\$50,000 - \$99,999 7.6%

According to the percentages from the above table1.3, less than 2% of the claims involve an amount greater than \$250,000, on the other hand over 55% of the claims are for the amount less than \$10,000. Over 40% of the claims lie between the range of \$10,000 to \$249,000; and according to the ADA survey, the statistics suggest that the cost involved is most claims are either for minor injuries or the need for corrective treatments.

According to the percentages from the above table1.3,
The book from which this table is taken apparently has a number of tables, this one being Table 1.3. However, I assume this is the sole table that you are extracting. Hence, it is fine to just refer to it within your submission as 'the above table'

From the above table, it is apparent that less than 2% of (the-omit) claims involve amounts greater than \$250,000, whilst over 55% of (the-omit) claims are for less than \$10,000. Over 40% of claims fall in the range (of-omit) \$10,000 to \$249,000; and according to the ADA (survey, the-omit) statistics, most claims are either for minor injuries or the need for corrective treatments.
