Michigan auto no-fault law is tricky to understand, especially given the legislative changes in recent years and the numerous court decisions interpreting the No-Fault Act. That is why Lansing auto accident lawyers George Sinas, Bryan Waldman and Stephen Sinas take time out of their busy schedules to teach soon-to-be attorneys at Michigan State University College of Law about Michigan auto no-fault law.
With six decades of combined experience handling Michigan auto no-fault law cases, George, Bryan and Stephen tag-team to teach the popular “Michigan Auto No-Fault Insurance Law” course at MSU. The class provides law students with a thorough and practical understanding of Michigan auto no-fault law and is typically broken down into the following topics:
- No-Fault Act overview
- compulsory insurance
- PIP benefit eligibility and disqualification
- PIP and PPI benefits
- benefit coordination and government benefits setoffs
- insurer priority
- PIP claim processing
- PIP litigation
- tort claims and litigation
Along with the assigned reading of significant Michigan auto no-fault case law, students use a textbook co-authored by George titled “Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law in Michigan – Revised” (2015 edition). Students also take advantage of a brochure called “The Michigan Auto No-Fault Law: Your Rights & Benefits,” written by George and other Sinas Dramis partners, and available exclusively for free through the Sinas Dramis Law Firm.
Bryan, a competitive cyclist, also focuses a significant portion of his practice on Michigan bicycle law and the relationship between motorists, cyclists and Michigan auto no-fault law. Bryan is a member of Bike Law USA, a national network of attorneys who advocate for cyclists, and brings a unique perspective to the MSU class.
Each year, George, Stephen and Bryan look forward to teaching MSU students about Michigan auto no-fault law and to sharing their expertise with up-and-coming attorneys.
