Michigan’s Unique Insurance Laws
Michigan has a unique law when it comes to car accidents, unlike any other in the nation. Our laws require no-fault insurance coverage, which means that when you are in an accident, your own insurance company pays for any basic costs, regardless of who caused the accident. These payments include basic costs such as:
- Medical expenses for your injuries
- A partial payment of lost wages for up to three years
- Repairs for damage to other people’s property, but does not include repairs for damage to other cars
This law does not include repairs to your car. Your collision and comprehensive insurance pays for any damages to your car, depending on the type of coverage you have.
This law has many benefits for Michigan residents because we pay higher insurance rates than other states. When you have an auto accident, you know your insurance will cover many of the costs associated with that accident. It even protects you from some lawsuits if another driver sues you. We are happy to go over your insurance coverage with you for free to discuss how your accident is covered.
