Auto Insurance Claims in New Jersey and Pennsylvania
Since the introduction of the automobile to modern American society, accidents and their resulting costs have been a source of concern. Naturally, horse-and-buggy, train, boat, and other transportation-related accidents preceded those of the automobile, offering ideas for the proper treatment of auto accident costs. Yet, no prior form of travel had as widespread an effect on the human social structure as did the automobile. The car ultimately touched the lives of all Americans. By the start of the twenty-first century, approximately one in every two Americans owned a car, resulting in over six million automobile accidents and 41,000 deaths annually on U.S. roads and highways.
