The agony and suffering of DUI accident victims is difficult for many to comprehend. The suffering goes beyond the pain of the injuries — although the injuries themselves are traumatic. There are huge medical bills, lost income from not being able to work, or the fear that one might lose his or her job because recovery will take time. Perhaps victims might not know how well he or she will be able to recover and is faced with being unable to do the job at the same level it was previously done.
