Michigan auto no-fault law governs the outcome of essentially every car accident in the state. However, the Michigan Auto No-Fault Act is incredibly complex. In addition, the recent reforms signed into law further complicated the system. Here you will find everything you need to know about our state’s unique auto no-fault law.
Car accidents are unexpected and stressful, however, it’s important to act quickly and intentionally in order to preserve evidence and properly document your accident. Learn more about what you need to do immediately following a crash.
From the moment of your accident, the clock is ticking. While you typically have three years from the date of the accident to file a car accident lawsuit, strict notification requirements may also apply.
While your own insurance provider pays your no-fault benefits, typically the at-fault driver’s insurance pays non-economic and excess economic damages. In instances where the negligent driver doesn’t have enough in liability coverage, they may be personally responsible for the excess amount.
Unfortunately, many people break Michigan law by driving without the required auto no-fault insurance. Purchasing optional uninsured motorist coverage helps protect you and your family from uninsured drivers or hit-and-run drivers where the insurer is unknown.
When you’re in a car accident, you have no control over the amount of insurance coverage the other driver has. Underinsured motorist coverage protects you against drivers who carry minimal auto insurance policies.
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. Other types of auto insurance, such as comprehensive, collision, and liability, reimburse for damages depending on who is determined to be at fault for the collision.
