GOP Continues Push For No-Fault Insurance Reform

Car insurance is a tricky subject for a lot of people. After getting in an accident, there can be a lot of bills that pile up quickly, leaving people without the funds to live their normal life. Michigan is planning changes that might make that more difficult in extreme cases.

Proposed changes to the law would take away the unlimited lifetime benefits that auto-insurance companies are currently capable of paying out. In its place would be a $10-million lifetime cap. This move comes after an attempt by House Republicans to pass a similar no-fault insurance policy last year.

In addition to that change would be a promise of 10% savings for the first two years that they have coverage. This will be complimented by a new low income focused plan that has a $50,000 coverage cap, although that still won’t help rural customers or people who have low credit scores and pay more as a result.

Both of these notions will work to make the car-insurance system more closely resemble that in other states. Michigan currently has the most generous system in the country.

Regardless of this, however, it can be a problem for people who have serious accidents and don’t have the right kind of legal help to see them through to recovery. A good attorney takes the responsible parties to court and will fight in order to get you everything you deserve and the certainty of a hassle free recovery. When injured parties are in a lawsuit where insurance companies are involved, it can often be a confusing and drawn out battle.  But it doesn’t have to be when you have someone who will fight at your side.
