SAN FRANCISCO, March 22 (Reuters) - The daughter of the woman killed by an Uber self-driving vehicle in Arizona has retained a personal injury lawyer, underlying the potential high stakes of the first fatality caused by a robotaxi.

The law firm of Bellah Perez in Glendale, Arizona, said in a statement it was representing the daughter of Elaine Herzberg, who died on Sunday after being hit on a dark street by the Uber self-driving SUV. (Reporting by Alexandria Sage Editing by James Dalgleish)
