The rules governing the sources of financial compensation that are available to accident victims vary widely between states. This report catalogues and explains the current liability rules and insurance regulations in all fifty states. As an aid to understanding the patterns of rules within states, it classifies the states into ten groups, using a refinement of the traditional tort/no-fault/add-on system.
