Vehicle accidents are the predominant source of personal injury claims and suits. Fortunately almost all accidents are covered by one or more insurance policies, even if the offending driver has none.
Most soft-tissue and other relatively modest personal injuries can be resolved without going to court, sometimes quickly. But more serious vehicle accidents often must be litigated, particularly when personal injuries and insurance coverage are substantial.
