Michigan is one of a dozen US states that requires no-fault insurance. But what exactly does this mean? The principle behind no-fault insurance is to lower the overall cost of insurance by requiring policy holders to file claims with their own insurance companies.
How does this lower costs? Well, “traditional” auto insurance requires a determination of who was at fault for the accident. This means that even some of the most simple or “small” claims can make it into the court system for a formal decision. Once it is determined who is at fault, that individual’s insurance company then pays out the claim. As you can probably image, this can create a significant amount of backlog in the system, which then increases costs for insurance companies and policy holders.
