Paying for Auto Injuries: A Consumer Panel Survey of Auto Accident Victims

Wednesday, September 1, 1999
This study of the reports of nearly 6,000 people who were injured in auto accidents examines: types, variety, and severity of injuries, as well as their treatment; economic losses; the role of various sources of reimbursement, (including auto, health, workers’ compensation, and disability insurance and government programs); attorney representation; and claimant satisfaction with auto injury settlements. Paying For Auto Injuries contains 44 tables, graphs, and charts that, along with text, provide rare insights into the experiences of auto accident victims. Also, there are over 50 supplementary tables in the appendix. Comparative data are provided from similar studies conducted in 1992, 1986, and 1977.
