Michigan’s New Auto No-Fault Law
In May 2019, Michigan Legislature passed vast and sweeping changes to the state’s auto no-fault law which was then signed into law by Governor Whitmer. This legislation fundamentally changes how the Michigan no-fault insurance system operates and will affect literally every resident in the state.
The Michigan no-fault insurance reform debate is nothing new. In the name of providing premium rate relief, this new law, however, has no cost-saving guarantees for Michigan families. Furthermore, these hastily passed bills leave more questions and concerns with regard to how the injured in our state will access treatment.
Our attorneys have long understood the immense benefit of our state’s auto no-fault system. Because of this, we have remained actively engaged in the reform debate, as no-fault thought leaders and fierce advocates. Now, with the passing of this new legislation, we are committed to educating the public regarding these changes.
George Sinas, Stephen Sinas, and Thomas Sinas spent countless hours pouring over the new legislation in the days following its passage. As a result, they’ve authored “Navigating the Chaos: The New No-Fault Legislation,” a comprehensive overview of the new auto no-fault law. In addition, we published created “Making Smart Choices: A Summary Guide to the New Auto No-Fault Law.” This guide provides insight into options Michigan consumers have never faced before when making their auto insurance purchasing decisions. This consumer resource is free to everyone.
It is our hope that everyone in Michigan has a better understanding of the new auto no-fault law, from those injured in Michigan auto accidents and their families or caregivers to fellow legal professionals, medical staff, and the general public.
