Risk factors that all drivers face

As drivers, we often become numb to just how dangerous the roads can be. The alarming facts - such as data showing that nearly 1,000 people were killed in Michigan in 2015 alone - become nothing more than numbers. It's easy to think we won't become one of those statistics.

On February 25, having not received a payment from Hallie, Titan sent her a notice of cancellation, with an effective cancellation date of February 25, 2012.

Understanding No-Fault Insurance In Michigan

Michigan insurance law is based on a no-fault policy. In a nutshell, this means that recovery for damages after an automobile accident will come from your insurance company regardless of who was at fault for the accident. With this system, insured persons are protected from being sued unless certain circumstances apply, such as if there is an extremely severe injury, a fatality, or a few other very specific criteria factor into the accident.
