Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Lawson, Heidrick, and Soular (LHS) present three criticisms in regard to Johnson-Flanigan-Weeks' (JFW) study "An Empirical Investigation of the Costs of Adopting No-fault Insurance Systems: 1971-1980," Journal of Insurance Regulation, December 1983. The JFW study found that no-fault has the effect of increasing the cost of automobile insurance. The purposes of this comment are to respond to the LHS criticisms and to present support for the conclusion of the previous study.
