Know Your Rights

Michigan law mandates how and when car accident victims can recover damages. There are time-sensitive precautions to consider if you’ve experienced a collision caused by an uninsured driver, or a ​“hit and run” type collision.

Michigan is a “No-Fault” state, meaning you are entitled to certain benefits from your own auto insurance company. However, you can still bring a claim against the at fault driver, if you have been injured, disfigured, or a loved one has been killed. Understanding what benefits you are entitled to, and from which party, is one of the many reasons to get an attorney involved as soon as possible.

A Look at Michigan Law Regarding Car Accident Cases

Michigan drivers must secure the minimum amount of insurance required by law to legally get behind the wheel. Based on the Michigan’s “No-Fault” Insurance laws, this includes purchasing three different types of car insurance, including:

  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP): This part of your policy may cover all medical expenses and up to 85% of lost wages for the following three years. Additional routine household services that have been disrupted due to car accident injuries may be quantified for compensation as well.
  • Property Protection (PPI): If your car causes property damage or if it destroys any part of a properly-parked vehicle, PPI will pay, up to your policy limit, in related costs.
  • Residual Liability Insurance: This is liability insurance which would cover the at-fault driver. It is highly recommended that our clients maintain underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage. These types of coverages will cover you, in the event you are struck by someone with little to no insurance.


The original legislation went into effect in 1973, however there have been several amendments since. Most significantly, on June 11, 2019, there were sweeping changes to how our no-fault system works. After that date insurers were allowed to sell less than the prior “unlimited” personal injury protection benefits. Therefore, in order to know what benefits you are entitled to, you must know your insurance coverage and whether your auto insurance is coordinated with your health insurance. This is one of the many reasons to contact us at Fraser & Souweidane.

Generally speaking, most auto accident cases are subject to Michigan’s three-year statute of limitations on negligence claims. There may be instances where this time period is shortened.

Michigan is a “comparative negligence” state, meaning fault must be determined in all auto accident cases. There are several things that play into a fault analysis, including party and witness statements, vehicle and roadway evidence, and black box data from vehicles and cell phone evidence. Our team regularly collects this evidence and has expertise on proving negligence, however it is important to collect this information as soon as possible. Contacting our law firm can put you at ease knowing we act immediately to secure the necessary evidence to win your case.
