On February 5, 2019, the Michigan Court of Appeals issued its Opinion in Guntzviller v City of Detroit, which reaffirms that in order for an individual to qualify for No-Fault Personal Injury Protection benefits, one’s injuries must arise out of “the ownership, operation, maintenance or use of a motor vehicle as a motor vehicle” pursuant to MCL 500.3105(1). In Guntziller, the plaintiff was attempting to enter a City of Detroit bus when the bus driver recognized her a person “who previously had harassed other passengers on the bus.” The bus driver then closed the door in an attempt to prevent the plaintiff from boarding the bus. While the bus was stopped, a physical altercation ensued, and the plaintiff alleged to have sustained bodily injury as a result.
