San Diego residents may have heard about some of the interesting technologies that are being developed by automakers in order to help people avoid collisions. In recent years, a number of automakers have been working on building autonomy into vehicles, by allowing them to communicate with each other and send warnings to drivers when a car accident is imminent. Some of these programs even allow the car to take over and drive itself at times - braking at the last minute or taking over the steering wheel when the driver is not responding to demands.

Those who sustain brain injuries in California should always seek medical treatment as soon as possible, and they should also seek legal representation in order to obtain compensation for medical expenses from any responsible parties.
