A woman in the US is suing Google because its Maps service gave her the wrong walking directions.
Lauren Rosenberg claims that the directions caused her to get hit by a vehicle because they led her onto a busy highway.
The case, filed in the US District Court's Central Division in Utah, will decide whether Google can be considered liable for directions provided by its mapping service.
Rosenberg is demanding $100,000 (£69,000), and is also taking legal action against Patrick Harwood, the driver of the vehicle that hit her.
The walking directions Rosenberg searched for on her BlackBerry were from 96 Daly Street, Park City, Utah to 1710 Prospector Avenue, Park City, Utah.
Google clearly says on the route description that the "walking directions are in beta", and warns that "this route may be missing sidewalks or pedestrian paths".
Google added walking directions to its mapping services in July 2008, and warned at the time that the product was still in development and should not be trusted fully.
However, Rosenberg is pursuing her case. She claims the directions led her into danger because she was instructed to walk along Deer Valley Road, which is a rural highway with no safe pathway for pedestrians.
"The Defendant Google expects users of the walking map site to rely on the accuracy of the walking directions given," said Rosenberg's complaint filing.
"As a direct and proximate cause of Defendant Google's careless, reckless and negligent providing of unsafe directions, Plaintiff Lauren Rosenberg was led onto a dangerous highway, and was thereby stricken by a motor vehicle, causing her to suffer severe permanent physical, emotional, and mental injuries, including pain and suffering."
