No-Fault Explained: Motor Vehicle Accident

Auto accident attorneys at Christensen Law explain what counts as a motor vehicle accident under the Michigan No-Fault Auto Insurance Act?

You know if you are driving and get into an accident, your no-fault insurance covers you. But what about while you are getting out of your car? What if you are hurt changing your oil? What counts as a motor vehicle accident?
Was it an Accident?

Your Michigan no-fault auto insurance applies to accidental bodily injury. Before you can receive any benefits there needs to have been a motor vehicle accident. That means:

• You can’t receive benefits for intentional acts (including someone running into you on purpose). There are other ways to receive compensation for intentional injuries, but they do not come from your insurance.

• You can’t receive benefits for accumulated injuries, like back pain from too much driving. However, you can be compensated if an incident aggravates an existing injury.
