Michigan adopted the no-fault system in 1973 to increase the level of benefits paid to injured persons. This no-fault policy provides unlimited lifetime medical & rehabilitation benefits and wage loss benefits up to 3 years, regardless of who is at fault. In exchange, Michigan motorists give up the right to sue except when somebody is killed or very seriously injured.
The damage to your vehicle also falls under the no-fault system. This means if you have comprehensive and/or collision on your policy and you get in an accident, your own insurance company will cover you no matter who’s at fault. If there’s another vehicle involved, their insurance company will take care of them. Our no-fault laws help keep the court system unclogged, cost less in the long run and you can get your vehicle and/or body fixed much quicker.
The Michigan Catastrophic Claim Association (MCCA). The MCCA pays for medical claims paid by an insurer that exceeds a certain amount or threshold. This assessment is added to every vehicle on your policy.
