Drunk drivers pose a serious threat to others on the roadway. Sometimes life-threatening injuries result when negligence on the part of the drunk driver causes a car crash. Those involved often have injuries that they will have to deal with for the rest of their lives. Sometimes, however, a drunk driver causes only property damage. The at-fault driver can still be held accountable in such situations.
