Who Pays for Car Accidents

In this new volume, two lawyers debate which kind of automobile insurance is the best, no-fault or tort liability. This book presents in one place all the legal, political, historical, and financial arguments about the two types of auto insurance. Under the fault system currently used by thirty-seven states, tort law provides that the party at fault in the accident pays the full damages of accident victims. Jerry J. Phillips favors this system, arguing that it allows for fair compensation to the injured and deters drivers from dangerous behavior on the road. Stephen Chippendale counters this claim with the argument that tort-law based insurance combines high cost and low benefits, and that those who truly profit from it are the lawyers representing injured clients, while their claims clog up the court system. A better solution, he proposes, would be "Auto Choice," a plan under which consumers would choose whether or not they wished to be eligible for damages from pain and suffering. With civility and respect, these two legal scholars present thoughtful and thorough arguments on both sides of the debate, giving readers a balanced view of an issue that affects nearly every American. It will be of particular value to those in the fields of law, policy, and insurance.

Warning: Making certain mistakes after an accident can make any insurance claims null and void, leaving you thousands of dollars out of pocket… If you want to learn how to do things the right way, then this short message will be the most important you ever read. Here’s why. In the United States last year there were 2.4 million car accidents In fact, most drivers are now likely to be in an accident at least once in their lives. And if you’ve never been in an accident before - believe me, you won’t know exactly what to do when it does happen Adrenaline is running high. You might be shaken up. There may be police on the scene. So it pays to learn the exact steps you need to take before you get into an accident This short book (you can read it from start to finish in less than 60 minutes) will show you the exact steps you need to take if the unfortunate does happen. Here's what you'll discover: What you may not know about leaving the scene of a minor accident The two words you should never say after an accident (doing this could land you a large bill at the end of the day without even realizing) The nine things to look for at the scene of a crash The unknown problem with waiting 48 hours after a crash to see a doctor How to avoid sleazy ambulance chasers and hire the right law firm - lawyers 5 hidden auto accident injuries (not just concussions and whiplash) Why you shouldn’t rely on smartphone apps to store your insurance details The startling link between car insurance and identity theft Why you should get multiple repair estimates The exact number of hours you should wait before contacting the police to get a police report Don’t hire an attorney before getting this straight - contingency The filing requirements for each state There’s also free bonus “at the scene” checklist included. You can print this off and keep it in your glove compartment so you are prepared if the unfortunate does happen And If you know someone who has recently passed their test - this book should be considered as much of a necessity as a tire jack and a hands free kit for their cell phone

Fatal Car Accidents of the Rich and Famous

A Frightful End Car crashes involving trees or other cars seem rather tame when you compare them to the death of dancer Isadora Duncan. Her accident was so unusual, shocking and bizarre, that it seems almost made-up.

Fatal Car Accidents of the Rich and Famous

Whenever we see a car crash, whether it’s the event itself or simply the aftermath, we can’t help but stare. If we attempt to deconstruct our fascination with road accidents, it can lead to some uncomfortable truths. Some of us are grimly drawn to the sheer devastation of the wreckage, and become transfixed as we scan it for body parts. Here the concept of ‘morbid curiosity’ can be applied – and not just to the weirdoes. In fact, most people are guilty of finding it irresistible to look. This phenomenon is surely the origin of phrases like ‘car crash TV’, or when something is described as, ‘like a car accident’, due to how horrible it is to look at.

The Effect of Vehicle Characteristics on Road Accidents

The Effect of Vehicle Characteristics on Road Accidents investigates whether vehicle characteristics related to handling and stability contribute to road accidents. Using multiple regression analysis, this book addresses driver and vehicle effects separately in order to define both the magnitude of the handling/accident causation problem as well as the relative importance of the various performance measures. This monograph is comprised of six chapters and begins with detailed studies of accidents to determine the circumstances which lead to loss of control or overturning of a car on the road, and which accidents are likely to be influenced by the handling and stability characteristics of cars. Accident rates for these types of accident are then examined for the more popular models of car. Measures of vehicle handling and stability related to accident rates are also discussed. This text will be a useful resource for motorists and road engineers as well as transportation officials.

Head Injury Simulation in Road Traffic Accidents

In this work the development of a new geometrically detailed finite element head model is presented. Special attention is given to sulci and gyri modelling, making this model more geometrically accurate than others currently available. The model was validated against experimental data from impact tests on cadavers, specifically intracranial pressure and brain motion. Its potential is shown in an accident reconstruction case with injury evaluation by effectively combining multibody kinematics and finite element methodology.
