Michigan’s New No-Fault Law Explained

Michigan, the No-Fault State

Michigan is a no-fault state, meaning that every owner of a car in the state is required by law to purchase certain basic coverages to pay for expenses in the event of an auto accident. Insurance can pay for expenses and damages no matter who caused the accident.

The new no-fault law will allow drivers to select PIP medical coverage options ranging from unlimited to no coverage. These options will also change who is responsible to pay benefits for certain types of accidents, especially if the injured claimant lacks insurance coverage.

We’ve provided a list of common questions associated with Michigan’s new no-fault law and answers that can explain how your personal injury claim can change, and who is responsible for paying benefits if you’ve been injured in a car accident.
