Injured victims may even have to endure surgery, physical therapy, and numerous visits to the doctor in order to fully recover. This can all be time and energy-consuming, not to mention expensive.
When drivers get behind the wheel intoxicated, distracted, or fatigued, or they choose to drive aggressively or thoughtlessly, they can be held accountable for their actions if they end up causing an accident.
