The Osgoode Hall Study was aimed at filling the factual lacuna which prevented an informed assessment of the Ontario system of compensating automobile accident victims. Those in charge of the study set out to collect and analyze statistical data which would illuminate the strength and weaknesses of the present system of loss distribution. A survey was designed which would discover the financial costs incurred by injured individuals and whether they were uncompensated, undercompensated or overcompensated for these costs. The project further aimed at describing the interrelation of the tort, private loss insurance and government reparation schemes, the role of lawyers and courts and the attitudes of the injured toward the present system. The desirability of any proposed reform of the Ontario system could then be judged on a statistical basis.
