Every week, I field questions from potential clients regarding whether or not they have a personal injury claim stemming from a motor vehicle accident that can be pursued in the Courts.  The answer can be found in the history of state No-Fault laws.  The New York No-Fault law was passed in 1974 by the New York state legislature in an effort to deal with a crisis in the courts.  There were too many car accident claims and not enough courts and judges.  The effect of that situation was the creation of a log jam that prevented cases from getting a jury trial.  The No-Fault law
