Abstract: When the All-Industry Research Advisory Council was formed in 1977, its first research project was a countrywide study of injuries resulting from automobile accidents. This led to publication in 1979 of a two-volume report, Automobile Injuries and their Compensation in the United States, which provided a unique and indispensable data base for almost all analysis of the auto injury compensation system in the U.S. Primary responsibility for the development of the survey was assumed by the Allstate Insurance Company. Every effort was made to see that all eligible injury claims were included in the study to ensure that a sample with the proper distribution of claims by size and coverage would be obtained. Each of the 29 participating companies was asked to submit data on all eligible files closed during the survey period. For this 1997 study, data were collected from 5 types of survey forms: Body Injury (BI), Uninsured Motorist (UM), Underinsured Motorist (UIM), Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Medical Payments (MP).
