used In Personal Injury Lawsuits

  • April 9, 2014

The Google Glass has literally changed the way we look at technology. With “wearables,” being more and more prevalent, whether it be the Android watch, or Google Glass, it’s becoming clear people are finding more and more creative uses. We never thought we’d be writing this blog post, but it seems the legal system is getting a “tech” upgrade, above and beyond what anyone could predict.

The law firm of Fennemore Craig, a personal injury law firm from Phoenix, is letting clients communicate with their lawyers via Glass. Clients are able to document, via the Google glass, how their injuries impact their daily lives. Fennemore Craig hopes that this documentation, via Google Glass, will act as evidence. Fennemore Craig received the Google Glass units as a part of the Explorer Program.

It’s fascinating that something which was a novelty item, is now going to be potentially alter the way juries hear/see evidence. If the recordings from Google Glass are admitted into court as evidence, it redefines the future of litigation.

 “Jurors will now be able to see the nuances of a victim’s daily challenges firsthand,” Goodnow said.
