No-fault insurance – also referred to as personal injury protection (PIP) – helps cover medical expenses and loss of income when passengers in automobiles in Michigan are injured in car accidents. These benefits are available to anyone covered by a no-fault policy (barring limited disqualification situations), regardless of who is at fault for the crash. This is what sets no-fault apart.
