What happens in out-of-state accidents? Does your no-fault insurance policy apply or will you face a negligence lawsuit. Find out how Michigan law works.

The Michigan No-Fault Act doesn’t stop at the state borders. Michigan residents bring their high-quality personal injury protection with them on vacation, while on out-of-state business, and even on trips to Canada, ready to cover all kinds of out-of-state accidents.

The first question is whether the person injured is covered for injuries suffered out-of-state. To receive benefits, the injured person must be a named insured on a Michigan no-fault insurance policy or have a relative in his or her Michigan residence with a policy. The residence requirement can pose problems for college students and others who spend significant parts of the year out-of-state.

Out-of-state residents who are injured in Michigan may also be entitled to benefits, if they are operating a vehicle covered by a Michigan policy. If non-residents have auto insurance in their home state, they may still be entitled to coverage if their insurance provider also sells policies in Michigan.
