Do you listen to music every time you get in the car? A lot of us do, especially during our teenage years. Some people actually feel fairly awkward if they're driving in silence, like something is missing.
There's an old adage in business that applies to vehicle drivers just as much as it applies to service providers:

In most jurisdictions, you can recover damages for this, too.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can result from a number of incidents, including contact sports, physical battery, car crashes, falls and gunshot wounds.

They also refer to TBIs as the leading cause of disability and death in the world.
