State Rep. Aaron Miller this week joined House colleagues in unveiling wide-ranging legislation repealing Michigan’s no-fault car insurance system.
The measures aim at bringing relief to Michigan’s drivers, who pay the most expensive car insurance premiums in the nation. The eight-bill package eliminates the no-fault system and moves Michigan to a full tort system similar to other states such as Indiana.
Miller said Michigan’s broken no-fault car insurance system is holding hard-working Michigan drivers’ pocketbooks hostage.
The plan continues the mandate that all Michigan drivers have insurance, but provides more choice and flexibility by eliminating the mandate to buy unlimited medical coverage. Accident victims will have the ability to sue at-fault drivers for economic damages and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering.
The bill package has been referred to the House Insurance Committee.
