"Michigan drivers deserve to know the truth before their rights are taken away at the behest of auto insurance industry profits.
Farmington Hills, MI (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
Michigan Legislators and Gov. Rick Snyder are proposing reforms to the state's 40-year-old No-Fault insurance system.
The most recent proposal, presented by Gov. Snyder in an April 18, 2013 press conference, includes capping the currently unlimited, lifetime No Fault medical benefits for seriously injured accident victims. The proposal would also would dismantle the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association, which covers accident-related medical costs for claims exceeding $500,000, according to a press release on Gov. Snyder's website.
"Gov. Snyder and the auto insurance industry are pushing No Fault reform without giving the public the facts, and evidence that our system needs to be fixed in the first place," said Steven M. Gursten, head of Farmington Hills-based Michigan Auto Law.
To help Michigan drivers better understand the No Fault insurance system and the ramifications of recent No Fault reform measures, the attorneys of Michigan Auto Law are providing the following resource center:
The resource center has easy-to-understand information on the latest developments in Michigan No Fault reform. Michigan Auto Law has provided analytical articles, videos, new stories and graphics to fit the needs of every reader.
"Proposed No Fault reform measures would devastate Michigan accident victims by leaving them lacking critical medical care, and forcing them to turn to tax payer-funded Medicaid," Gursten said. "Gov. Snyder is pushing his agenda under the guise that it will save drivers money on their premiums, but he's doing so with many unsubstantiated, inaccurate justifications."
"Michigan drivers deserve to know the truth before their rights are taken away at the behest of auto insurance industry profits."
