Michigan Auto Insurance Coverage


There are two sides to every argument, so when it comes to looking at Michigan's Automobile Medical Insurance, there are those who think it should be reformed and those who think it should stay how it is. Currently, Michiganders are required to pay for unlimited lifetime benefits. Those who think the insurance program is fluky have a strong argument. According to an opinion article in Sunday's AnnArbor.com paper written by Pete Kuhnmuench, Michigan has the highest mandated auto insurance medical benefit in the country. The op-ed also makes the argument that Michigan is the only state which "mandates unlimited, lifetime medical benefits."

Bicyclist Must Obey Law or Face Serious Consequences

City Prosecutors in San Francisco recently filed felony vehicular manslaughter charges against a bicyclist who hit and killed a 67 year old pedestrian in a crosswalk. The bicyclist allegedly ran a red light at a high rate of speed and struck the elderly woman. See http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303410404577466990820318610.html Bicyclist not only have to be concerned about their own criminal liability but also must be aware that in Michigan their own negligence can significantly reduce or eliminate their ability to collect benefits under the Michigan No Fault Law.
