Wigod and Falzon Law Firm Explains Recent Changes in Michigan Laws
The recent changes in auto insurance laws in Michigan make it imperative that an injured driver seek help from a personal injury attorney.

Southfield, MI – The law firm of Wigod and Falzon in Southfield, Michigan deals with the complex Michigan auto insurance laws every day.  They are in the best position to explain to residents of the greater Detroit area how changes in the laws affect personal injury claims.

Michigan motorists are required to purchase no-fault auto insurance coverage.  The Southfield insurance attorneys at Wigod & Falzon explain that no-fault auto insurance means that each driver involved in an accident is responsible for their injury expenses, no matter who causes the accident. 

When the law was enacted in 1973, that coverage had to include unlimited personal injury protection. Personal injury protection pays for medical expenses, lost wages, and other expenses of the personal injury.

As of July 1, 2020, drivers are now allowed to decide on their own if they want to purchase unlimited personal injury protection.  They still have to purchase no-fault auto insurance, but the Southfield personal injury lawyers at Wigod & Falson explain that now drivers can choose to cap their coverage at $50,000 for drivers on Medicaid, or $250,000 or $500,000. This results in a lower premium for the person buying the insurance policy. 

However, the Southfield injury attorneys at Wigod & Falzon explain that this also means if a motorist has a car accident with injuries, the driver is responsible for their own injury expenses out of their own pocket after expenses exceed the limit they chose.  

It’s a very risky choice. Hospital expenses alone can easily top $250,000, not to mention lost wages during recuperation.
