ASSESSMENT OF THE EFFECT OF NO-FAULT INSURANCE ON FATAL AND INJURY ACCIDENT RATES
The study assesses the effects of no-fault insurance on fatal and injury accident rates. Past studies are reviewed and analyzed. A statistical model is developed which compares the change in fatal and injury accident rates of the 16 no-fault states with the remaining 34 states which use a tort liability system of automobile accident reimbursement. No-fault states are compared as a group with the tort states, and are then compared individually. The study concludes that there is no evidence that no-fault insurance affects fatal and injury accident rates.
