Do all car accident cases proceed to the Claims Assessment & Resolution Service?

No. Cases can be exempted from CARS in circumstances including the insurer has declined liability, where the insurer has alleged contributory negligence of at least 25%, where the insurer has declined to indemnify the owner or driver of the motor vehicle and where the insurer alleges fraud.
