Wriggins is interested in insurance and society, particularly distributional issues such as the question of insurance mandates – whether in liability insurance or the Affordable Care Act. She also works on race, gender, and law, particularly in the personal injury system. For example, when an African-American person is injured in an accident, will he or she be compensated with the same amount of compensation as a white person? Are there parts of personal injury law that affect women differently from men? How has the legal system in this area treated people who do not happen to be white men?
