Automobile accidents probably account for more deaths outside the each year than any other and cost people and insurance companies billions of dollars in losses each year.
All you have to do is listen to the radio. Even non-fatal crashes yield hospital expenses, loss of work, loss of enjoyment of life and loss of property. If someone is severely injured or killed or if one or both of the drivers was intoxicated at the time of the accident, your state is likely to prosecute the person at fault.
